Date Climbed: Aug 14, 2011


Found there to be some sections greater than class 4 in difficulty near the midpoint of the traverse. All in all a fun route with great views. Link it up using the Bighorn and Deluge drainaged, then car shuttle it.

What an amazing route! The scrambling encountered on the Grand Traverse is so solid and quality from start to finish. My roommate Dan and I had perfect September weather without a could in the sky, we only had a little bit of wind to deal with. Top 5 climbs.

Dark clouds convinced me to skip the summit of Grand Traverse Peak and climb down to Bighorn Valley

Dark clouds turned out to be a hail/rain storm from Vail all the way to Denver

Crux was actually really not that hard - the 2nd gendarme after the crux offered a more thrilling downclimb

I believe we established a new route up a series of gulleys, cliffs, and talus slopes. This took us a bit longer than anticipated and we hit the ridge about 15 minutes to the right of North Traverse. Fortunately, we had great weather. The route-finding was my favorite part of this arduous journey.

Somehow ended up climbing up a gully that topped out about 15 mins from N. Traverse, so we ended up repeating a part of the traverse. It was a fun traverse, but the hike out was hard on the knees.

It snowed the previous night and stayed cold all morning under a shy sun. Made the ridge run more interesting though! We hit all but 1 of the gardarmes. Made for a more exciting day.
Definately recommend this one for more experienced folks!

Summited with my boy Casey Reed. We tore it up but skipped three of the gendarmes. I shall return and bag those three when the time comes. Descended via steep scree running back into the Bighorn Creek Valley before I knew any better.
