chicagotransplantSW Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Dec 9, 2017


5th ascent, this time the SW ridge via Mayflower Hill. Considering the dry start to Colorado's ski season, the traverse below the NW face of Pacific was deeper than expected and very time consuming. Unconsolidated snow between talus resulted in many knee to waist deep postholes between the rocks. Luckily only one small knee bruise, as those talus traps can really beat up your legs! I felt fortunate to have avoided worse.

I was offered a job in Seattle last month. Told my boss I could not do it. He replied, "Better title, more money, more power, you ok giving that up?" I respectfully declined. Today's solo joy on the SW ridge, and every other excellent Colorado day are the reasons why. Lots of snow and postholing, but loved it. Totally alone with superb weather. Fun easy route.

Headed over the ridge to the drainage north of Mayflower almost right away, and crossed it before it got too cliffy on the north side. Nice view of Pacific. Trip report.

Great day in Tenmiles, I used the Mercury skilift in Breckenridge, stashed my skis in the forest, then hiked Pk10, Crystal, Pk10 and Pk9. Awesome whole day trip with some loose rock on the north ridge of Pk10.
