I will be staying at the Leadville Hostel through
Friday. Anybody want to do some training runs in the
Sawatch range at 14,000 ft?
Today was my first full day at altitude after flying
from sea level yesterday, so I wanted just a short
climb. I climbed the SE face of Evans (class 3) from
Summit Lake, traversing the ridge that's part of the
Snave route. I tried going up the class 4 coulior to
the summit but chickened out about 100 ft. from the
summit and had to downclimb back to the shelf and
summit from the west. It wasn't too hard a move, a 10
ft. chimney at about 60 deg., but I was climbing alone
so I was being careful. I got an altitude headache,
but that should not be a problem in a day or 2 and I
can do longer climbs.
Anyway my plans are
6/27-29 Leadville, climb 14ers
6/30-7/2 Sawyer Mt. run, stay with Mark Dorion
7/3-6 camp at Winfield, climb 14ers
7/7 Leadville marathon
7/10 or 11 climb Sneffels
I will have email at the hostel on 7th st, let me know
