shknbkeNorth ridge from W. Partner  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 13, 2010

shknbke

Finished a long day of scrambling with Outpost after doing the Partner traverse. This ridge run is relatively easy after getting off the upper slopes of West Partner until you get to the saddle. From here, you negotiate of series of towers. The crux tower is Point 12241, which we bypassed via a gully descent on the west side.

Only one run open at Vail, so I decided to extend hiking season with a trip up "Outpost". Climbed via the South Ridge, dry to 10,200' (gotta love the south facing slopes in fall!), minimal snow above that - gaitors, no snowshoes. Great views of the surrounding higher peaks.

What a great day out! The Weather couldn't have been better. The stats on this route are deceiving. Great Winter peak for Chris and the dogs (Denali & Yukon) and I!

Awesome day. Jared (coloradoiceclimber) and I skinned up on excellent snow until the final 200 feet or so. The views from the top were without rival on a clear day. The snow softened up on the way down and provided excellent skiing until the final 600ft at the bottom which was extremely soft and difficult in the nearly 50 degree heat.

Summited via South Ridge with Eric H on telemark skis. Weather was very interesting, overcast-fluuries-clear. Snow was miserably crusty for most of the descent. Had some intersesting crashes. Great summit for the views of surrounding valleys. 5 hours up, 2.5 tough hours down. 8am-4.5pm.

Broke a lot of powder trail to treeline. Heavy snow and wind turned us (James and I) around. Wanted a clear day to scope out/ photo Mt Solitude. Trail is broken... till it snows a bunch this weekend. Skiing is good up there, save me some lines.

A very satisfying climb to a summit with excellent views of the central Gore Range. The weather was perfect as well as the company.
