Took my 8 year old son up the East Ridge for his first 14er on 8/11. Weather was perfect, just a few drops of rain late in the afternoon. Must have been 25 people on the summit when we arrived which is to be expected on a Saturday.

The 4wd road does not require 4wd at all (at least when dry). We had a 2wd Ford Escape rental that easily made it. There were several cars that went all the way to the top too. Just a few large rocks to work around.

Great trip!
