Steve, sorry it had to get moved to the Echo Lake approach. It does seem to make good sense.

As to winds, I'm no weather expert, just the average joe-six-pack mountaineer obsessively fixated on alpine weather. The GFS models (accessed via the UCAR site) suggest, for now, that Tuesday is marginally better for winds at the 500mb height (approximately 15,000 feet depending on barometric pressure.) The weather window starts ramping up by Monday, and appears to get into swing by Tue-Wed. Of course, this is Murphy's law. And Murphy tells me I have to work on Monday.

While I would personally not be able to make a Monday date, with some shuffling, Tuesday would work.

If Monday works best for everyone, then please accept my well wishes and congratulations on an incredible journey getting all of them in winter. If Tuesday works out, I'll plan on being there.

Jim

Monday. Monday. Monday.

We are headed to an Idaho springs motel on Sunday afternoon, headed to bed early, and trying to leave the Echo Lake TH at about 5:15AM.

Beau Jo's 5:30??? If you are interested in that, call me on my cell late afternoon and I'll give you an update on our progress. phone 3 by PM.

Everybody, sorry for the Monday pick, but I really wanted my brother to come along. I only have two other weekend dates available, the others belong to the mother of my children and the Horn Fork Basin trip. It was looking like i better just pick a sunny day and Bill (Gladbach) could only make Monday. I'll see a bunch of you March 18-19.

Steve,

I was holding off til the last minute to see if I could join you but it's not going to happen. Really wish I could.

Be safe and have a great time with your brother.

I think you mean Yummm.....;)
And yes, I do believe that is what we had on our trip to Uncompahgre! good stuff.

And oh Mountain Gods, please don't take the 'damning' the wrong way, it is all in jest.
Instead, please just give us a respite from your mercy from time to time, and please allow us safe passage, along with calm winds on the summit. Thank you!
