|bartellini||Powell with the Wife|
Date Climbed: Jul 1, 2006
|Thought I could try out the wife on this summit attempt.|
Sadly, she was only able to make the top of Kneeknocker pass.
Very commendable attempt for her though. Next year I will attempt again. Beautiful mountain.

|We wandered out onto the West Face from below the col between Powell & Peak C, and by traversing back and forth on ledge systems we were able to find a non roped route up the face.|

|Did this in a day from Piney Lake. My first foray into the Gores. I always mean to go there more, but so far I've only been there thrice.|

|What an awesome mountain. I couldn't believe the views from up there. Also, did I mention NO crowds.|
See my Trip Report for details.

|I loved this mountain....You guys will make a Gore Range convert out of me yet! My only regret is that it's taken me 5 years of climbing in CO before I finally trekked into the Gores. We made an alpine start and were the first people to summit yesterday. The Gores look like the Tenmile Range on crack! What a gorgeous, rugged, lush green locale!|

|My favorite Colorado 13-er, and one of the best of all Colorado's mountains! This is a WONDERFUL climb, and the Gore Range view from the summit is amazing--you barely get a "peek" at what's there if you only drive through Vail on the freeway. Climbed with Aaron and Mark (actually, met them on the mountain, as we had to take two vehicles).|
Doesn't anyone climb this mountain? Amazing!

|Mount Powell is an incredible mountian. It is rare the a range's highpoint so well embodies the ranges character. The roundabout route starting from the Piney River Valley, ascending towards Knee Knocker Pass, crossing to the mountains east side, ascending a long snow coulior, before finishing on the gently serated summit offers almost everything a colorado mountaineer could desire. My dogs Sopris and Raymond accompanied me on this amazing summit and we thouroughly enjoyed ourselves. |
P.S. Beware the funky cornices on the mountains south side above Knee Knocker Pass.
