Combined Middle with Dunn and Dolores that made for a nice 7 hour loop from Fish Creek. The west ridge of Middle is a bit tricky with snow. The ridge run down to the Dolores saddle was fun, pretty exposed in spots on the north side.
This was my third attempt! In May 2009 I was chased off twice by electrical weather, the second time just minutes from the summit. This time I completed the entire loop over Dunn, Middle and Dolores. Middle Peak's west ridge was more interesting than expected with the fresh snow - reportedly class 2+ when dry.
