Climb Lewis Mountain (12,740 ft)

Saturday, July 27, 8:00 am Register by Email

This beautiful hike starts from Columbus Basin in the La Platas. The road is pretty rough to get there. We will climb to the ridge on the trail used by the Kennebec race and then proceed clockwise on the ridge, climbing Lewis Peak and continuing around. The route has considerable exposure and some lower Class 3 moves. The descent can be a bit brushy in order to regain the road and hike back to the cars.
Limit 12. Carpool $6. 4WD/HC. No dogs.
