Went up from Piney Creek. Foggy day and a fair amount of routefinding. No views to speak of.

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.
