Gore range summit names/maps

The greathttp://www.gorerange.info site seems to be mostly defunct now. (The front page works, but most links are broken and login no longer works.)

There were some maps and articles linked there that I used often, but was never smart enough to save the links for. I particularly wish I could access the old Robert Ormes maps with all of the unofficial names of summits and passes. Does anyone know how to access the Ormes maps, ...

Report your 2014 Colorado list completions!

The deadline to be included in this year's completion lists is Oct. 15, 2014. This becomes part of the story of Colorado's history of mountaineering, and I'd like to encourage everyone who's completed a list to submit their name.

If you've finished the CO 14ers, 13ers, etc., or any of the CO Hundred Milestones (Highest 100, 200, etc.), you can submit your name to the Colorado Mountain Club (CMC) for the record books. The lists ...

Meant to post this earlier. Trying to decide on what class 3 peak to do tomorrow in the Indian peak wilderness. Mt Toll via northwest face, Navejo Peak via airplane gulley, or Mt Audubon and Mt Paiute via southeast ridge. I'll be with a beginner who's a fast learner. I've done the easy version of Audubon before and turned back before Paiute when a thunderstorm came and descended down the sketchy saddle btwn them to ...

Gore Range Brush Creek trailhead?

Can I drive my Subaru Outback up the Brush Creek road? I mean, without destroying my car? :-) Is the Brush Creek road worse than the Rock Creek road? That's about my limit for punishing my car.

Roaring River - Log Crossing

Due to the storms/flood last year there is no longer a bridge over the Roaring River. This log crossing is now in place and is less than 25 feet from where the trail meets the river. Hope this helps, for anyone interested in getting to Ypsilon Lake, Spectacle Lakes or Donner or Blitzen Ridge.
