Nice, I wonder how many people will claim to summit Pikes using this ;)

COG will probably never open early enough in the season for this to be applicable... but I would potentially use it to claim a snowboard descent of the Y Couloir. Lol.

Shoot that’s a great idea ha. Maybe in a crazy big snow year?

Excellent! I have driven up and hiked up. Now I can claim the Trifecta with a train trip. Is there a special icon for that like a winter summit? :lol:

Earned it, I claim it... I had hiked the tracks during the closure. 18 Miles RT, ~6,500 gain. Messed my back up walking on cog tracks for 18 miles. Never again...
