I'm doing a 3-day backpacking trip in RMNP to the Mount Dunraven area Friday, Aug. 23 - Sunday, Aug. 25. Those who had planned on joining me had to drop out due to a change of plans. However, I'm still doing the trip, and would like to open this to others interested. Here are the details:
day 1: hike from the Dunraven TH on the North Fork Trail to the Lost Lake campsite in RMNP. 9.5 miles, 3,400' gain
day 2: tentative plan is to climb "Dundicking" and Dunraven, and then descend by 6 alpine lakes back to the campsite: 6 miles, 2,500' gain. We can vary this itinerary based on your interests.
day 3: hike back out the same way we hiked in

If you're interested, please PM me, and I can send more details. My primary goals are "Dundicking" and Dunraven, and beyond that I'm flexible if you want a somewhat different itinerary. Since the campsite is in RMNP, we are required to follow backcountry regulations, including keeping our food in bear canisters. Only cost is sharing the reservation cost ($30/# of people) and sharing the cost of gas.
