Pikes Peak Climbing Notes

Brad from UNITED STATES writes:

Dec 20, 2017
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.
