ColoradoScottRoute Climbed: Southeast Ridge w/ Loveland Mountain Date Climbed: June 27, 1993  Sucess!

This is anice high country tour, all abve timberline and a loop without any steps being re-traced. My dog Logan and I parked along the road near the Sweet Home Mine. From the TH, youhead WSW to intersect the east ridge of Loveland just below 13,000 feet. I encountered some snowfields on this day, so having an ice axe was nice, although trekking poles would have worked, since they were not steep. The east ridge then climbs at a steady grade up to the summit of Loveland. Strong climbers can easily do this section in less than two hours. From Loveland, turn right and hike northwest along the ridge for almost a mile to Buckskin's summit. Almost from the true summit, I was able to glassade to NE face down toward the mass of cars near Kite Lake, with Logan bouncing thru the snow as happy as a dog can be! To avoid some of the crowds at Kite Lake, and make my return trip shorter, below 12,400' I swung to the southeast to intersect the road about halfway between Kite Lake and where I had left my car.

Started at Buckskin Joe mine at around 10750' to get 3K' vertical, ascended gentle s.e. slope of Loveland, and joined ridge. Descended via n.e. slopes down to Kite Lake road. Willows were brutal in Buckskin Gulch. See trip report.

We were shocked by the lack of snow on this hike. A gentle summit ridge and a wonderful glissade cemented this as a wonderful hike

From the Sweet Home mine I went straight up the east face of Loveland on tundra and low angle snow and then crossed the ridge to both Buckskin summits. Great views of Democrat, Bross, and Arkansas up there.

We left the Buckskin Creek Road near Buckskin Joe Mine at around 10,800'. Bushwhacked up the north-facing slopes to our left to meet up with Loveland Mountain's long southeast ridge, meeting up with a Jeep road that accelerated our progress. Climbed open slopes on the ridge for 2.5 miles to Loveland's summit, and then continued the traverse to Buckskin. Glissaded down Buckskin's southeast slopes to eventually reach the road.
