Easy stroll from Tincup Pass Date Climbed: Aug 14, 2016
We took our time breaking camp, then Jeeped to Tincup Pass. We crossed the unnamed 12er en route to Fitzpatrick. We took the side trail around the 12er back to the pass. Pretty area, the dogs had a blast!
Started to hike in St. Elmo. Left Tincup Pass Rd at Sawmill Hill. The bushes in that area were awful. Had to do major bushwhacking. It had rained the previous night and the bushes were wet. I got soaking wet and was worried about hypothermia. It was cloudy on the summit. For descent, I followed the northern ridgeline of Fitzpatrick and traversed the slopes of Point 12780 ft to reach Tincup Pass Rd.
