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!
Note: If using the Loveland Pass USGS quad, it should be noted that the elevation mark of 13,195 ft. on the south end of the peak is not the actual summit/high point. You will need to follow the ridge crest NE some to reach the highest point. This can be seen if you examine the USGS map carefully where there is a closed 200 foot contour. This gives an extrapolated elevation for Hagar Mountain of 13,220 ft. Google earth once again does a poor job of showing this. In fact, GE shows the highest point of elevation for Hagar to be near the 13,195 ft. marker.
Hagar Mountain is an easily accessed summit on the Continental Divide NNW of the Loveland Ski area and SW of The Citadel. The trailhead we propose is accessible by passenger car. Most of the hike is easy Class 2 with a brief summit ridge finish that most rate as Class 2+ but could involve a Class 3 move or so depending on how you choose to navigate the summit ridge. On this site, we have sequenced Hagar with UN13,010 (Golden Bear) for an easy half day romp.
