COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — Members of a Colorado Springs climbing club are making their annual New Year's Eve trek up Pikes Peak in cold and snowy conditions.

AdAmAn Club members began the climb Sunday in sunny weather and plan to reach the summit in time to set off their annual fireworks display.

The group, founded in 1922, is named after its practice of adding a man to its ranks each year.
