Approached via Piney Lake. Camped at small basin below Kneeknocker Pass and hit the west ridge from the gully just southwest of Kneeknocker Pass. East ascent thereafter paralleling the SW couloir. Beautiful views and a stroll down memory lane from when I descended Black Creek

Ripsaw ridge with Rachael. Climbed up C via the SW couloir, exited early to avoid some loose rock, then traversed Ripsaw to Peak G. Gorgeous day!

Couldn't wait to climb Peak C ever since I first saw it! Hiked in from the Piney Ranch, beautiful day. The mtn goat family followed me around tree line for awhile. Really fun route from treeline to summit. Amazing views, climbed solo, didn't see anyone all day except for within a mile of the Ranch.

Climbed West Ridge Direct as part of traverse from Peak C to Peak E. Chased off of Peak E by static electricity buildup. AMAZING DAY!

Climbed with Craig. Perfect snow in early July (2011 was a heavy snow year). I really enjoyed the scrambling on the ridge. One of my favorite peaks in the Gore, if not Colorado.

No surprise, ripper333 and I made our own line of ascent and found the most difficult path up the west face. Mostly class 4 with a few class 5 moves sprinkled in. 1st peak of Ripsaw traverse. 18 hour day.

Climbed with Steve, great line up a great peak. I was glad to finally get this one, I have been staring at it from Vail for years! I definitely count this among the top peaks in the Gore.

Although it is a long hike into the Gore Range area, it is well worth the effort for the scenery and views that you get.

Climbed with the "usual suspects" and really enjoyed relaxing in the fields of wildflowers.

With Eric H. Woke up to a gorgeous morning at treeline after doing Powell the day before. Headed up the SW Face route (Cooper). Super fun time, not a cloud in sight. Loved not seeing a soul above treeline for two days.

Climbed the south face route described in Dave Cooper's Colorado Snow Climbs. Brought a rope & pro as recommended but conditions warranted neither. Descended standard SW couloir route and thought it was much more asthetic than our ascent route.

hiked solo up to the waterfall and camped in basin right below C-peak - climbed up to summit via couloir early in the morning and climbed down another snowfilled couloir to basin below Kneeknocker Pass

Great day. Solo all the way. Beautiful morning. Made it to first basin by 9am. Its a good idea to go to up through the furthest back couloir. It puts you at a short straight traverse for the main section. made summit by 1030. then sat on my butt and slid all the way down both couloirs. took about 10min to get back to lower basin. Awesome climb, c prime looks intense.

One of Colorado's great peaks. Pretty steep sustained class 3 scrambling to the top with some routefinding.
