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.

Surprised to have these peaks to ourselves in such a popular area on such a fantastic weather day! Three peaks, bomber views, unbeatable weather...and back down in Breckenridge with plenty of time to enjoy lunch at the brewery. Life is good!

There were some tired feet in our group. Need to go back and ski this after the resort closes.

This was my last peak as part of the Ten Mile traverse as I had already done Peak 10. Sweet traverse with a nice contrast between exposed scrambling and a gentle stroll.

I like this approach because you really don't feel like you are climbing through a ski area. After summitting I headed down the north ridge toward Peak 8.

A very social hike with a large group - we celebrated on top of Peak 9 because it was the FINAL Colorado 13er for one of us. Continued on to Peak 8 before heading back to the TH for more celebration.

Summited around 1 p.m. as part of the Tenmile Traverse. Weather was deteriorating, so I spent about 30 seconds on the summit.

Also climbed 9/27/08 from Crystal and Peak 10. Picked our way down Peak 10's loose north ridge, then up the ridgeline to the summit of 9.

Skied up this peak from the Beaver Run resort on a quiet weekeday. Took me just over 3 hours from the base to the peak - one of my sturdier skinning efforts. Descended into the Windows via the NE face of the peak on pretty much bulletproof slab. I'm glad I learned to ski on the east coast!

Part of the Tenmile Traverse... what a long but fun day! Mount Royal through Peak 10. 16.5 miles, 8100' gain, 15 hours.

This one was my mental crux... dropping off Peak 8 was demoralizing.

By this point on the Tenmile Traverse, my legs were mush. I don't think I remember much from Peaks 8-10.... Man that was a good hike.

I started the morning by climbing Father Dyers Class 3 Northeast Ridge. From there I traversed over Crystal and Peak 10 before climbing Peak 9's South Ridge. I returned to the Spruce Creek TH via the Wheeler Trail.



It made for an exciting tour of the area.

After summiting Peak 10 by it's East Ridge route, rather than descending by the road to the large meadow between the peaks, I scrambled down 10' North ridge until I found the prominant snowfield along the Northeast Face (conditions of this are visible from Breckenridge). A steep glissade and I dropped 500 feet, before reaching the boulders at the snowfield's base. Then I traversed back toward the sadlle and easily ascended Peak 9. The descent was to the Southeast, intersecting the excellent Wheeler Trail. It would be easy to continue north from Peak 9 to Peak 8 for those desiring amother summit.

Climbed and skied this great peak several times. It's a really nice, mellow ski. Access via the ski resort is great.
