Ascent Trip Report

This is Challenger and Kit Carson combination hike. We have hike up to the Challenger first, then Kit Carson, and come back to Challenger route. Need helmet at the Kit Carson avenue. Snow condition was favor for us, not too soft and not icy, we were lucky. View was gorgeous from the summit.

The gps file include both Challenger and Kit Carson.
