Mount of the Holy Cross & Holy Cross Ridge



Sawatch Range, Colorado
December 22 - 24, 2012

Start: Bottom of Tigiwon Road (8.3 miles from summer TH)
Total RT Stats: 28.7 miles & 8,650 feet
Backpacking: 19.1 miles & 3,650 feet
Climbing: 9.6 miles & 5,000 feet

Six of us ushered in the calender winter 2012-2013 season by climbing Mount of the Holy Cross over the course of a 3 day, 2 night backpack during which Ken Nolan, our highly esteemed leader, completed the Sawatch 14er grid! The weather was somewhat challenging and unpleasant but that didn't deter anyone from making the summit, and some of us from adding on a bonus summit, Holy Cross Ridge.
