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.
"Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks. Great success shooting the knife into the piano. The woodworms are so bad and eat hell out of all furniture that you can always claim the woodworms did it."
