For a supposedly easy 14er this was brutal, mostly thanks to the weather. The summit ridge is narrow and the wind was vicious. There were really strong gusts. It hailed and it snowed, so even in July be prepared for harsh conditions!! That said the views were beautiful. We came up from the Leadville side. The burgers afterwards at the Golden Burro cafe in Leadville were delicious even if the young waitress was a little spacy!
Advice: Ignore where Roach tells you to park. Following his advice adds almost 3/4 mile each way. Everyone, including us, parked much much closer to where the trail starts up, cutting out a pointless trek across flat ground. Well, amost everyone...one Roach die-hard was actually parked down the road.
