Lost: Camera on Calypso (Eldorado Canyon)

I forgot my red Nikon point and shoot camera on the last (3rd) pitch of Calypso. It is at the entrance of the cave/hole at the top. It is has climbing tape on the sides and bottom to prevent from scratches. Please let me know if anybody finds it. You can keep the camera just give me the pictures!

Just Kidding... ;)

Four-Pass Loop in late August?

Was planning on hitting up four pass loop this summer with some friends but it seems the only time we can all meet up is mid to late August. Would it be wise to try and hike this trail around this time (22-25th)?

Anyone Recognize this peak?

http://www.summitpost.org/view_object.p ... irm_post=7

I can't find it, and it's driving me crazy. I've poured over google earth and cannot find it. I believe it's somewhere near Estes park/ Roosevelt National Forest...

Sry for the low res image, it's all I had.

Thanks all!

Leadville Area, Early June 2015

A group of us will be spending a few days around Leadville in early June. I've never been in that area that early in the year. We will be interested in non-technical day hiking and general sight-seeing like ghost towns and mines. What is this year looking like for snow conditions? Will 13ers and 14ers be hikeable in regular hiking boots? Other suggested day hikes? Will trailheads be accessible? 4WD roads? Cottonwood Pass area? Will ...

Otis Peak - East Ridge

Looking for some beta from anyone that has ascended or descended the east ridge of Otis. I'm considering using it as either an ascent or descent option from the CD this August.

The Mountain page has a reference to Lisa Foster's book and the route going Class 2. I am assuming there is a short bushwhack from/near Lake Haiyaha to reach the ridge. Just looking for some first hand feedback. The pic below is the ...

Gore Range - Upper Slate thru to Booth


I'm looking at planning a shuttle trip this summer in the Gore Range. While perusing my topo, I got the idea of starting at the Rock Creek TH to Upper Slate Lake. Then continuing past S. America lake up and over into the Upper Piney Lake drainage. To top it off, I'd hop over to the Booth Lake drainage (via East Booth Pass), and finish at the Booth TH with a shuttle vehicle waiting. ...

Looking for snow melt, sunny spots


Headed back to my favorite area in the country the second week of April. Spring is a new time for me to visit. I'm having a terribly difficult time finding trails and campsites that are scenic but not laden with snow. Any locals with a sunny spot with some snow melt in mind? Spring breaks in the south do not exactly coincide with peak nature exploring times in the state. Looking forward to some ...

Denver area scramble?

I will be with some work colleagues in the Denver area this summer and am looking for something more then a hike but less then a cat 3 scramble if you know what I mean. We will visit Bergen Peak again this year (we hiked that last year). This time splitting into two groups; runners and walkers (need to summit this time). However, I am hoping to also find an additional trail that provides a ...

RMNP Conditions

Does any one have any current beta on conditions in RMNP, specifically on the route Martha (Mount Lady Washington/Chasm lake area)? I am looking to go up and climb that this weekend. Too early?
