New Peak and Event Name!
Squaw Peak was officially renamed Kyhv Peak on September 8, 2022 by the US Department of Interior. The word Kyhv comes from the Ute word meaning mountain. Kyhv is pronounced like “hive” but with a “K” sound. The event organizers support renaming of the peak. The course is 100% the same as in 2020 and 2022 and will include the summit of Kyhv Peak (elevation 7,862).
Registration will open in late October 2022
Registration will close a few days before the event
