Longs peak covered in snow and ice (mid may), reached summit w no gear. Pretty stupid in hindsight, but epic while doing it.
Longs, so sketch.
New in boulder, love backpacking and hiking
Help support your Meetup
This is a group for folks who enjoy good company and want to bag some 14ers along the way.
This group is open to men or women of all age groups who have a decent fitness level and some hiking experience.
You will be self supporting and need to carry all your gear necessary.
You are responsible for yourself, to check weather conditions, bring appropriate clothing, food, water and gear. This is not a guide system for folks.
We will attempt to keep people together but ultimately you are responsible for getting yourself up and down the moutain. We cannot endanger others because you are not prepared.
Every year people die attemtping to climb 14ers because they are not prepared. I am not trying to scare anyone off, I am simply trying to be open and honest with everyone.
I suggest 14ers.com as a great website on line to help with routes, trailheads, weather etc.
I look forward to many glorious adventures with you all ~ Marty
