East Ridge  Sucess!

Kurt, Chris and I climbed the East Ridge and descended by the south slopes. Views from the summit are outstanding. The crux is something else. We were scouting this as a possible Summit Seniors Mtn Goat hike. We would lose a lot of friends. We saw two other climbers following us.

East Ridge, descent via South Slopes  Sucess!

My wife and I climbed Keller with a couple of friends via its East Ridge on a soggy day. The wet rock made this third-class scramble more interesting. We descended Keller's south slopes, passing Lake 11,660 before entering upper North Rock Creek's meadows. From there we enjoyed a breathtaking bushwhack back to the trailhead -- one of the most beautiful hikes I've been on! The Gore Range is definitely something special, and I'm looking forward to coming back. A trip report is available here.

East Ridge  Sucess!

Fantastic! Descended the south slopes to avoid being on the ridge during afternoon thunderstorms and endured a bushwhack back to the car.

Route Climbed: Rock Creek-South face Date Climbed: October 2005  Sucess!

Started out as simply a hike, turned into a scramble to the top. The views of the Grand Traverse are staggering and enticing. Someday...
