Why?

Because we want to BBQ on a mountain and complain about generics okay?

What else?

Our good friend Kris Nova will be leading a small expedition down the basin of Evans, up the West Slopes of Mount Bierstadt, traverse the sawtooth over to Evans to join the gang.

The route can be found here.

This is not a day hike, this is a serious (and possibly deadly) climb. All are welcome, but we expect serious and skilled climbers only.

We will meet in the Evans parking lot at 2am to start the journey, and ideally end up in the parking lot by 3pm to join the rest of the gang who should be nice and settled by that point!

If you would like to join the expedition please email or tweet Kris and let her know!
