Red Mountain in 2009
DESCRIPTION: Climbing Red Mountain in July
PEAK ELEVATION: 5500' / 1,676m
DATE: 7/5/2009
Its Sunday, and therefore is a hike day. Today is Red Mountain, a favorite off the I-90 West ski area exit. Temps were a bit warm, so no William or Buddy today. Mark Davis did join me (Matthew) though, and we made good time to the summit. Round trip was around 4 hours 30 minutes, with a the top scramble taking quite a bit of time. There is still quite a bit a snow on the northern slopes, and a lot in the Commonwealth basin. I rate myself a C for the hike.
