Frequent Pikes Peak hiker Craig Burbank (see blog item below this one) reports that he hasn't seen a winter this harsh on Pikes Peak since he's lived here. The combination of frigid temperatures, lots of snow and lots of wind have created extreme conditions on the mountain. "I don't think anyone has made it past Barr Camp since it started snowing this winter," he says. Burbank made it to 12,600 feet Sunday. A consummate record-keeper, he says that in one particularly cold, dark canyon, it was about 20 degrees below zero.
