Mt. of the Holy Cross - North Ridge. Class 2. 12miles RT. 5,600FT total gain


Let me just say, I am super excited for this one!!!

Mt. of the Holy Cross has been on the top of my list for years....something about the 5,600 FT of elevation gain with 1000ft gain on the descent.

It's going to be a treat and potentially a long fun day!

The plan is to hike it all in one hit so not too complicated.

I will most likely be sleeping somewhere near the trail head but if people want to carpool from Denver we can try and arrange that too.

Disclaimer:
By attending this hike, you assume all responsibility for your safety and agree that the event host, organizer, Peak Baggers, and Meetup are in no way liable in the event of your injury or death. Mountaineering in Colorado can be very dangerous, and many people have died on the 14ers. Weather, terrain, and other people can put you in a situation where your knowledge and experience will be vital. If you are new to these peaks, I urge you to pick up a book on mountaineering safety and make sure your basic navigation skills (map+compass, not only GPS) are up-to-par and you can rely on them in a tough situation. Just because a crowd of people can march to the summit of Quandary Peak on a summer Saturday, it doesnt mean that they are all safe. Altitude sickness, dehydration, and fast-building storms are the most common problems. Please be in shape and self-sufficient. Although this is a group activity, you are responsible for yourself. Everyone is to be self-sufficient - i.e. responsible for own camping gear, clothing, food, water, other drinks, etc. No one from Peak Baggers is a professional guide and there will be no guiding on the mountain by the group.
