Moss and Lavender  Sucess!

With Rachael and Seth. Seth's first thirteener, just moved to Durango less than a week earlier (Rachael's cousin). Climbed via Tomahawk Basin and up over Moss. Really enjoyed the finish scramble to Lavender's summit. Had to skip Babcock, even over Labor Day weekend the couloir to access the true summit was choked with snow and we had no snow gear.

Moss East Ridge  Sucess!

I went exploring one day and ended up on Diorite. I traversed the ridge to Mount Moss, which involved some thoughtful class 4 climbing to breach the summit cliffs. On a lighter note, trundling mailbox sized blocks off of the north face was a lot of fun!

Traverse from Hesperus  Sucess!

The traverse to Lavender from Hesperus was fun but time consuming. Continued on to Moss, Centennial & Sharkstooth from there.

via traverse from Hesperus  Sucess!

Climbed Lavender via the traverse from Hesperus. This traverse is not recommended unless you are a good routefinder and have a high tolerance for loose junk! Met partner on Lavender, who started from Tomahawk Basin. You'll need great weather and a real early start, because there are few bailout options on the ridge.
