Details

This hike will be a continuation of our Long Difficult Hike series. “If it’s not long it will be difficult; if it’s not difficult it will be long.” No respite.

For some hikers this can be a very challenging hike. As we do our ascent we will be mostly off-trail, hiking up steep terrain, hopping over down trees, scrambling through and around boulders, and bushwhacking. The final short pitch to the summit will require some moderate 3rd class scrambling.

Weather permitting, we may have the option to do a short celebratory “picnic” back at the trailhead. With this in mind consider bringing a snack, beverage, and folding chair. Alternatively, we also have the option to stop at a fun taproom in Woodland Park.

Leader will send out a detailed trip write-up, including GPX file, prior to departure day.

Finally, please monitor your email and text messages that morning in case the trip needs to be rescheduled due to weather.
