Mr. Rogers 13,391'
1 Dec 2002 - by Steve Bonowski
Rogers was a weather/wind substitute for yesterday's
CMC climb of Mt. Warren. Rogers is the first main peak
above the Mt. Evans Road on the way to Summit Lake.
Warren is about 1/4 mile further along the ridge,
albeit slightly lower. This was not a real technically
oriented climb; we walked the road much of the way.
However, this was a trainer for the upcoming
Kilimanjaro outing. So, our conditioners are designed
more for aerobic workout at altitude than for technical
challenge. Views are very impressive once one gets up
on the ridge. The road itself has good views altho
somewhat lesser. Round trip mileage to Rogers using
the road route from Echo Lake is about 9 miles with
3,400'+ of elevation gain. BeauJos in I. Springs
provided pleasant apres-climb for our group of 6
(there Kevin, how's that?).
