Long shadows after an early start from the Halfmoon Trailhead taking the classic route! A tough 14er as it requires a 6 mile hike to the top and a 970 foot decline that you have to regain after Halfmoon Pass. More difficult on the return as you have a nice little climb.
After hiking for a couple hours, you get a nice look at the peak of Holy Cross.
Nice big cairn (trail marker) as you prepare to make the final climb to the top.
