Crestone Needle

Postby jmanner » Fri Jun 21, 2013 8:28 am

I was thinking of climbing the entire Easy Gully on Crestone Needle Sunday. I was wondering if anyone has done it and if they have any thoughts about whether it is worth it or not. Thanks guys.

10% chance I hit Ellingwood Arete on Sunday. If so and you want to pm me Sunday night, may have info.

If not, would like to hit it some time during this dry spell.

Get back to the trailhead by 2pm if you want any chance to avoid insane smoke...
