Pikes Peak- Snow Climb (4/5)- Avi concern?

Postby Josh B » Wed Apr 03, 2013 8:11 am

My partner and I are thinking about doing one of the snow climbs out of Glenn Cove this Friday. We are thinking about strapping the skies on our backpacks to do a ski decent on the snow field that runs alongside the "chimney". Our biggest concern right now is the new snow and lack of time for consolidation to occur. Has anybody checked out the snow pack lately or have any other valuable insight at this time? Are avi conditions a concern right now on the peak. We will assess the snow pack ourselves but would like to get some community input as well. Thank you in advance for any help you can provide.
