Hiking on a trail = no danger? So then you must be safer on a road, right?
+1 = He couldn't be more right
Winter only :) Cycling only March-late October... Mountaineering = awesome cross-training

Always happy to hear about successful summits. How were the conditions? How long did it take?

Conditions were fair. It was not too cold. Low wind and poor visability. It took us four hours from treeline. We went slow and encountered a few false summits (Is that what you call them)?
