Details

One of the most popular mountain hikes in Fort Collins, nearby Greyrock mountain offers stunnning view of peaks to the west such as Comanche. We will summit the mountain via the west side Weenie route reportedly named after a CMC'er who toted a grille for a celebratory summit roast but it could also apply to the relatively short scramble length compared to Flatirons classics making this a good intro scramble. Starting at the standard trailhead on the Poudre river, we will approach via the west side Meadow trail going offtrail shortly before reaching the junction with the Greyrock trail. Targeting an obvious west facing gully as the slope becomes steeper we will slide through a keyhole, traverse a few slabby rock ledges, before reaching the bottom of the 4th class face where we will fix a few ropes. Trip participants will need basic scrambling skills and equipment including a harness and prusik/ropeman tie-in skills. Optional are a pair of sticky rubber climbing shoes and a helmet although the latter is highly encouraged. The lead/coleads will bring ropes, rock protection & anchors, grille and weenies. Total hiking/scramble time should be under 6 hours but depends on the size and skill of the group.
