Mount Elbert gathering-March

Postby Scott » Thu Feb 06, 2014 7:33 pm

Is anyone interested in a late Winter Gathering on Mount Elbert via the South Trailhead? Those who want could make it either a day trip or overnighter.

I was thinking of Maybe March 8.

I'd be up for that.....as long as I25 stays open. This weather can be iffy for road conditions.

You may want to put a post on the 14er forum if you have not already done so.

Sounds good. There could be several options.

1. Friday night hike in-Saturday summit.

2. Saturday day trip.

3. Saturday night-Sunday summit

4. Sunday day trip.

I'd probably be most interested in #1, with the #2 joining us in the morning, but if the group is huge, we can divide out through various options. Environmental impact isn't as concerning in winter as in summer, because we will be on snow, but if too many were interested, I don't know if I'd feel good about a single gigantic group.
