Wild raspberries, bull elk, wilderness tarn, glaciated gorge, and fun scrambling...RMNP at its best. Easy and fun scramble along the ridge with very little exposure. Lots of options to add some rock climbing. I barely fit into the squeeze chimney to reach the end of the ridge.
Climbed with the CUHC.
Climbed with a good cadre of SP'ers. A great day.
I was 16! I remember those exposed moves -- but fortunately, at that young age, I could jump like a gazelle. My climbing partner saw the first notch, said "no way" and I picked him up on the way back. Wherever there was bad exposure, I just jumped across. As, to have those tendons and those nerve endings these days.
Lots of fun in the Park and at the brewfest.
Did the SP spring gathering (and brewfest!). Great time!
The great scrambling along the ridge is pretty short and the loose talus slog is pretty long... but it was still a good time with great company.
Climbed with the SP Colorado group spring gathering 2006, my first SP gathering. Had a great time. Loose rock on the slope up to the ridge was a concern, but we all managed to survive. I hate to say it, but this was only my second climb in RMNP… I have to go back for more!
Great climb as the spring summit post gathering!
Total ascents = 2. Nice exposed scramble along the summit ridge.
The Little Matterhorn lived up to it's reputation of being a fairly easy climb where spectacular photos can be taken. Unfortunately I do not have the photos that were taken that day...just the memory of a good climb.
Fun little solo scramble!
