The Hogback (6,584 ft.)

4 December, 2010: This was just a little easy one on an out-and-back on the way down to NM. Exit 34 (Aguilar) from I-25, then take CR 60 about 7 mi. east. The summit is the highest point on a volcanic ridge. Easy Class 2 or 2+ climbing on a broken catwalk for the whole length of the summit ridge. Another instant quad, as it's the only summit on the eponymous quad, and my first summit in Las Animas County. (Fishers Peak will have to wait for another day...)

Long life and many peaks!
