Kim, Shaylee, and I climbed Drift Peak from Mayflower Gulch and Villa Ridge. The weather was good until the end, and the views were good, but the route was only so so. I'm not sure why Roach gives this one a classic rating since it was a bit tedious and not that aesthetic.

Some tricky route-finding getting around the gendarmes near the summit. Glissaded the north face for a quick return to the trailhead. A cold night made for perfect, snowshoe-free snow conditions. Trip report.

Drifted on up this cool peak on V Ridge. Awesome position on the mountain and fun route overall. Love the white granite on the last 200 feet. Saw burly male goat that looked like he had just completed P90X. Climbed with Michelle. Light snow dusting on north slopes, winter she is a comin, lads. There is a metal pole on top. Bring a CO flag and hoist it up. It's good to be in Colorado.

Everything in Leadville was full (hotels) because of the bike race. So I camped at the Boston Mine. Great night under the stars sans tent!!
Hiked up Mayflower, Gold (kinda by accident) and Drift. Really enjoyed Drift Peak.
Spent 45 minutes on the summit warming in the sun. Had the mountain completely by myself...and on a Saturday!?

From the Blue Lakes TH climbed Fletcher and traversed the ridge. Tried to stay on the ridge. Didn't feel like a Class V downclimb for 20 ft. Descended 200 feet and climbed one of the loose gullies.

Date Climbed: Jun 30, 2013


Passed on the snow filled NE notch (probably the easiest way) and climbed the ridge to the right (NW) of the notch. On the descent, got too far west onto some terrain where every single rock up to refrigerator size was loose (not fun). Re-climbed and got back on the correct ridge down.

Classic route up Drift peak...We did it starting at 3am and watched the sunrise from the summit. Quandry Peak fit nicely into the sunrise.

Stuck to the ridge until the technical pitch, then dropped off to the east side and back up via one of the east cols. Great day with Fletcher and Drift to myself.

Fun solo from Boston Mine up to Villa Ridge and the summit. Wonderful views and beautiful day, in spite of the winds. I think it's always windy on that west ridge...

Fun route. It's pretty cool how the snow forms along the ridge into a nice, fine point.

2nd time up the peak, this time there was good visibility. Climbed with Ben, and we skied from off of Villa Ridge before the last nob to the flat section of the ridge. Good test of AT equipment.

Not much fun if you have a hard time finding the East couloir from Fletcher. I ended up climbing the towers in between. If you do Fletcher and Drift together you might have a hard time finding a good route down- I had to bushwhack through a lot of willows all the way to the dam.
