Talus Torture from Hancock Pass Date Climbed: Oct 2, 2011
So, apparently 2nd October is the official date for people to climb this mountain, looking at the SP summit log! Jeeped to Hancock Pass, then summited "Hancock Peak," Van Wirt and Monumental. Headed down via Chalk Creek Pass then past the lakes before bushwhacking back up to the Jeep. Talus torture, but a beautiful hike and a reasonably fun wheeling outing with nice shelves and rock obstacles. Re-fueled at K's in BV before heading home.
