Notes

Saturday:

This is a PPG HAMS class training climb. We will backback up the trail a short distance (less than a mile) to set up a camp on snow if there is still snow left this low. We will practice roped travel and our 6:1, Canadian Drop-C crevasse rescue.

Sunday:

We will get up at 3:30am and be hiking around 4:30am to climb the Dead Dog Coulior route up Torrey's Peak:

After we reach the summit up Torrey's Peak, we will proceed over to Grays Peak. After we climb Grays Peak, we will return back to camp heading down the Lost Rat coulior. Once back at camp we will pack up camp, and drive home. We will likely stop in Idaho Springs for a late lunch.

THIS TRIP WAS NOT SUCCESSFUL. WE WERE CAUGHT UP IN A MASSIVE ROCKFALL IN THE DEAD DOG COULIOR AND 2 OF THE 5 OF US WERE HIT. THIS ENDED THE TRIP IMMEDIATELY. WE SELF EVACUATED AND THE INJURED WENT TO THE HOSPITAL ER FOR BE CHECKED OUT. BRITT SUFFERED SIGNIFICANT HEAD WHIPLASH WHEN STRUCK IN THE HEMET AND JIM RECEIVED A 4 INCH DEEP GASH IN HIS SCALP EVEN THROUGH HIS HELMET WHICH WAS BUSTED APART. JIM ALSO SUFFERED A ANKLE INJURY.
