What to expect

This trip is rated Vigorous. In the wilderness participants will be carrying their own backpacks with weights of 35 to 40 lbs up a gentle slope over a three mile distance. On peak day you will experience steep and rocky terrain with constant and dramatic elevation gain and/or loss exceeding 3,000′ or more (on peak day full pack not required but optional). In preparation, it is suggested for you to do day hiking with 35 to 40 lbs in the pack you intend to hike with on the trip and make sure your hiking boots are broken in. These practices will help to ensure a safe and successful trip. This is not a beginning backpacking trip. Previous experience is highly recommended.

Daytime temperatures usually range between 60° to 80° F, with evening temperatures dropping into the 40s to 50s. You may encounter freezing temperatures at some of the higher elevations. Afternoon thunderstorms are a distinct possibility so adequate rain gear is important.

Meet your back-country guide

Rusty is an avid outdoors-man.  He has peaked almost 40 of Colorado’s Fourteeners and spent many days on solo backpacking trips through the Rockies as well as backpacked with friends.  Rusty has many years experience training back-country skills in the Collegiate Peaks of Colorado for the staff at A/U Ranches in Buena Vista.  He has led numerous backpacking trips for the Ranches as well as for friends. Rusty maintains a  Wilderness First Aid certificate.  He is a middle-school teacher at Embark Education in Denver and is the Head Coach for the High School Mountain Bike Team which he helped start 4 years ago at the Compass Montessori School in Golden, Co.  Rusty has been a competitive runner most of his life and loves to be outdoors.  The mountains are his favorite place to be.
