Don't know how I missed signing this one!
From Fulford Cave TH. Approached Gold Dust via Negro Basin. Traversed to Pika & UN 12940 afterwards. Solo.
Climbed with Matt J. Great Peak and saw friends in guidebook over the years. Peak is not climbed much.
Visited Mystic Lake before hiking back and bushwhacking up the drainage. Camped in Negro Basin under a full moon, very cool. Hit the summit at 7am.
Three ascents (so far), one of my favorite local peaks.
1st 9/27/2008 via Lake Charles/Negro Basin with traverse to Pika and PT 12940. The traverse to Pika is a fun class 4 route with some route finding challenges near the saddle.
2nd 7/11/2010 via Lake Charles/Negro Basin with a trip to PT 12730 to the east, PT 12730 was my 100th peak in Eagle County.
3rd 8/23/2015 via Lake Charles/Negro Basin with traverse to Pika, with Brian and Steve.
