Pitkin Traverse  Sucess!

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!

Gore Range Initiation  Sucess!

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.

Skiers Point, Climbers Point, Solitude... Winter  Sucess!

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.

Route Climbed: South Ridge Date Climbed: 7-3-04  Sucess!

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.
