I can't see it being an issue with access. We haven't gotten any significant snowfall. I have no doubt the road might have some icy/snow patches on it.

Slightly off-topic, but... I've climbed Pikes Peak from both the Barr Trail (in August 1987) and Crags CG (in September 2012), and while the Barr Trail is scenic enough, the elevation gain is brutal. I much preferred the trail from Crags CG, despite the road as you near the summit. Enjoy your climb!

Road to the TH was clear except for some minimal packed snow today. A great climb.
