A gain of around 1400' in about 2.75 miles.
Note the very determined look - we are now committed.
Our old friend Sentinel Point in center.
We topped it in an arduous ascent less than two weeks ago - 6/27.
PP summit peaking out on right.
Little Pikes Peak on right; Big PP ahead.
OMG - a band of Big Horn Sheep right across our trail.
Mostly ewes - I did not notice any large rams.
These awesome young ladies started from The Crags TH.
Final rock pile ahead.
Summit House in sight.
We made the summit plateau in about 1.5 hrs - decent time.
Buying at least one is pretty much obligatory. :)
A pair of gnarly mountaineers!
Cogs in the middle of the track is how the train works - though currently down for upgrades.
