Yale on MLK Day (1/21)

Postby SurfNTurf » Tue Jan 15, 2013 11:13 am

EDIT: Based on the early response, shifting this from Bel/Ox to Yale. I'll probably try Bel/Ox or Huron on Friday if anyone is interested in that date instead.

I'm off work for MLK Day and the weather looks too nice to stay in Denver. Anyone want to tackle the Bel/Ox combo? I could also be talked into anything that's a new winter 14er for me, but would prefer Bel/Ox while the TH (likely) remains accessible.

I'd be down to do Yale or Belford/Oxford on 1/21, but the combo might be a bit time crunched. I could leave Sun after around 9pm or Mon morning. I'm in Boulder and don't have a car, but could meet in Denver if I can get a ride. I'd love to get in a Winter 14er this weekend! Let me know. -Grant 6304793864

Might be interested...what route were you thinking of doing?

I am interested if it is not getting too crowded. Golden is convenient for me as is Denver. I would not be able to leave until Monday morning but I can leave early and drive/meet whereever /pitch on gas. (303)524-4729 Justin. Thanks!

I'd love to go, and I'd be willing to pitch in my share of gas money, if someone wouldn't mind picking me up. I'm in Arvada, at the moment -

it wouldn't be too hard to meet up at the Sheridan/I-70 exit early on Mon.

I'll fix some breakfast burritos and coffee for us to take, as well!

(maybe PM me, if that all doesn't sound too bad, I always appreciate the rides)

Looks like a fun group going. Looking forward to it. Where is everyone meeting and what time does everyone want to start tomorrow?

I apologize for being a little out of touch, I was in the hills Friday and Saturday as well. Mt. Yale is still on for tomorrow. I was planning on the East Ridge, but after reading recent conditions reports and seeing the snow in the Sawatch firsthand, it's my opinion the standard Denny Creek route is currently the easier objective. I'm open to the East Ridge if that's what the group overwhelmingly decides.

Let's plan to meet at the parking lot for a 7 a.m. start? We'd need to shove off earlier for the East Ridge if we shift to that route.

I'm working 11-7 today, so I'll be a little hard to reach again. I'll respond to any PMs/posts tonight. I'll be driving up in the morning and probably have a full car but I'll update if that changes.

Also, please be sure to carry lots of layers and enough to cover all exposed skin. It's supposed to be an unseasonably warm day, but the moderate wind will negate that.
