I've been wondering if Pikes Peak was a good one to try in winter. Thanks for the info!

Good work sharing some good information. Regarding Longs Peak, having climbed it 93 times, and in all 12 months of the year, I think climbing the West Face via The Trough from Glacier Gorge is probably going to be the shortest and safest route on the peak ... even though it's a grunt. If the weather moves in it's fairly easy to get back down to timberline with a glissade ... but remember The Trough gully ends in a cliff, so you have to move one gully to the north near the bottom.
Thanks, again, for the good work on this page ... Peace, Jim

Thanks ... looks good. Since The Trough is on the windward side of the mountain it's usually to wind packed or wind scoured to pose much of an avalanche treat. Of course, there are exceptions, like right after a wet spring snow storm.
Peace, Jim

Been perusing your list here for some time, Scott. Great page buddy. Definitely needed here on SP with all the increased attention these peaks are getting of late.
Thanks for putting this together.
Cheers!
---Enjoy your 19er! ;o)
