Kuss Peak

Dave Reed and I met in Golden at 4 am. We drove to Mosquito Pass and north along a road at its first intersection. The intersecting road was gated. We parked and began hiking at 6:06 am. We followed the road northeast, then abandoned it and started hiking directly towards the summit.

Mosquito Peak

We descended Kuss Peak's north ridge and climbed Mosquito Peak's south ridge. The terrain was easy second class talus. There was an incredible inversion; clouds spread far to the east and west of the Mosquito Range.

Treasurevault Mountain

We descended Mosquito Peak's north ridge and climbed Treasurevault Mountain's south ridge. I reached the summit at 6:56 am.

Mount Tweto

We descended Treasurevault Mountain's north ridge and ascended Mount Tweto's long, southwest ridge. I got to the summit at 7:41 am. There was a plaque near the summit honoring Mr. Tweto.

Mount Evans

We descended Mount Tweto's southwest ridge. We reclimbed Treasurevault Mountain. I reached the summit at 8:43 am. We descended Treasurevault Mountain's south ridge and followed the road, arriving back at my Jeep at 9:21 am. We drove back to Mosquito Pass and slightly south along Mount Evans' north ridge. We continued hiking along its long ridge, reached the summit and returned to the Jeep at 11:18 am.

London Mountain

We drove to the base of London Mountain's west ridge. We hiked up the west ridge. This was the most interesting hiking of the day. We got snowed on briefly, reached the summit, finding a broken glass jar and descended our ascent route reaching the Jeep at 12:18 pm.
