Looking for hiking partners to kick off the 14er season. Starting with Handies this year, then its class 3s the rest of the year. :P

Hey man, I wanted to do Handies this past week. I called Lake City tourinst information center and asked them how far Cinammon Pass Road was accessible. I would not have been able to drive up to the Grizzly Gulch TH. So, I would probably wait till late May to let the road thaw out orrrrr park as far as you can drive then hike up and camp out.

I haven't done handies and would like to do so this year. If you shoot for May or whenever the road thaws out I might be up for it.

Count me in too. Regardless of whether you wait for the road to thaw, or choose to camp out, PM me if you're planning a trip.
