Yes, thanks! I have looked at a number of ways to climb Holy Cross - including going to Tuhare Lakes - but they've all started off of the Tigiwon Road. I knew these other approaches existed, but haven't researched them much - so couldn't say much about beginner route or not. I will say the USFS person did at least indicate that it would probably be a backpack from that Fancy Pass TH.
And thanks for that pic. I had only seen that area on the topo. This really helps see the route up from Tuhare Lakes.
Obviously, the best outcome would be some accommodation made for normal traffic along Tigiwon Road like Bill suggested, but I'm not counting on it. Looks like I'll be researching my options.
Also, I imagine that there is still a LOT of snow up there, and I think I heard 3" to 6" more inches coming today.
