|I won't wait for the end of construction, of what is clearly a 4-star page! Nice work, Jon.|

Thank you much for the vote. Hope the finished product meets your expectations. Have you been back to the Gores this summer since your juant on Peak C?

No I never made it back to the Gores. I was kind of hoping to get there over Labor Day - my wife is working this weekend - but I'm over here in Singapore on a business trip instead. Hopefully we will get to hike together some day.

|Thank you for voting Barry. When are you going to move to Colorado so you can do a Gore Range summit as a day hike? I think you would like Keller. It was a lot more fun then I expected. |

|I completely missed this Jon, my bad. Awesome page.|

Thanks for voting. You would like this mountain... it's fun. By the way I'm jealous of your Bellview success... I'v some nice photos for when you get around to doing a page on it.
P.S. Interested in Demming or West Demming on the cheap? Or Q if you want something more commiting?

|I went to your profile page to look up Keller and read that you had an unsucessful attempt of Belleview earlier this season due to bad weather. You and I really think alike, its weird. Belleview was a great mountain, of course. Now I could have done without the loose rock and muddy conditions but all and all the long south ridge worked out well. Dog friendly, just wear a helmet. Roach rated it a class 2+ hike from West Maroon Pass, well I think he is wrong...more like class 3.|
The next gew weeks will be difficult to get out. My wife is scheduled to go to Florida with friends so I will have to stay home with the kiddos while she is away. Now if that hurricane comes Floridas way next weds through Sunday, she won't go. Then I may be able to get out. I'll keep you posted.

Thanks for the vote. I reccomend this route. You would like it.

|Great page! Just one correction - I just was up on the SW Ridge via Bighorn Creek this past weekend and it goes at 3rd class with some exposure. Your map calls it out as Class 2 (the green route). When I download my pics I will add a couple to your page, but just thought I'd toss that out there in case anyone was looking at the route. You can stay below the crest to avoid the most difficult and exposed scramlbing, but there are some ribs that still involve some 3rd class even off the crest. Thanks!|

|Another 10/10 Gore Range page. The excellent beta got us up this in brutal winter conditions.|

|COEngineer||Needs update maybe|
|I followed the described route and was going along fine until I came to the crux. It looks to me like there has been a recent rock slide and it did not look safe to me. Unfortunately, I did not take any pics. BTW, "bushwacking" along the alternate route is an understatement. The bushes are 10 feet high and so thick you can't see your feet - one of my feet slipped down between boulders and I spun around as I fell. I was lucky to walk away without any major sprains.|

|JonBradford||Re: Needs update maybe|
|Sorry to hear Keller didn't work out for you. The crux you described is that the notch beyond the false summit? If so were you on the ridge crest or lower on the south side? It has been a little while since I have been up there so I am trying to visualize where the difficulties you encountered are. Wish you had a photo :) happy climbing.|
