Re: Will be in CO 8/28 - 9/9

At this point it looks like our 4-wheel group here in Crested Butte should be doing Reno Divide/Upper Italian/Flag Mountain on 8/29 if you have any interest in coming over and joining us. You could then take Taylor Pass back to Aspen, or Cottonwood Pass to Buena Vista and then back from there. Really long day unless you came over to CB the night before (it's about 2- hours from Aspen to CB if you come over McClure and Kebler Passes).

Will be in Aspen over Labor Day myself. Can you please send info on the Summit?

Sounds fun!

Thanks, might be able to make it. All depends on where we are on that Sunday night. Don't have reservations for that night. First night in Carbondale as of now is the 29th. Was thinking of doing Medano pass on the way up.

Looks like that trail takes 3 to 5 hours according to the Wells book. That Reno Divide does not look too friendly.

Let me know if you end up doing Medano. I assume you'd do that on the 27th? or 28th?

Upper Italian will definitely get your attention but it looks much worse than it actually is. Here's a picture of me just before hitting the really sketchy part:

Will be the 28th or 29th. Won't know for definite until we see where we are on those days. Always put a day buffer on the way up in case something comes up.
