Kit Carson Mountain & Challenger Peak



Sangre de Cristo Range, Colorado
February 2, 2013

These peaks never get old; so far all four of my ascents have been memorable. This was my 2nd winter ascent of both Kit Carson and Challenger, but the first time I've been able to utilize Kit Carson Avenue to climb both on the same winter trip. The peaks were plastered with a heavy coating of rime ice like nothing I have ever seen before. An absolutely awesome day out in the hills.
