mount solitude traverse with its unranked summits. Pitkin TH parking lot is limited to only 3 hrs, but luckily nobody checked.
easy climb on the way home
Steep ascent and long day!
Climbed these along with "Solitude", "Vista" and "X" on a nice long ridge traverse from the Pitkin Creek side. Beautiful clear day for a ridge run!
Had these ones to myself in mid-summer. The wonderful experience has caused me to dedicate myself to learning the Gore Range inside and out.
Climbed from Bighorn Hilton, belly deep in snow leading the notch.
Summited Skiers Point after spending the night in the Bighorn Drainage, then on to Climbers Point, then Mt Solitude and back home. Long day. Variable snow, tough to ski after all that climbing. 13 hours total, both days.
Much fun. Skiers Point is a rather interesting summit. Kane and Andy provbided amicable company. Sopris and Ray dogs were along for the ride.
Ditto Andy's comments below, especially the "great company comment." Skiers Point via its south ridge, was slightly more technical than I envisioned from looking at the topo map. Do not underestimate the downclimb and traverse of the notch, it is exposed. Without the snow melting away from the wall of rock during the travese, there wouldn't have been anything to keep you from sailing 800-ft down the mountain with a slip.
I Climbed Climbers Point and Skiers Point along with Mount Solitude with Kane and JonBradford. A beautiful hike with great weather and great company.
