HC2

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.
