On Sat, Feb 27, I led a snowshoe hike for Kirks for a strong young couple from Denver. At 10 a.m. we met at Kirks and decided on a route to Loch Vale and beyond. During our 6-hour snowshoe we had spectacularly warm, sunny weather with hardly any wind. We made great time and made it all the way to Andrews Glacier, which lies between Otis Peak and Taylor Peak. We passed some awesome alpine climbing along the way including Spearhead.
Looking up at the warm rock made me excited for climbing season. Also looking forward to guiding Longs Peak again this summer.
