seth@LOKIBlack Tyne Peak from Handies  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 21, 2013

I traversed from Handies over to this Peak. A short downclimb of steep loose slaggy boulders gave me pause. The black pointy summit stands out in the distance. I dropped down to the divided Boulder Gulch and across. On the way I noticed a herd of deer around 13,000 feet. Relatively high altitude for deer. I was exhausted when approaching the cornice at the saddle of Handies. After failing to tunnel through I had to traverse to the right onto rock attain an easier cross from snow onto the ridge. My co-worker Austin Sadvar had waited at the saddle and said he thought he heard something below him where I tried to tunnel under neath his knap spot. We descended to Lake City for lunch and on to camp at Uncompaghre. Austin's first fourteener hooded him, but he is not yet willing to go out on the 13er limb..

Boulder Gulch is a great way to access this peak and I highly recommend it. There is no trailhead marker at the bottom of Boulder Gulch but a fairly good trail climbs up this steep drainage. Also climbed Handies and "Campbell Creek Peak" on this hike. Wonderful fall day in the San Juans.

Agreed, Boulder Gulch looks like a great approach. We climbed Half Peak from Square Gulch and it looked gorgeous. Going from Handies was pretty long.
