Typical November day in Colorado high country, cold and windy.
Nice Short climb, steep.
Very quick sprint to get them both. Weather was nice; - cool and windy but no snow/rain.
from Weston Pass with Ptarmigan
Went up Weston & Ptarmigan as a booby prize from horrendous weather in the Elks. Easy as they come. Weather wasn't the best.
Climbed Weston with my "usual suspects" group, and also strolled over to Ptarmigan.
I'll tell you, this route just goes from "sitting in the truck" to "chugging directly uphill" in no time. The views from the ridge are fantastic, however, and well worth the lung and leg burn. Partners: Deb & Candace. Dog: Stimpy.
