Yeah, 13 miles is well over what all the 14ers would be in one day from Chicago Basin.

My other guess was the Enchantments in the Cascades. Which are pretty tough permits to get, so no trolling unless you reregister as a girl or something.

I'm guessing Music Pass to one of the Sand Creek Lakes, then linking Tijeras, Music, Milwaukee and maybe Pico Aislado.

Doesn't fit the class 2 ridge running that was mentioned in o.p.

Day 1: hike in Cotton Creek from 8500' to 10500'.
Day 2: Electric->De Anza->Marcy->13513 (is that even possible? if so, it might be class 2.)
Day 3: Owen et al.

2000' gain on the way in is inconsistent with any Sangre de Cristo lake camp on a western approach. Either it's east side, or it's a sub-lake camp site, or you're underestimating the hike in!

You're right. I'm pretty sure those peaks have all been linked via a ridge scramble, but the route would go Class 3.

Sorry to disappoint, but this won't be the annual organized Gurlz Hike. Just a few gals who enjoy long days and multiple summits of uncrowded 13ers. Beer sherpa still welcome. :)

Wow, I stepped away from my computer yesterday and suddenly find myself on page 3! Thanks for the entertainment, brightened my morning! :-D

Definitely yes on the beer sherpa!

And yes, you're on the right track, it is Cotton Creek, and not camping at the lake.

Now the question is, which peaks, on which days, and in what order?

One item of note is, my shorter day is longer than I thought, 8.5-9 mi or thereabouts and may involve some class 3, I haven't researched it that well yet.

Longer day should stay at class 2 from what I've read.

Definitely keeping weather and bailout options (although, limited) a factor in my route planning. I've only just started looking at these routes so, my initial thoughts may be flawed....

And odds are: my longer day is probably going to just land me in my tent on the shorter day. While the rest of the group is heading out, I may be curled up in a sleeping bag, disillusioned, and clutching a bottle of wine....

Darned topos, always make me far too ambitious!

Looks like we need a beer/wine sherpa now. This may be more appealing to d_baker now, since he seems to be the cultured, fine wine kinda guy while the rest of us girls are classless beer drinkers. :iluvbeer:

I'm not much of a classless beer drinker...I fall more into the tawdry wine sipper, category. So, he may still not be interested in our company....

Or perhaps he could just find a campsite far from ours, after dropping off the fermented goods, of course!

That's quite alright - I've hiked with many of them enough to know a day away from each other is also quite inviting! :P
