It might not be a big peak, but worth it for the simple fact that I didn't see another soul all day.

Head up and over The Needles and then over to Dark. Wanted to head up McGregor, put an injured Achilles started acting up so called it a day. Wonderful seclusion on a beautiful November day.

There was a significant amount of snow on the summit. Actually, I preferred having the snow on the ascent. It gave it an even more remote feeling.

tomlaurenSouth Slopes Route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 21, 2008


Hiked the South Slopes Route from the Cow Creek Trailhead. The off-trail hiking was easier than expected - not many downed trees and the forest was generally not very dense. The summit consists of three separate high-points separated by less than 0.1 miles - the farthest (northwestern) summit is the tallest, perhaps by only 10 feet. A summit register existed at both the lowest (southeastern) summit as well as the highest summit.

Nice hike; a bit steep, but not too tough.

If someone is looking for a summit far away from the crowds in Rocky Mountain National Park this one will fill the bill.
Total ascents = 2.

KieferEast ridge/SE shoulder  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 22, 2007


Some of the toughest snowshoing I've ever done. Crossed two gullies, some minor scrambling to gain the SE shoulder (left the main trail too early). The summit and plateau was deep wet snow making for slow movement. Ditched the shoes close to the summit and rock-hopped on exposed fins and logs. Long and physically exhaustive day. Great weather though!
