7/12 Pikes Peak Pumpkin Loop

Post by MtnBart01 » Jul 03 2016 7:02 pm

Short notice because of forecasts having to be in line, but I'm doing the pumpkin loop again only this time it's all on trail. :y: If your looking for a scenic death march mostly above 10000' I'm departing Marcroft Hall Chipita Park, Co 2 am.
Approx. 39 miles 10000'+AEG. Water available to filter Barr camp and Creek before the Crags trailhead. Not sure if Summit building will be open for their water fountains, but the water tastes terrible so don't bother. Must be in good shape and ready for a long day at altitude estimating 13-16 hours. Bailouts could be back down Heizer. Hitching a ride down toll Rd. from the top, or Crags trailhead.

2 mile road walk to Heizer trail. 7 miles to Barr trail on Heizer. 7.8 on Barr trail to Summit. Approx. 6.5 down Crags trail and 16 miles on Ring the Peak ending in Mt. Esther
to Marcroft Hall

@joebartels
I'm happy to say the Mesa house finally belongs to someone else.

Darn, I'll just miss you, although 39 miles and 10,000 feet could be a bit much at the moment. I'm headed Ouray next week for a family reunion, aiming for Sneffels on the 14th.

Have fun!

Might change this to Tuesday 7/12. May meet up with Hazers in the area to hit another Peak or two 7/6. Will change date after confirmation. Gives anyone another week to think about what a good time will be had. Probably will give me another week to stretch out my altitude lungs after two weeks in sea level humidity hell.
