theREALCarpeDMwith Grays south ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 24, 2017


I parked at a snowbank shortly before the mine (should be passable within days - some 4wds made it through already). I hiked the road into Horseshoe Basin much further than I needed to (I was unnecessarily worried about some willows). I curled back around to catch the east ridge which took me to Ruby's false (NE) summit and walked over to Ruby. Then, I climbed up Grays south ridge, taking full advantage of the scrambling opportunities. The rock was pretty solid. I returned down Grays gentle SE ridge. Beautiful day!

Sarah SimonVia Cooper Mountain from Peru Creek  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 26, 2014

Sarah Simon

Easy cruise on packed snow along Peru Creek drainage. Left the trail for some trail-breaking to gain the ridge of Cooper Mountain. Ridge to the summit of Cooper seemed a bit interminable. :) Waltzed in the wind over to the summit of Ruby Mountain, then down some chossy, loose ridge back into the basin. Saw a herd of bighorn ewes! What lovely and graceful creatures! Dinner at Czech restaurant in Georgetown afterward. With Senad and Otina.

Thank goodness almost everyone likes to climb the higher, more well-known mountains, because this allowed me to enjoy some Colorado solitude at the summit of Ruby.

shknbkeNorth ridge from Grays  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 8, 2009


Enjoyed a fine traverse between Grays and Ruby. This traverse is no harder than class 3 skirting a couple buttresses on the west side. North ridge of Ruby is a quick stroll from the saddle.

Solo in the fog with neighboring Cooper via the SW ridge. Road was not open yet, had to hike from the gate at Montezuma Road. SW Ridge up Cooper was completely dry.

Had a nice day on the mountain. There was a chopper in the area looking like it was searching. I hope no one got hurt.

I saw two choppers on this hike as well! Or...maybe it was the same chopper twice...

Date Climbed: Jul 7, 1991


My son and I had a relatively benign hike and of course we had the mountain to ourselves. It was not enough for the day so we headed over to Cooper Mountain. Interestingly it was covered with butterflies. Apparently they liked this particular summit to find potential mates.

Hiked up the Eastern Ridge. Slid down the snow patch on the South Eastern face. Gorgeous views from the summit and nice to have the entire Horseshoe basin to ourselves for the whole day, we didn't see another soul.

Wife, dog and I. Headed up from Horseshoe Basin to Grays. We were headed for Edwards, but wife didn't feel good, so she headed back. Dog and I descended south ridge of Grays and went over to Ruby instead.
