I don’t know about you, but I feel like I’ve seen an increase in news stories lately of hikers needing to be rescued in their attempt to summit a 14er. Too often they haven’t done the appropriate research, aren’t wearing the right clothing, or didn’t bring the appropriate supplies. So, I’ve teamed up with some of my favorite mountain babes on Instagram to tell you what we wear and what we pack when we set out to conquer 14ers.
For our second day of 14er summiting this season, we decided to do Mt. Elbert. Mt Elbert is Colorado’s highest peak at 14, 433 feet above sea level. It took 9.5 miles of hiking with 4,700 feet of elevation gain and was totally worth it.
