Hiked with Sarah and combed with 9,410.
Good day out. No rain or storms! Dodged a bullet!
Today was our "off day" to sleep in and enjoy a casual stroll. Combined UN 9410 and Gray Back. Great views from Gray Back, of course, but I was surprisingly pleased by the views from UN 9410, too. With Kiefer & Logan - two happy, boisterous book-ends.
Nice hike, interesting summit.
Nice little hike! Will have to go back, with a rope, and try some of those sport routes.
A nice hike with my son.
Great early evening hike with snow squalls.
The foot of snow was pleasant, but the winds were HOWLING. Our hiking group couldn't even carry on conversation because of the constant sound like a jet engine roaring. The higher reaches had a lot of wind slabbing which, while not dangerous on such moderate, tree-covered slopes, made the post-holing painful. Hiking partners: Olga's CMC trip.
I've been up Gray Back twice and it is a nice short hike. The actual highpoint of the mountain is Pt 9410 n.e. of the named summit. A challenging bushwack would be to add "Goat Mtn" to the east, which is listed on the Pikes Peak Atlas. It will challenge your routefinding abilities.
I combined this peak with UN 9410 and Blue Mtn., starting from the Gray Back Peak TH on FS 371. A nice summit, even if unranked.
