I climbed Dinosaur Mountain in the morning, then Bear Peak via Fern Canyon. I had intended to climb Nebel Horn on my way back from Bear Peak. However, when I returned to the saddle and started climbing toward it, I decided I might not have enough daylight left for the route-finding required. So, Nebel Horn, we'll meet some other time...
The summit is pretty cool, there's a nice natural wind shelter, which was nice because it was cold and windy at the top. Tagged this on a big loop from CU Campus, up to Bear Peak, over to Green Mtn, then down back to campus.
Re: Northwest Face from NCAR Trailhead via Fern Canyon
They put those closure signs all over the best places. I never see those signs and I wouldn't admit it if I did. I'd like to see a Boulder bird pig catch me up there; that's my briar patch up there and I'm Brer Rabbit.
