myroneWest Ridge via Mayflower Gulch  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 12, 2013


From Mayflower Gulch road, across Mayflower Creek and up Pacific Creek bush-whacking through the willows. Found the ridge to be a fine challenge with some class 4 moves along the way, broken/loose rock is a constant.

Fun ridge, some loose rock detracts from the quality of the route a little, but this is a great quick way to get up Pacific from the west and offers some patches of quality scrambling along the way.

I've climbed this three times now and have never found a 3rd class route up this ridge. Maybe I'm missing something but it is a very fun 4th class climb. Also, I'm not so sure about the "solid" rock as most stuff we pulled on seemed to move with little resistance. Lots of rock fall. It is still one of my favorite scrambles.

Nice winter route, some snow and wind made it interesting.

A fun, short scramble route up a Centennial. I liked it.

schmitie3rd class?  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 5, 2010
this was a fun route, but i definitely found the suggested 3rd class route impossible to find. We wound up making a very exposed 4th class face climb on the second tower. The ridge proper is fine after that except maybe at the summit Notch. There again go high and climb the 4th class gully. Lower is totally rotten with loose down climbing. I found this hike significantly tougher than the little Pawnee Traverse and Mt. Neva route in "Colorado Scrambles"

Throw in some snow, low visibility, wind, fun rock/snow scrambling, and lots of route finding and you get a great day out with Timothy P.

With MikeyB. Snowy day with about 2 inches of accumulation. Low visibility most of the ascent (blind). Stuck to the ridge direct minus first tower and one other vertical section. Lots of fun scrambling, snow climbing, and route finding. Wind picked up as we gained summit which helped clear the visibility. Descended SW face by down-climbing some loose crud then down a curved snow gully to a nice glissade.

Have done this one a few times now--one of my favorites in the Tenmile, it's been different each time. The crux seems to be crossing over a steep, rotten gully to the right of the second tower about halfway up the ridge- test those holds!

Very fun route with mixed terrain and some 4th class. Lots of snow with whipping winds on the ridges between Pacific and Atlantic.

interesting winter climb, snow/ice combos forced me into alot of class four terrain and a sketchy low class five crux. hair raising experience, but fun.
