The Mountain is really steep. If you are not in shape, I suggest taking the cog or driving up. If you are not used to the high altitude, Please be careful and stay hydrated. As all ways, Have fun.

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.

4/4 trip up Crags to Pikes Peak... Bring some traction device for your shoes, the approach trail was very icy. Lots of postholg if you veer off the trail.
