Has Anyone Climbed Mt. Big Chief?

Postby CGriesemer » Tue Aug 07, 2007 12:07 am

I have done a fair amount of 14'ers and dont run into conditioning problems, but I wanted to take my mom, a lifelong resident who doesnt do a ton of hiking, up Mt. Big Chief near Colorado Springs, had heard the views were really something, but I dont want to take her up something that is going to be too strenuous for someone not used to the elevation gain and incline.

So...has anyone done this mountain and care to share any thoughts?

I haven't done Big Chief yet either, but I heard there is some signifcant scrambling near the summit with some air. Make sure your mom can handle that.
