Attention site users! On December 31, 2020, the company whose platform and hosting service we have used to build this site will discontinue their service. That means NO MORE SITE unless immediate action is taken. The ultimate goal will be to have the site rebuilt in another platform. In the interim, we plan to transfer this site to a "static" page where all the information will still be available but we will be unable to administrate the site. The ultimate goal will cost tens of thousands of dollars in professional costs. The immediate "static" solution will still cost several thousand. We are on retirement/SS income and do not have the personal resources to build this site again. To keep this site going, we may have to monetize it in some way such as required membership or allow advertising and you know how annoying that can be. So, if you have survived Covid-19 and still have steady income, please consider a donation in any amount now. For past contributors, thank you so much for doing so!
While the named summit of Epaulet Mtn. on the USGS map shows an elevation of 13,523, another summit just east shows an elevation of 13,530 ft. This summit has been named "Epaulie" and qualifies as the official high point. This is one of the easiest 13er summits you'll ever have the chance to climb. Basically a Class 1 hike from Summit lake that can be shortened even more by parking off the Mt. Evans road directly north of the Epaulet summit. Should be combined with Rosalie Peak for a more "sporting" day.
