Horrible mosquitos on the approach and running from clouds on the descent (E ridge). First time in the Gores! Only a few other people on the ridge.

Date Climbed: Jun 22, 2013
There is a trail up N. Rock Creek that takes off at the mine tailings. I did not find the trail until I came down. I went up to the basin with the small lake south of the summit, hiked NW into the next basin and then NE to the summit. This route is just Class 2.

Date Climbed: Sep 8, 2012


First Gore attempt/summit (except for Buffalo/Sacred Buffalo several weeks ago). Thought I'd see no one, but the parking lot was full. Still, saw only 5 other hikers and 2 hunters. Thought I'd see animals, but saw practically nothing until 3 moose visited the parking lot before I left. Great ridge! The fun doesn't really start until the second false summit.

I climbed Keller in September 2004 while working in Kremmling. This was only weeks before moving to Craig.

What a beautiful hike! Although coming back along the ridge came as close to getting by lightning as we ever have, or want to be. Bailed down into the valley where we were meet with some nice snowdrifts.

alpine345boss hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 18, 2006


Walked up to the Boss mine, then up to the E ridge, the back the E ridge. The only place I've seen all white columbine is in the talus up high on this peak. Another peak all to my self except for a moose down low...

Date Climbed: Jul 21, 2010


HORRENDOUS mosquitoes on the approach. MAN EATING spiders on the ridge. AMAZING scrambling on the crest. Running from thunderstorms on the descent. Sounds like the typical Gore day eh?

Keller was great, but you better be in shape if you plan to pack in to upper Slate Lake after this one. The class 3 ridge on Keller is a lot of fun. I like those Gores.

Combined Keller with N. Traverse, Grand Traverse, and 12485. Up Bighorn Creek and down Deluge Lake trails with car shuttle. A long day of scrambling! See TR.

SarahThompsonEast Ridge up, South Slopes down  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 8, 2008


The east ridge was an easy 3rd class scramble. Descended a loose gully to the south and just when the bushwhacking started getting bad, we found a fairly good trail that led all the way back to the mine! This trail is a good ways above the valley floor.

Date Climbed: Jun 28, 2008


It was a perfect day. I got to the trailhead at 3am and started at 4am. It was a bushwhack up to the ridge and the 3rd class route finding was a blast. I spent some time on the summit learning my favorite Colorado range, then decided to glissade 1100 vertical feet down the SE face of Keller into the Rock Creek drainage. It was a grueling bushwhack back to Boss Mine. Since my first visit I've been intrigued by the Gore Range, and today I obtained my first Gore Range summit. I'm hooked!

A good, long push up the east ridge, on our second attempt (a week after the first). One of the best days I've ever had in the mountains.

Date Climbed: Sep 9, 2007


Hiked the south ridge route from Bighorn Creek with Gurlyclimber. Capped a nice long weekend of Gore climbing! Fun exposed 3rd class if you stay on the ridge crest, some of it can be bypassed on the east if not to your liking.

Hiked with chicagotransplant. Looks like the Indian Peaks maybe taking a back seat to the Gores for me for a while. Loved the place.

Date Climbed: Aug 4, 2007


Kurt, Chris and I climbed the East Ridge and descended by the south slopes. Views from the summit are outstanding. The crux is something else. We were scouting this as a possible Summit Seniors Mtn Goat hike. We would lose a lot of friends. We saw two other climbers following us.
