Our group
Preparing for the climb

Dr. Liz was to have a birthday and on that birthday she wanted to bag a peak that had bested her multiple times previous. Samh heard her call and along with Dr. Liz’s man – singletrackm1nd and WOTboy a plan was decided. Load mountain bikes into Dr. Liz’s rig, drive to the Brackett Creek trailhead, ride to the pass, lock up the bicycles, climb Ross Peak, consume cheeseburgers, descend, and cycle back to the trailhead.

The crew made great time cycling through the intense heat of the afternoon and climbing into what appeared to be an oncoming thunderstorm. Atop the summit the storm abated, missing the content climbers as they signed the summit register, ate cheeseburgers, and chatted about the excellent quality of the class III and IV route they’d just conquered.

    I like the Goran Kropp approach – bike to the trailhead!
