The North Face of Mt. Alice...
The North Face of Mt. Alice and Hourglass Ridge. You can see Hourglass Ridge just below the lower portion of the North Face.



Hourglass Ridge is a pretty exposed ridge, with large drop-offs on either side. Could make you a little concerned if you don't like being exposed, but with basic caution, it's nothing to be scared about.

on the peak's face. I wonder if people climb it often. Nice photos and mountain submission, BTW.

I often wonder the same thing. In all honesty, I have never herd about anyone climbing any of the cliffs or couloirs up this mountain.

Hasn't voted

This hike sounds like a blast! Ive been looking for a couple good hikes for my brother and I to do when we come out at the end of the summer. What is the total mileage if you ascended hourglass and descended down the other side? Do you recommend any other fun hikes like this in the park?

Total mileage will be in the 18 mile rage for Mt. Alice. Great day out!

You really can't go wrong with any hikes in the park...check out summits in the mummy range, Mt. Lady Washington, Long's Peak, Chiefs Head...all are great!

tatejnsnOne more Q.

We hike pretty often and are in pretty good shape, so we move along pretty well. What time should we be leaving the trailhead so we aren't down real late?

That's hard to say. Conservatively I'd say 4...but you could probably get away with a later start...just depends on the weather...
