Grizzly and Cupid from Loveland Pass
We started this day in January of 2015 with the intention of combining Grizzly and Cupid together, but the weather had other plans.
The wind was brutal which is common for Loveland Pass. The wind was much stronger than we anticipated with around 28 mph sustained winds and over 40+ mph gusts tossing us around like rag dolls the entire day. We pushed our way up “Cupid” before we came to our senses and decided to abandon the Grizzly combo.
The slog back to the car was endless and the wind was relentless. We mushed on anyway.
