Tried Climbing Kit Carson Peak on Monday the 12 of July 2010. Started at Climb at 5:30am. Got up about 4 miles just where the sun started to break over the mountains. And then all hell broke loose. We had black clouds of mosquitoes that I have never seen before on any 14er in Colorado. OMG!!! IT was insane. You need a Bees mask to climb this 14er seriously! We had to turn around because we were eating them, and I currently have 10 bites just on my face and thats just the start. Great Climb just have to wait through mosquitoes alley. Not sure how far the mosquitoes would be up the mountain. Will be doing this one again soon just with a Mask. Happy climbing!
