Do you have a picture of Ormes from Colo. Springs? I've never been able to identify the peak from the plains.

Because Ormes sits back a bit from the edge of the Rampart Range it is not visible from most of Colorado Springs. It can be seen from the very southwest part of the city. It is quite obvious when driving north on 8th Street - once you pass Brookside and crest a hill it is in plain view above the Garden of the Gods and the Scar. It is also visible from unincorporated El Paso County to the northeast and east of the Air Force Academy. Other than those two areas it is blocked by Blodgett Peak, Point 9,491 and/or Lone Pine.

I found a trail that nearly circles the base of Ormes. If you take the 2 track near the end of 302 to the left it narrows to one track (little used) and you can continue to the trail that comes up from the west. You cross a small saddle and get a view to the west from a small rock outcrop. You could also circumnavigate Ormes by following the Devils Kitchen trail down and to the left.
Windy as heck except right on the summit.
