|Peak:||Pikes Peak (14er)|
|Date of Information:||03/28/2013|
After last weekend's snow storm, it appears that very few people have attempted the summit. Between the Incline cut-off and Barr Camp, the snow was mostly slushy and muddy. Between Barr Camp and the A-frame, there was very little packed snow, it was mostly thick in places & wet and post-holing was required. Above tree-line, the trail was mostly drifted over with snow, making route finding difficult. At this point, we made our own trail but due to the loose, wet, thick snow, post-holing became a major issue. After breaking trail and post-holing for another hour, we turned back due to lack of time (and a snow storm had just started), but we managed to get about 1.5 miles from the summit.
