6/1/08 - Postholing in the trees.
1/6/16 - Winter loop over Woods, Parnassus, Bard, Robeson & Engelmann from Ruby Creek.
From Avy gate sign. Up road stayed left at fork in road. From end of road went up gully and stayed left ( right goes to saddle with Robeson). Hit summit and traversed to Robeson then down the chute from the saddle.
Parked near gated 4wd road just past the mine. Went up the 4wd road a couple hundred feet to a weather station and then cut up through the trees and followed the ridge to the summit. Didn't seem too horribly steep this way. Continued to Robeson. Came down the avalanche chute from Robeson/Engelmann saddle; FAST descent with many glissade opportunities.
Meetup.com hike with Leonard and Bernice, and Leonard's dog, Maya. We got Engelmann first, then got Robeson, Bard, Parnassus and Woods. It was a beautiful day: crystal clear skies, breezy and chilly but not horrible.
started late the first time and didn't make the top. the second time was better, i'm surprised how far back there it is!
Great Day, the slope to Engelmann is very steep.
The pup, wife and I.
With Ruby Mountain & Cooper Mountain.
Mike's so fast, he can climb in the future (Oct 29 2012???) Dang!
Windy combo with Bard and Parnassus from the Urad Mine gate. Climbed with Floyd and Lordhelmut, then we went to pig out at Smokin' Yards BBQ in Idaho Springs... a well earned meal.
(oops! I guess it was 2011...)
This must be that newly reconstructed page I've been hearing about. Good timing. Went up Engelmann, Robeson, and Bard from the Urad mine.
with Sarah and Senad. Steep hike from Urad, and nice descent ridge straight down from Robeson.
I'm glad we did it, it was great day out!
Senad was gracious enough not to post photos of the full-body post holing we were doing!!! Great day, windy, but sunny. I could have done without the body-snatcher snow in the trees, but...that's Springtime in the Rockies!
Windy but nice hike in Front Range, great company with Sarah Simon and Derek.
