DharmaBum1984Full Moon Hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 15, 2008


Hiked from Buffalo Cabin. Unplanned last minute ascent, sketchy partners, off route most of the way, in the dark. Much easier after the moon came up. Spent a long, long time on the summit. Must ski the Silver next year.

Date Climbed: Sep 14, 1994


I got within 500 vertical feet on a couple of occasions only to turn back due to the group or weather conditions. Finally summitted on a really clear day. Truely memorable.

Snowshoed up std route, snowboarded down Silver Couloir from the summit. Condis not bad up top but got wetter and heavier all the way down. Huge debris field at bottom - pretty scary. Would have kicked butt in better snow. Tough uphill slog exit. 4:45 RT

Very nice hike! Fun scramble over to the Sacred Buffalo. Had seen this mountain so many times from the highway - it was finally nice to be on the summit.

joegrimShort and steep  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 11, 2007


When I saw the length of this trail, I thought that it wouldn't be too hard despite the elevation gain; well it was a lot harder than I thought. I have done much longer hikes with a good eal more elevation gain, but nothing this steep for this long. It was the hardest 6 mile hike of my life! The weather was pretty good though, although it was cool (53) and breezy (32 mph) at the top. A great hike with awesome views! I never guessed that the Gore Range on the back side of the mountain was so impressive!

Could not think of a better way to celebrate the 4th then climb a peak. Very impressive summit. Really enjoyed this steep hike. Would do again.

Date Climbed: Jun 19, 2007


Snow almost gone, great trainer for the season. Almost did the scramble but opted not to because I started later in the day. Great views, loved the bouldering, as usual enjoyed the company of a trio of mountain goats at the top.

Date Climbed: Jun 17, 2007


Still a little snow in the trees just before treeline, left the trail early and cut up some talus. This was actually cairned, I guess its the official unofficial offseason route!

The scramble over to "Sacred Buffalo" is definitely the pay-off, the rest of the hike is pretty much just a talus walk.

Great ski. Not sure if I wandered over and actually bagged the summit.

Date Climbed: Jul 17, 2003


This was supposed to be an "easy" day - a break from 14ers. A little harder than I expected but a good hike with a bit of cairn rebuilding at the top.

High temperatures quickly drained our energy. Five hours and seven miles later, we were whipped!

But never fear, a lunch of huge juicy hamburgers, fries, and onion rings at the Dam Brewery in Silverthorne worked wonders.

Date Climbed: May 17, 1999


Hiked this awesome hill with my friend from Alabama, Tim Allen in late Spring of 1999 on a simply gorgeous Summit County day. Great mountain with outstanding views. I could be mistaken, but I do not think the Buffalo Mountain Trail was finished when we attempted the ascent. Killer hike.

Went up the "old trail" and came down the new trail through the boulder field to the right of the old trail. Didn't make it over to scared buffalo this time. Going down was tougher than the hike up - but still a great hike.

skiitswitchRoute Climbed: Buffalo Mountain Trail, down along Sacred Buffalo Cliffs Date Climbed: July 4, 2005  Sucess!


Picked a gorgeous day to finally hit the top - I've been to treeline about 4 times in the snow, but due to avalanche conditions, this was my first summit trip. The route was steep, but well maintained through the boulderfields and the summit was spectacular. It was a serious class 3 scramble over to sacred buffalo, with a bit of class 4 downclimbing - completed gorgeous and nice to get away from the July 4 crowds. I had heard from several people of a trail down from Sacred Buffalo, but lost it early and bushwhacked the rest of the way down - seriously difficult, as I kept getting cliffed out. Great trip though.
