For more info Contact

Leader: Sarah @ hettenbach.s (at) for passcode and PLEASE include current level of fitness and experience in exposed, scrambling terrain.


See route description at link below. This will be an "exploratory hike" for the leaders, both competent climbers and scramblers but have not done this exact route before. Please be prepared for a water crossing that may be high dependent on snowmelt, willow-bashing on the return and some fun scrambling on the sawtooth portion of the route. This is a long and strenuous route. There are areas of exposure and a good head for heights and previous experience will be helpful. Pace will be fast with considerations for the parties involved. A helmet is required. Please email leader with previous scrambling experience or other questions to determine if this is a good trip for you!


Return trip may involve a food stop in Idaho Springs if people are interested.
