chicagotransplantSouth Ribs  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 11, 2014


Nice scrambling to be had up the south ribs. Take an unmarked spur trail near the base (abandonded road). You can see it cutting across the peak from the west parking lot. Then head up any of the rocky ribs, also visible from the parking lot, for some solid scrambly goodness. Also climbed 8660 and 7814 in the park.

Date Climbed: Jun 27, 2011


My wife and I took the Elk Range Trail to an old, somewhat grown over, road to reach a saddle on the southern aspect. We proceeded north from the saddle to a little scramble to reach the summit. There is a geological survey marker at the summit and a summit log is below it, underneath some rocks, in a plastic jar. We headed down to the northwest to avoid entering private property.

Date Climbed: Jun 2, 2010


I could see this peak from my house growing up and always wanted to climb it - so this summer I did! I hiked in along the Travois Trail for about 3 miles and then went off trail up the steepening face to the base of the cliffs. A short bit of fun scrambling and route finding puts you at the top! Happy there is no trail on this peak. This hike was a first step in my new project to hike all of the peaks you can see from the site of our future home on Lookout Mountain!

Started at the Centennial Cone Rd. trailhead on the western side of Centennial Cone Park. I followed the Elk Range Trail to the place on the trail were there is a log fence. At that point I headed south towards the northwest rib of Centennial Cone, which I then followed up to the summit avoiding to more difficult sections by staying just to the north of the actual rib. The was about 6 inches of snow on the ground which made the going a little difficult, especially on the steeper section because I could not tell if the snow was covering slick rock or detritus. But I still made pretty good time. From the trailhead to the summit it only took a little over an hour.

After spending about 20 minutes on the summit taking in the views and eating a little lunch I headed back to the trail the same way I came up. Once at the trail I headed north just a short way to a gate. Instead of going through the gate, here I followed the fence to the west and then north before trekking cross country to the northwest and following a ridge northwest up towards to summit of 8660. I crossed a fence that hadn't been maintained for awhile and was pretty much laying on the ground. I eventually came to an old mining road just short of the summit, and followed it the rest of the way to the summit of 8660. Didn't stay long since I figured I was on private property. I headed back down the road and passed an old Caterpillar tractor, a shed and an old truck and continued down the old road on the southern slope of 8660, switchbacking my way down to the main Elk Range Trail. Then it was back to the trailhead.

On a bright, sunny September day, we enjoyed this summit, making a loop from the western entrance. The ladybugs were a little insane in quantity. This summit makes a fantastic lunch spot. Partners: Dave's CMC outing.
