Hiked up and down Pikes Peak via Barr Trail yesterday (Dec 10). Met 14ers. members dswink (Dave) and nelsoq (Quinten) along the route and finished the hike up and back down with them. Conditions were pretty much the way Dave (dswink) described them in his conditions report (see previous report). I thought I would add a report with pictures showing the conditions that he described. Picture #1 shows the East Face in the early morning hours from about a mile below Barr Camp. Picture #2 shows the trail between Barr Camp and timberline. Picture #3 shows the East Face during the descent. Picture #4 shows Dave and Quinten and trail conditions on the East Face during the descent.
