A Pikes Peak tradition since 1922, climbers traverse the icy slopes of Pikes Peak to provide a spectacular view for spectators in the Pikes Peak region. At the stroke of midnight, enjoy a spectacular fireworks display, which on a clear night, can be seen for hundreds of miles along the Front Range of the Colorado Rockies and eastern plains.
