Pettingell Pk is the highest pk in the Clear Crk group N of Loveland Pass. Ascend trail to Herman Lk then gain the E ridge for some fun scrambling. We will return via a more pedestrian route. Pace moderate, expected climbing time 7 - 7.5 hours, if this works for you feel free to contact the leader. Please include your CMC number which will allow the leader to sign you up. This is a fun class 3 climb but not so if the rocks are wet. This trip will be changed to something more appropriate or canceled if the weather is inappropriate. HELMET REQUIRED.
Recent solid verifiable class 3 skills at a moderate pace are required for this trip. NECESSARY equipment a climbing helmet and the 10 essentials.
