Description:

A Pikes Peak Region tradition since 1922, the Pikes Peak AdAmAn Club is a group of mountaineers who climb the icy slopes of Barr Trail on the east face of world famous Pikes Peak each Dec. 30 and 31 and, at midnight on New Year's Eve, ignite a fireworks display from the summit to usher in the New Year. The club is dedicated to the memory of the original "Frozen Five," Ed Morath, Fred Morath, Fred Barr, Willis Magee and Harry Standley, who decided that only one new member could be added to the club each year, hence the name: AdAmAn (add a man). A climbing party of 30 members and guests leave the trailhead of Barr Trail on Dec. 30, with an overnight stay at Barr Camp. On Dec. 31, they flash mirrors from timberline to friends and families in the Colorado Springs area and then finish the ascent to the summit. The climb from timberline (12,000 feet) to the 14,110-foot summit is often accomplished on icy and snowswept slopes with wind chills of -50 degrees.
