MarkDidier3rd time was the charm...  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 28, 2015


Third real attempt. Up Boulder-Grand Pass and down the Hourglass this time around. A beautiful route with plenty of solitude.

Hourglass Ridge with a descent to the steep, bouldery south east. Done in a day from Wild Basin. I agree with Kane. The route feels 2+.

Date Climbed: Jul 9, 2007


Camped solo at Siskin campsite, rounded through Lion Lakes and Snowbank Lake. Gorgeous views and a great enjoyable hike overall. Up Alice, over to Pilot, and descended Boulder Grand Pass. Boulder Grand Pass was snow covered and I wished I had crampons as glissading down could have gotten out of control in a hurry. I hugged the eastside all the way down.
Met two guys at Thunder Lake - they were the only people I saw all day.
All in all, it was a fantastic trip that I would love to take some friends through. Camping the day before afforded me a hike to Ouzel and Bluebird Lake. Hit Ouzel Falls on the way out, as I took the unimproved trail in. There is a trail to get atop Ouzel Falls on the east side.
*Above Snowbank Lake there are a couple drainages to filter water before ascending Alice.

Climbed the interesting Rabbit Hole Couloir (aka S Couloir) on the northeast face. Descended Hourglass Ridge. Long day but well worth it.

Date Climbed: Aug 9, 2009


Enjoyable hike with SP'er brenta. Lion Lakes area is spectacular and deserves return visits. Agree with others that Hourglass ascent route is easier and less exposed than some guidebooks suggest. Boulder-Grand Pass descent is tedious loose scree, but not very long. Took us exactly 12 hours car-to-car. Great day.

argothorSouth Ridge ascent - Hourglass descent  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 26, 2009


Hiked up to Thunder Lake and set up camp. The next morning hiked up past Lake of Many Winds to the Boulder-Grand Pass. Then headed up the relatively gentle southern slopes. After saying hello to some marmots at the summit, headed down the steep northern face and headed across the Hourglass Ridge. Eat lunch in the saddle between Alice and Chiefs Head. Shared the saddle with 6 male Bighorn Sheep. Had planned on doing Chiefs Head as well but the weather wasn't cooperating. So headed down the ridge towards Lion Lakes, but instead of returning to Thunder Lakes via the established trails we headed to the small unnamed lake above Fan Falls, which by the way is quite beautiful. Thought about heading down beside the falls but way too difficult, so we headed down the gully just to the west and then brushcrashed back to Thunder Lake. Hiked out the following day.

The most incredible hike I ever did. The Lion Lakes were incredible. This trip took quite a few hours as it is a lot of miles but will never be forgotten

Date Climbed: Jul 27, 2008


Hiked both peaks after a camp at the North Saint Vrain backcountry campsite. This was one of the most beautiful hikes of my life, passing by two waterfalls (Trio Falls and Fan Falls) and four lakes (Lion Lake Number 1, Lion Lake Number 2, Snowbank Lake, and unnamed lake above Fan Falls).

Hourglass section is a walk. Definitely a nice area, but the climb is not as exciting/exposed as it is described. North face is a fun huff-and-puff scurry. Running shoes were ideal, the trail is far too long to lug along solid boots. 9.5 hours.

Date Climbed: Jul 14, 2007


A nice training run in a beautiful setting. Agree that the standard route up the hourglass has little class 3, though some can be found on the extreme right of the ridge. Boulder grand pass has a snow free passage down it, no gear required.

KaneHourglass Ridge


Huge mountain. Combines well with Chiefs Head. Hourglass isn't much a a 3rd class climb, more like a class 2+. A little messier than I anticipated too. Great Mountain.
