Trip report 02/23/2017
Tom, Ted, myself and Pesta arrived at the trail head in snow flurries and wind strong enough to numb the fingers but it cleared soon after got started. Some wind throughout the day, especially at passes and coming out of canyons. We did find a passage through the gates of purgatory so now we know it can be done. Totals were 8.1 miles and 2510 feet gain.
