Elbert Saturday?

Postby nessles » Fri Mar 01, 2013 9:25 am

So I've still got my sights on Elbert, and the weather for Saturday looks pretty beautiful - http://forecast.weather.gov/MapClick.php?lat=39.11780842202459&lon=-106.44550323486328

Looking to do the East Ridge to minimize any avy exposure, but I'll be pretty cautious the whole way.

Anyone else interested?

My buddy and I are most likely going up Saturday via the East Ridge. However, it might be Sunday if I don't finish some work today. Hopefully, we get to go tomorrow! Its a perfect winter day! [-o<

I hate wind (voluntarily). I'm out. Have fun. Be safe.

Hiked Elbert today, winds were sustained at 60-70mph gusting to around 100mph; Don't trust the forecast. I put in a trench from TH to Treeline. Wont need snowshoes past gaining the east ridge, but certainly will from treeline to the east ridge, unless of course you love to posthole. Hopefully the wind dies down for you guys tomorrow, good luck.
