Bradley, If you took any photos, post 'em up. Would love to see what you encountered. Sounds like a good trip.

I made it back - thanks for the tips! The trails were kinda iffy above the treeline, so I had to do a little climbing.

Hey Bradley, I second everything that Debbie and Jill said. They know their mountain. It's also important to be prepared for one hell of a good time.

High Wind Warnings this weekend... along the I-25 corridor, they're predicting 50-60 mph winds, so think about what that might be up on the peak!  Sunday won't be as windy, but will have more cloud cover.  Jill is right, bring traction, and winter layers.  Check in at Barr Camp so they know your whereabouts and timing.  They can also give more beta on conditions above camp.

Bring traction , regardless of the conditions on lower Barr which I'm sure are not any indication of what ice and snow lie in store above 10,000+ I'd expect it to be windy and very chilly

Thinking about hiking up Pikes Peak this weekend via Barr Trail - think the conditions will be fine?

Comment by Debbie Rhuby on November 9, 2010 at 5:58pm
I've never "run" Pikes Peak, don't desire to. But I've hiked it from the east (Barr) and the west (Crags) well over 50, maybe closer to 100 times in the last 20 years. I used to have the annual highway pass when it was $40 for a single person. I would be the first car at the gate, beeline it to the summit, downclimb to the A-frame and back up again, home in time for lunch. It was good altitude training. Now I mostly train (hike/jog with a pack) on the lower half of the mountain and "work" the races with EPCSAR. I play my kazoo for you guys at the Cirque each year! We either entertain & motivate or severely annoy all the hypoxic & staggering runners as they go by!!

@ Nick: Incline times are great. This mountain can be addictive. Love to see you run Ascent/Marathon, because your Incline times indicate you may be among the leaders--Certainly sub 3 hr and possibly sub 2:30.
@ Tim: Thanks! You had a really good time last year. I admire all who try and really admire those who finish. You're close to wave 1 qualilfier. Hope you do it again.
