With Rachael. Climbed via Fish Creek with Dolores, the ridge crest was fun!
Started at Fish Creek, did Dunn Peak first, then went onto Middle Peak and finally Dolores. Windy, not a soul out there. Views of Wilson group outstanding!
Combined Middle with Dunn and Dolores that made for a nice 7 hour loop from Fish Creek. The west ridge of Middle is a bit tricky with snow. The ridge run down to the Dolores saddle was fun, pretty exposed in spots on the north side.
This was my third attempt! In May 2009 I was chased off twice by electrical weather, the second time just minutes from the summit. This time I completed the entire loop over Dunn, Middle and Dolores. Middle Peak's west ridge was more interesting than expected with the fresh snow - reportedly class 2+ when dry.
A scenic but less-traveled mountain at the western edge of the San Juans.
