I have been looking at Manitou’s Revenge, and it will be absolutely nuts! The scary thing is, it is a 24 hour cutoff (for 50 miles!), and I'm not even sure that will be enough time. Plus going up and down those trails in the dark. Yikes!
For the transrockies, what is your guys plans the days after? Would you like me to see if I can get you a spot to chill at the hostel? I think it's around $25 per day per person for dorm style but check it out leadvillehostel.com
