The five day difficult expeditions occur in some of Colorado’s most beautiful wilderness settings. The team will trek to an alpine lake, establish a base camp, and attempt to summit one of the local 12,000 foot peaks. The team will cover 15 miles over three days at elevation, bonding as a team and overcoming physical and personal barriers.
