It qualifies as quite an excellent way of climbing a somewhat remote RMNP mountain via my indicated relaxing line. I highly recommend this chosen path. Upper difficulties are entirely manageable, also. Like many sections, they just require slightly more attention (i.e. loose rock, stay on proven path). Understand health-minded City-side training does certainly assist with completing the hike.

I never utilize, or rely upon, GPS. I contently, humbly made progress towards another goal again by dwindling remaining un-climbed ranked Front Range 13er peaks.

I've climbed Mt. Alice, but it was a long time ago. Your report is making me want to do a repeat.

Great report with wonderful photographs.
Thanks for stirring up some memories of a 1988 hike to mt. Alice with the CMC.
It was a trip lead by Jennifer Sears and was great fun, especially for a relative new commer to the great outdoors of Colorado.

Did this one back in August and really loved the route. We descended boulder-grand pass. A classic peak in the park and one of my favorites. I will definitely be back! Hopefully the smoke haze wasn't too bad.
