Tour de Buckskin  Sucess!

Wanted an easy centennial today - and I got it! I was scared off by the No Parking signs by the Sweet Home Mine, so I parked a bit further up. That meant that I spent a half-hour trying to find an nice way through the willows (dog on leash through that stuff is no fun). Up Loveland to Buckskin (both summits).

NE slopes from Kite Lake  Sucess!

Short hike- took more time to drive there from DIA than it took to get up and back down. Beautiful weather, but some wind. I didn't see anyone on my side of Kite Lake despite a full lot there.

Via Loveland Mtn  Sucess!

Easy day out. Winds were insane. Decided to bail on Tweto and Co. Great glissade though!!

a great climb and scramble  Sucess!

I climbed with a group of "usual suspects" that included Aaron and Ellen. Fun scrambling, as I recall.

I think....  Sucess!

Low clouds and snow, so visibility wasn't that great. I seemed to have gone across a ridge and hit both summits ????

with Loveland  Sucess!

I climbed Loveland Mountain first and then over to Buckskin. My descent was closer to Kite Lake than where I started the hike. It was really windy that day. Sometimes I had to stop and brace myself and not move. If I kept on walking I didn't know where my foot would come down!

Route Climbed: Kite Lake TH, NE Slopes  Sucess!

The ridge was holding alot of fresh snow. A hazy white out above about 13,300ft - little wind but some fresh snow. I couldn't see more than 10 feet away on the stormy summit. I wish I could have seen the views from up top. Nevertheless, another solo success.

Route Climbed: Northeast Slopes and Buckskin TH in November Date Climbed: August 26, 2005 and Novemer 21, 2004  Sucess!

Nice short hike. Great to leave the hordes headed for the Decalibron. Had it to myself.

In November we encountered 6-8 inches of new snow. Climbed to the summit of Loveland via the Buckskin TH which is about 1.5 miles before Kite Lake.

Route Climbed: From Kite Lake Date Climbed: August 20, 2005  Sucess!

We did a loop out of it and climbed up the eastern slopes and down the western side. Nice views of all the people on Democrat etc. We saw no one all day on Buckskin - just how we like it. Nice mountain!
