From that same thread, here's Gaspipe's list of CO passes he's ridden and his ratings:

I've always liked the rating system that came out of that thread. I wish more people would use it.

On Gaspipes rating system what does the T, W, & N stand for?? It's probably obvious, but I don't see it. Thanks

Nice work Geek! It takes me a couple days to acclimate anymore. My nose gets dried out and sometimes you have to eat a little dust. Back at camp some moisturizing decongestant spray helps open my head back up to take in what little oxygen there is.
Blistex helps soothe dry lips, I forgot it last year and while waiting out a storm at Tincup some butter worked in a pinch.
The San Juans will spoil you for anywhere else.

Thanks for the link. After reading through it all, and being from Mn., I would love a heads up of what I'm riding into and I think Gaspipes take on Jays idea is right on. You can over think it to death. I like it.

there seemed to be a bit of discussion on the topic, with no outcome. i'd think the best case scenario would be to finish it up, and post it as a sticky in the ride reports forum, and ask people to link to the stick when rating something. then, it'll get the most coverage. i'm going to post over there and revive the discussion, see what happens.

Not to contradict, but as a pilot as well as a rider - O2 is only required above 13,500 after 30 minutes (last I checked), or above 14,500 for everyone. We regularly are cleared to fly at 12,000 without O2.

Hmmm. Might want to check the FAR's again, making us look bad.
I already posted it but, it's 91.211.
http://ecfr.gpoaccess.gov/cgi/t/text...0.1.3.10.3.7.6

Oh also unless we talk part 121 or 135, in which case he's a little bit right with the 10,000.
Also Geek's a Canuck and he's probably going off Canadian regs.

Thanks Geek.

Enough great info here to get myself in more trouble....

My dumb ass trying to cross Ophir in October. Skeered myself.
But it was great adventure.

Thanks for doing this Geek

We spent the better part of a week riding the San Jauns the first week of July last year just kind of winging it. It was our first trip to Colorado to ride dirt bikes (other trips were chasing whitewater) and a report like this would have been a HUGE help.

I can't wait for July
