Colorado Fourteener Peak Bagging
We will be spending a week peak bagging in the Sangre de Cristo mountains. We will hike in to basecamp near Lower South Colony Lake. Saturday: fly in to Denver (please arrive no later than Saturday morning); hit the REI (you will want to rent or buy a climbing helmet for the class 3 climbs); drive to the trailhead; camp at or near trailhead. Sunday: acclimation/free day; hike a short distance to basecamp near Lower South Colony Lake; dayhike, rest in camp, scout the routes, or whatever you want to do. Monday - Friday: bag peaks: Kit Carson, Crestone Peak, Broken Hand, Crestone Needle, and Humboldt; all class 2 and class 3 routes; some route finding and easy non-technical scrambling will be involved. Friday or Saturday: hike out Saturday or Sunday: fly home (please no earlier than Saturday evening so we don't have to rush back after the hike) We will be renting an SUV to get us to the trailhead, so be prepared to split the cost of that plus gas.
