Date Climbed: Jan 11, 2007


Good, God! Sustained 20mph winds with gusts up around 45-48mph up on the ridge. Air temps in the mid 20's. Don't want to know what the wind chill was. I got knocked down a few times, on a snow slope that was very alarming!
Hiked this with 2 other friends. 7.5 hours. The cirque is amazing!

ashlandbusCame in from Weston Pass  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 17, 2006


Climbed coming from Weston Pass. Gained ~1700 ft. in first 1.25 mi from TH to Ptarmigan Peak ~13,800. Continued along ridge to Horsehoe. Didn't see a soul all day. Caught some elk that had two predators stalking (Mtn. Lion?). Scrambled 3 miles of rock falls on the way back down. Bad idea. There was literally no trail to follow from Weston Pass, but all is over treeline, so peaks were simple to find. 99% free of snow.

Some drifts still on the road but still an enjoyable hike. The wind really picked up once on top of the ridge but died down a bit on the summit. I'd been wanting to do this one for a while. I'll have to come back and do the couloir sometime.

Date Climbed: May 13, 2006


Shanahan96 and I climbed Boudoir Couloir, great climb. It was pretty windy up top so we didn't complete the ridge traverse we had hoped, but a good day none the less. Next time I'm bringing my skis!

Definitely a memorable trip. Had a great time with Joe, John and Stuart. The winds were ferocious, but the blowing snow and chilly temperatures kept us moving. And it wasn't even officially winter for another 12 hours! :-)

Summitted with SP'ers Brad Snider and John Clements after numbing climb through vicious wind. (John's summit log phrasing is testimony to standard 'climbers' understatement' and the fact that, well, he's tougher than me.) Typing this I still have some residual numbness in the tips of my fingers. Thanks to John and Brad for pushing upward. SP'er Denali20K took an equally wise decision and turned back near the saddle because of the wind. He (Stuart) was the real hero of the day, waiting at the cars to see us safely down and meeting us there with Christmas cookies and beer that he'd brought up.

Snowshoed to the saddle, tapped Peerless, booted up to the summit after Brad Snider. High winds, cloudy, not much view. Didn't think we were going to make it but Brad pressed on. NOTICE: Summit register removed, cap broken.

Great views and not many people on this one. The namesake cirque is spectacular. It looks even better with snow, so do it on a nice winter or spring day when the snow is consolidated, otherwise it will turn into a postholing nightmare. See my trip report.

Due to some avalanche areas me and asphazell had to do some off trail climbing with our snowshoes on, the summit log had not been signed since November

ColoradoScottRoute Climbed: Northest Ridge. Date Climbed: July 14, 1991  Sucess!


This was a solo hike with my sweet dog Logan. Following moderate 4WD roads all of the way from the TH to the NE ridge saddle just south of Peeless Mtn, the remainder of the ridge route was a nice "hands in the pockets" hike. We climbed Peerless on the return, but didn't continue to Sheridan, since I had climbed that previously.

A nice, easy hike to the summit. Great views of the Sawatch! Also a chance to preview some nice couloirs in the cirque.
