We will shuttle some of vehicles to the Siphon Draw trailhead and drive approximately 22 miles to the Carney Springs trailhead. From the trailhead we will hike to West Boulder Saddle, and away we go, following the ridgeline to the Flatiron and down Siphon Draw. Some scrambling and bouldering. The high altitude changes the local weather patterns. Rain, hail, sleet, and low clouds are always a possibility. Since the weather is unpredictable, bring a gallon of water, food, sunscreen, rain gear, warm jacket, and gloves. Long pants recommended.
Don’t forget the camera!
