Pikes Peak Climbing Notes

<br/>Went up from Crags and planned to descend on Barr but encountered very high winds above Devil’s Playground around 10am so decided to turn back as my son was having a hard time keeping from going airborne. One site said 70mph gusts at that time. It was sunny blue skies and a beautiful day, so such high winds were a surprise. It was perfectly calm below the tree line though so still a good day.
