Traverse of all three Geissler tops: up via Linkins Lk, and down the Lost Man Loop trail. Most recently with Katie, 15. Favourite short but ridge-y route in the area.

DiapensiaLoop from Linkins Lake  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 30, 2011
Went up from Linkins Lake. Spectacular wildflowers up from the lake. Went over the 13186 peak to the main west peak at 13301. It was getting late and weather was brewing so we skipped East Pk and went straight down to Independence Lake. Got back to the car as the hail started.

Hiked up to W summit with my son to acclimate for Mt Elbert. Most of the area was still covered in snow. When we got near Independence L, decided to head straight for the saddle, then up to the top. Clouds looked ominous, so we didn't stay long, and didn't try E Geissler. Great views in every direction, and didn't see a soul til we got back to the car.

Lots of snow for this time of the year, gaiters and crampons helped in steep parts off-trail.

Solo climb, started at the upper trailhead for the Lost Man loop and headed to the saddle between the peaks. Then up the West peak, traversed to the East peak and descended to "Lost Man Pass", some easy 3rd class if you stay on the ridges. From there I traversed high to get to the PT 13001 saddle and up the ridge. This ridge has 2 major steps, but you can avoid them on grassy ledges/gullies on the left to keep the route class 2+. It started to rain at 11.45am, right when I got back to the car, perfect timing I guess.

My dog Savannah and I climbed to Lost Man Pass (Great trail to the top) and the to Geissler East by the East Ridge. Our descent took us down the west ridge to the saddle with West Geissler. Because she was with me we had to avoid some of the rock steps on the descent by staying slight below the left side of the ridge. Climbing the SW ridge direct would probably make for a fine Class 3 or Class 2+ route. At the saddle there was still the remains of last year's cornice (no axe neede though). As we started to climb up the steeper NE ridge of West Geissler, the clouds that had been building started to rain. We turned around about 100' above the saddle as I didn't want to get caught on steep wet granite. The shower really started in about ten minutes later and from the saddle we did the high tundra bench traverse over to Linkins Lake. The area just above Linkins have one of the most beautiful displays of wildflowers I have ever seen. No camera though.

It was a beautiful day in a gorgeous area. No problems getting up and we took a more interesting route for our descent, keeping north of the fall line on the east ridge --a bit more scrambling and a little more exposure. All in all, an easy climb with fabulous views!

Climbed the East and West summits with my buddy Wilson. Beautiful day for a nice hike, both ridges from the saddle were fun! Great glissade. We should have been skiing like the other 15-20 people who were up in the Roaring Fork basin cruising around.

A beautiful day. Many people mulling about near the trailhead but quickily found myself alone the further up I went. Two older people were also at the top.

Hiked down to Lost man lake and out via Lost Man trail and was able to catch a ride back up to where my truck was parked. Great day!!

I hiked to Lost Man pass and then up the East Ridge of East Geissler. I continued down its West Ridge to the East Ridge of West Geissler and to its summit. The West summit is also a ranked 13er and see very few ascents. The summit register was placed there over 2.5 years ago and contains only about 21 names.



Great views of the surrounding area and fun climbing on very stable rock.
