I think we'll get some snow on the western slope Tuesday and Tuesday night; might get some over Quandary as well.

No plans to cancel if no snow. Assume everyone has pretty much made plans.

Last year was cold and windy. This Saturday actually looks pretty nice. I'll take it! :-D

I'm bringing the family. Is anyone starting earlier than 8 am? Might be a good idea to stagger the group.
I'm slow and fat. Unfortunately, those are my good qualities.

Anyone interested in carpooling from Wooly Mammoth Dinosaur Lot (directly across from the gas station).
I say we meet 5:45AM. I am in a Silver 4runner with a 14ers.com bumper sticker.

Addressing a few emails asking about a harder follow-on peak in November or December. I'll do a separate thread after the WW this Saturday.

On a preliminary basis, some thoughts - please feel free to comment. Mike R. wants to do Capitol some time in November or early December. May be down possibly for Pyramid or North Maroon. Also wouldn't mind checking out Ellingwood Arete in Nov/Dec or the west approach for the Crestones. Another fun one might be San Luis from the standard route - taking the road via bike or skis.

I'd also like any of these after Dec 21, so please post or pm if interested in a pre-winter preview or a winter ascent, or both.

Let me sweeten the pot. I'll be in Keith's 4Runner and we can discuss politics, guns, dogs and ice-climbing if you like. Shotgun!

Interested, but I already have the following dates booked up with other trips:

Nov 22-24
Nov 27-30
Dec 7-17
Dec 24-25
Dec 27-29

If it's outside those dates, I'd be interested, especially in the Crestones.

I've recently moved to Colorado from Denmark and have conquered Pikes Peak, Gray's and Torrey's, and Elbert. I was looking to do a peak this weekend and ran across this thread, so you better bet I'll be there! I'm looking forward to meeting some others that share my same interest! (I'm surprised how little people in Colorado enjoy climbing their mountains...)
