HAB is right! But the views were awesome, weren't they? What did you think of the drop off the divide?
There were a lot of HOLY SHIT moments in both respects! I'd rather ride Chalk Creek Pass the other direction next time
We've done an out and back from Hancock on the CDT - didn't make it all the way to Garfield. Coming down from the Pass was interesting both ways. And dropping down into Boss Lake from above Monarch? Really cool - but hard!
