Date Climbed: Apr 25, 2015


April 24

Shaylee, Kessler, Kimberly, and I snowshoed to Francies Cabin in the late evening; not starting until dark. The half moon was surprisingly light, but we still used headlamps. We made it in just over an hour.

April 25

The original plan was to have Kessler climb Peak 10 with me, but he had hit his head at school the day before and had a big bump, so decided not to risk it.

I climbed the east ridge alone and made a fast glissade off the southeast face. It was a good glissade, but there were a few cliff bands to avoid. From the summit, I could see a storm approaching, so I didn't want to stick around. I got back to the hut just as the snowstorm hit. We packed up and snowshoes through the heavy snow falling, but it cleared up as we descended the mountain.

chicagotransplantSoutheast Face Ski  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 12, 2015


Originally planned on skiing Crystal, but the clouds came out and I didn't think it would soften so decided to go for Peak 10 instead and ski more south facing slopes that had a little more sun before it went away. Still pretty choppy, but it was better than I thought it would be.

Great day in Tenmiles, I used the Mercury skilift in Breckenridge, stashed my skis in the forest, then hiked Pk10, Crystal, Pk10 and Pk9. Awesome whole day trip with some loose rock on the north ridge of Pk10.

Beautiful fall day. I was amazed how green the Crystal Lakes basin still was for late September. A dusting of snow also covered parts of the mountains.

Date Climbed: Sep 10, 2011


Nice loop hike. The ridge to Father Dyer was the best part, but coming down off of Father Dyer was tedious. Had the dog with me - otherwise I probably would have come back over Mt Helen. (class3 ridge, I hear.)

We intended to make a loop including Peak 9, but the weather wasn't too friendly, so we took the weather window we had and made the most of it. Strong winds, snow, low visability...but we made the summit and took some "we miss you!" pictures for Janet in Thailand. Partners: Carol, Elissa & Laraine.

Date Climbed: Jan 23, 2009


Peaks 10's east ridge route was a little more serious than I'd anticipated in winter. There were a couple of short sections exposed to avalanche danger but luckily conditions were very good. The final short section before the summit was the most interesting.

Date Climbed: Jan 23, 2009


hiked the east ridge on a stormy january day. final section of the ridge was thrilling and solid enough to force me to kick steps! could have done without the wind blowing in our faces during the ascent, oh well.

GeorgeJamesThe Tenmile Traverse  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 14, 2008


Over from Peak Nine and up the talus slope on the north face, which had some new snow that helped to hold the shifty rocks in place, then down the east ridge and road, and onto the ski slopes.

Took me and my group about twelve and a half hours total to get from the trailhead in Frisco to the Breck Brewery, on a steady but never hurried pace. I didn't notice anyone else up on top of the range all day long.

A great way to punctuate the summer hiking season.
