Pikes Peak Climbing Notes

Halfbomb from UNITED STATES writes:

I ran/hiked Crags, Devil's Playground trails in an attempt to summit yesterday. Temperature was 8° to start but wasn't bad. Parked at the gate then snowshoed to Crags Trailhead. I had to switch to microspikes shortly after, due to bare spots!

The trail was mostly packed with some post holing. The Devil's Playground trail was difficult to find above treeline, no markings! I made it to the auto road but the wind gusts picked up substantially to a point it blew me off my feet! Turned back a mile from summiting! Total bummer. Two attempts now, no summit.

The wind blown ground snow was piercing my face until back below the treeline. First attempt was up Barr several weeks ago. 2 Mike's from summit lost the trail again! Not marked well. Are there any cairns along the trail?
