Foxy Long Bottoms

Snow on the ridge and the crux made it spicey enough to keep me on my toes. The ridge is neat. The blue paint arrows were annoying to see in the wilderness.

Since I climbed with Aaron Johnson, I can't improve on his descriptions, only agree with them. Fun scrambling, as you can see from the pictures he attached.

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.

Dan, Mike and I climbed the east slopes to the summit then skied the Silver Couloir. Perfect day, great people on the mountain, amazing skiing. Classic.

Date Climbed: May 18, 2008


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!

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.

chicagotransplantBuffalo-Sacred Buffalo  Sucess!
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.
