Make sure to bring water, snacks, warm layers, gloves and microspikes.
Bad weather (rain, high winds) postpones/cancels.
By attending this hike, you assume all responsibility for your own safety. Mountaineering in Colorado can be very dangerous. Altitude sickness, dehydration, and fast-building storms are the most common problems. Please be in shape and self-sufficient.
