Pikes Peak Summit Log (#14161)

Climbed Pike's via the Barr Trail and took the Cog Railroad down (I know, pretty wimpy way back down). I was suprised how few people there were. Of course, lots of fat people buying T-shirts and eating donuts and nachos on the summit. I thought allowing 6 hours would be plenty, but I only made it with 1/2 hour to spare. I am in absolute awe of the guys who race up it in 2 1/2 hours (or less) in the race every August.
