I'm looking for some advice from those of you who have ascended Pike's Peak. It's always been on my list to do. I'm just getting started on planning and I'm looking at July of next year. I think I'll be starting off in Manitou Springs. Any and all advice is welcome, please be as specific as you can. (equipment, clothing, gearing, where to get water, need for money, cool stuff to see/do, etc.). Thanks.
