Good work with the climb and report. That didn't look easy.

Thanks for the pics of the area, and in particular Ogalalla. I have a goal to visit the summit of every *legal* 13er in the IPW by end of year. Ogalalla is the last remaining.

Not sure I can get there in the next month, and the conditions might change significantly between now and then, but your report gives me some hope.

Way to persevere, Kevin. I saw this pop up on LoJ and was hoping you'd put something together. That is one heck of a bushwhack, especially with the snow cover. What do you have left above 13K in RMNP?

Yep, Copeland is a beast in all seasons but summer. I think it would go pretty well in spring after the snow consolidates though on the right day. The deep snow would cover up a lot of that deadfall! I have Ogalalla and Alice left for RMNP 13ers, which I will probably do as snow climbs. Lots of stuff to explore!
