Pikes Peak soared above Colorado Springs as we drove towards the downtown area. As an ultra prominent peak, and one of the eastern most peaks in Colorado, it is easily visible for hundreds of miles on a clear day. The east face of the peak is massive, and the east face route of Pikes Peak, known as the Barr Trail, was our objective this weekend. The weather looked great except for the wind, which fortunately was coming out of the west, meaning the mountain would be our wind-block most of the trip. The mountain had also received about six inches of new snow earlier in the week. Did I mention it was February?...
