Conditions were great all the way up!
Crags trailhead, road to trailhead and facilities at parking lot were in excellent condition and not at all crowded. Encountered less than 10 hikers all the way up and back.
Many people think Pikes is an easy hike because you can drive to the top. It is NOT! I found it an excellent challenge! Maybe should have acclimated a day or so before attempting since I drove in from Houston the day before. Learned a big lesson and hope others heed this advice.

Right on. From Houston huh? Hope you are wearing a mask around town. Big surges in Texas and Houston in particular. But, suppose I do not need to tell you that. Mask make a difference, studies show it. Congrats on Pike's!!
