8/04/17 – 8/08/17 | Pingora Summit Series: Mount Elbert (5 Day/4 Night Trip)
Sold : 0
The mountains are calling, and we must go… To the highest peak in the Rockies!
We’re headed to Colorado for a long weekend, and we would love for y’all to join us! Take some time with your friends or family and experience some of the most beautiful landscapes America has to offer, all from the highest point in Colorado.
Despite covering 14,433 feet in elevation, the hike via the Northeast Ridge is relatively easy and safe. From the summit, the views in every direction are breathtaking! Mt. Massive (the second highest mountain in Colorado) dominates the north, while La Plata Peak can be seen looking towards the south. From this perch, you will be standing at the highest point between Mt. Whitney in California, Fairweather Mountain in Canada, and Mont Blanc in France.
