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.

Date Climbed: Apr 1, 2012
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.

theREALCarpeDMPk 10--Crystal--Father Dyer loop  Sucess!
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.

SarahThompsonEast Ridge  Sucess!
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.

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.

DharmaBum1984Tenmile Traverse  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 1, 2007


Last peak of the Tenmile Traverse. Summited in sketchy weather at 2 p.m., exactly 9 hrs after leaving the car in Frisco.

Also climbed on 9/27/07 with friends from Blue River. Three of us climbed Crystal from Spruce Creek, then 2 of us went on to Peak 10 and 9 while the other guy drove up from Breck to pick us up at the Pk. 9 restaurant. A nice tour de 10.

TorstenWNo Trail: Straight Up The Ridges  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 21, 2004


Started 11am on foot from the doors of the Great Divide lodge at around 10300ft, and went straight up the peak 10 runs and series of ridges all the way to the top. The ridges can be fairly steep and lengthy at times. Stopped for suntanning on one of the magnificent alpine meadows on the way up. No trails up the ridges until near the top. Arrived at the summit about 4pm, and then realized what I had just done! All alone at the very small pyramidal top of a fairly high mountain. On top of that, after I got comfortable with being up there, I spied the ridge to Crystal peak and the very beautiful upper Crystal lakes. Well, one only lives once, so off I went. Didn't make it to the summit of Crystal peak fortunately, common sense overcame me. Made it back down to town about 10pm on a moonless night, after leaving the lakes trail to get back to the lodge quicker. Problem is that I had to cut straight through unchartered forest. With no light to boot, makes for interesting situations. Luckily I have a very good sense of direction, and came out of the forest right at the edge of the ski area. A very invigorating trip...
