Activities this group are involved in can be risky. Every year people are hurt and killed because they go beyond their abilities, get lost, get caught in weather or bring the wrong gear. Event organizers and leaders are regular people like you and I.

We are not professional guides, you are responsible for yourself. By signing up for an event you acknowledge that you are solely responsible for your own safety and will do the necessary research to understand the conditions of the event and the gear you require.

Hike/climb Cataract Falls in Summit County, Colorado
Needs a date and time

Needs a location

Who is interest in hiking/climbing an alternate route up Cataract Falls in Summit County, Colorado this summer of 2016? I’m going up a climbing route I’ve never taken before, so be ready to explore, to climbing under/over fallen trees, to going over/under boulders, to do some cliff scrambling/scaling, bushwhacking and much more. I’m thinking about going back to the butt-kicking, physically straining/strenuous, climb up to the of the 400 feet high, cascading/vertical drop Cataract Falls. As all who have hiked/climbed Cataract Falls, it’s a not a “to take lightly” activity, where we’re had people get scratched, bruised, cut, gashed, scrapped and even had a twisted knee mishap. Safety is a must. Bring first aid gear, groves, long pants, long sleeve shirt, good hiking shoes. Let me know if sometime in July, August or September is a good month for you to go on another one of my exploratory adventures in the Eagle Nest Wilderness area, east of the Gore Range in Summit County, Colorado. Expect at least a 6 hour, 4 mile hike. Group limit is eight people for this wilderness hike. Here is a photoshow from the previous Beckwourth organization hike/climb up Cataract Falls above lower Cataract Lake back in 2009. http://www.photoshow.com/watch/qi8Vw5ft

Hello friends, and welcome to Outdoor Afro Colorado! For those of you who don't know me yet, I'm Kriste, and I'm beyond thrilled to serve as a co-leader alongside Roz Silva. Together, we will be sharing our love of the outdoors with you through lots of exciting events and outings to come. We're in the midst of putting plans together and will be posting lots more in the days ahead, but I wanted to drop in and offer you a big warm welcome in the meantime! Just last week, we were in Yosemite National Park for a powerful leadership summit that drew more than 60 immensely talented and passionate outdoor enthusiasts, and I'm so excited to pass along the spirit of all I took in there. These pics simply don't do it justice. Even so, we've got lots of natural beauty to explore right here in our backyard! So, get your hiking shoes and sunscreen ready, because it's about to be on in Colorado! I look forward to meeting you all in the outdoors real soon! ‪#‎outdoorafro ‪#‎naturalwonder ‪#‎OACOinthehouse From Kriste Peoples Visit the group on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1152361311476041/
