I'd also be interested in Sleeping Sexton or Clark Peak if anyone is nutso enough 8)
Elks, Elks, Elks!!!

Sorry, can't do weekdays this week...


Unfortunately that's a little bit out of my way, maybe a bit later this winter.

Spadflyer - word on the street is Hagerman has a virgin winter summit.

Let's talk Saturday. Maybe I'll follow Otina's boring plan :lol:

U-huh. I was thinking about Tweto et all, but Dyer sounds good too (wouldn't want to do that ridge solo with snow).
Hagerman will have to wait until next year for me as well.

Good traction is the important component while driving out of Montgomery Res in winter if the road is snowpacked. It's a long steady grade to get out of there.

That's because I don't use words like, "aite" and "cray."

But really, I'm quoting you here so you don't delete what you wrote. I want you to remember your words about me being smarter than you, Mario. :)

Sounds like we have a pretty awesome group. For those of us that don't know or are driving up seperately what is the best way to get there?

If you guys get to the trailhead and see silver VW Golf with someone sleeping in the back please bang loudly on the back window. Alternatively if there is a yellow bag next to the Golf, please kick it.

(Unless anyone knows of better places near Hoosier Pass where someone could dirtbag it for a night)

You can either go over Hoosier Pass from Breckenridge side, or come up from 285-Fairplay. There are a couple road options/directions, and I've gone 2 different ways both times. I just used my 14er iPhone app. There are lots of residential roads, but taking the "most traveled" should get you to the Res. Beyond there depends on the snow.

The roads were snowpacked last weekend and the gate at the reservoir is closed.
