Route Climbed: Southeast Ridge over Loveland Mountain Date Climbed: January 17, 2004
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.
