Thunderstorms come into play, as well as wind potentially blowing all night long. Risk is probably low as far as thunderstorms, but the wind can absolutely keep you up all night flapping the rain fly. An additional factor in camping above treeline is the impact left if you are camping on tundra. Tundra takes years, centuries even depending on the extent of damage to restore itself.chiggiebeeeese wrote: ↑Wed Jan 29, 2020 1:42 pmThanks for the advice guys! Belford looks good as does Holy Cross. This may be a dumb question (almost assuredly is), but isn't it unwise to camp above treeline in case of a thunderstorm? The only other peaks i have camped on we have always camped below treeline.
Note that Holy Cross has designed campsites you must stay at in the East Cross Creek drainage.
