chicagotransplantL-K Traverse  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 11, 2011

Great peak, admired it for years from a far and it was great to finally climb it! One of my favorite peaks for sure, great scrambling on solid rock. Traversed over to K afterwards, more involved than we expected especially the last 150' to the summit. Climbed with Scot, Brian, Steve and David.

Date Climbed: Sep 4, 2011
Came in from the Brush Creek trailhead for a little shorter pack-in, only about 8.5 miles? Enough of a trail around the lake to get to just above the lower falls with little difficulty. Photo in Cooper's book helped us identify the route up to the SW ridge approach. Once up to the saddle - this became a really entertaining peak. Nice solid scrambling. Never used a rope and didn't really feel the need for one. So-called "knife edge" is short & sweet & straddling is unnecessary. Nice climbing on the final stretch and a one-person summit block. You can get some really great alpine, ascent-like photos that make it look really spectacular & more exposed than it really is. If it didn't require such a long backpack, we'd do it again!

Peak L by its SW ridge is a true classic. One of my favorite 13ers. Went on to Peaks K, J & P afterwards. Awesome day!

Probably the toughest one day hike I have ever done. Long hike in to Slate Lake (beautiful) followed by some tough climbing to the summit. I dont recall following the knife edge but there was plenty of steep class 3. Used a guide by Joe Kramarsic that was probably never very widely available that I found in an outdoor store in Frisco. Sadly, the book has long since fallen apart. No idea if the book is still available. Just a great area.

One of the best climbs in CO. The rock was so amazing and the climbing so superb, that I would repeat it in a heartbeat, even with the long approach.

Probably the best Gore peak I've been on. A good bit of exposure on that knife edge and some steep climbing once past it.

Climbed this one with Jim/Colonelpyat. Peak L lived up to a big reputation. I was amazed at how solid the rock was on this peak. One of the best days climbing in my life in one of the best places I have ever been in my life. I will go back for Peak K and do this one again.
