raspritzNW Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 17, 2017
The standard summer route is the NW ridge. Either start hiking at the lower Baldy Road parking lot (10,600') or drive the rough 4.1-mile 4WD road (high-clearance vehicles only) to the relay antennas at 12,574' (about half of topos show a road to 13,000'; that is not true). Hike the obvious class 2 ridgeline trail past a series of false summits to the true summit at 13,684'. Great views of Breckenridge, Quandary Peak, and beyond to Mount Holy Cross. Important: booties are a must for dogs!

Date Climbed: Jul 4, 2017


for many years, I thought this peak was Silverheels when looking at it from the Frisco area. I learned I was wrong when I climbed Silverheels in 2013. This is a short hike from Boreas Pass which was good as I did not start very early. several false summits to drain morale but I good day to spend a fourth of July

Perfect day out. Hiked with my friend Sam. We were the only people on the Mountain all day. Saw some Mountain Goats, and got a good view from the summit. There is around three false summits.

3rd time up (2/8/15), early morning flurries broke to a sunny warm day. Broken trail pretty much the whole way to the ridge, and the ridge is mostly blown clear of snow with just a few small patches. Stick to the ridge, the east side has some cornices and loaded slopes.
4th time up (12/26/16), with Rachael. Windy and cold ridge but weather improved on the descent.

This was my first time on this peak and was disillusioned by all the false summits. Now I know better!

chicagotransplantSeptember or December?  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Dec 1, 2012


Very dry, almost depressingly so. One could drive all the way to the Iowa Mill (and beyond) still. Some very shallow snow from Mill to treeline (under 6") and then its mostly dry all the way to the summit from that point, no gaitors today.

Great day, lots of snow, I hiked on the ridge and got whiteout on the summit because of approaching snowstorm. Great view of Tenmile Mountain Range!
