Nice job, clear and concise. This great mountain finally gets the credit it deserves. Looking forward to your route description to see if it's the same way we took. Love your pictures! Mine are lousy so I'm not uploading them.
Excellent, that ridge walk from Westin Pass looks interesting.
Thanks Grant. Weston Pass does look good, but going going up the southern couloir of the cirque looks even better.
Jim, I'm glad you posted this beautiful mountain. Every time I ascend to the summit of an LCW summit and look west; the first thing I do to orient myself with the Mosquito Range is to look for the "distinctive" and perfectly shaped Horseshoe Mountain. Great Job.
Thanks Kane. I orient myself with Horseshoe too. It looks great from a distance but even better from up close.
Very nice page on a pleasant mountain. I realy like your photos of the snow draped cirque. Horseshoe Mountain has another distinuishing feature... It is one of the few high summits in the Mosquito Range composed of the Leadville Limestone. This marine sedimentary rock gives the cirque its stratified appearence. From a shollow sea to 13,000 ft... ah I love geology! Good job. It was nice to meet you on Guyot.
Thanks Jon. I wondered about the geology of the cirque. Now I know. Also nice to meet you and the dogs on Guyot. That was like the icing on the cake.
Good page with nice Pix
Good work, nice page. Cheers William
Wonderful page! Great information for this beautiful mountain! Have a good one!
Thanks for the vote. Thanks also for putting up some pictures of it from the west side. You've got a good eye! I've trained myself for a few years to identify the Mosquito peaks when seen from the west and can only pick out Horseshoe on a good day. :)
Thanks for the recent votes on my pages. Horseshoe might be the best peak of the bunch.
Nice work Jim, I love the sig photo on your profile.
