Saturday, 3/3/2018, "Boulder Mountain Twofer" Bear Peak & S Boulder Peak

We meet at the Cragmoor trailhead at 7AM. The hike will take us up Shanahan Ridge, Fern Canyon, and then up the S Ridge of Bear Peak. From there, it's an out and back to S Boulder Peak and a descent of the W ridge of Bear Peak and Bear canyon. On this trip you'll get an up close look at the effects of the fire of 2012 and the flood of 2013. This hike has mileage and elevation similar to a lot of 14ers, and can be very challenging in winter. We are likely to encounter icy and snowy conditions on steep rocky trails, so microspikes are required as well as the usual 10 essentails. Hiking poles are useful as well, especially on the steep descents. The trip is estimated to take 7 to 11 hours. There is no potable water on the trip, but water may be available to filter about 2/3 of the way in if it's not frozen.If you're up for a challenging and strenuous winter adventure, please join us and help Bogie get his D leader rating as our Leader in Training!When you register please describe in detail ( in  the comments section) the last 5 hikes/trail runs longer than 7 miles that you have done. Or why do you think you are qualified for this trip.
