East Ridge, descent via South Slopes Date Climbed: Jul 8, 2006
My wife and I climbed Keller with a couple of friends via its East Ridge on a soggy day. The wet rock made this third-class scramble more interesting. We descended Keller's south slopes, passing Lake 11,660 before entering upper North Rock Creek's meadows. From there we enjoyed a breathtaking bushwhack back to the trailhead -- one of the most beautiful hikes I've been on! The Gore Range is definitely something special, and I'm looking forward to coming back. A trip report is available here.
