Ramp to Heaven  Sucess!

Niwot Ridge is a spectacular climb, but highly exposed if a thunderstorm rolls in. I have been on Niwot Ridge 3-5 times. On one of those climbs/hikes, I stayed up high too long and had to descend in an all-out thunderstorm with lightning and rain. I was happy to get below tree line.

Tour of the Basin  Sucess!

Up Queens Way to Apache, over to Dickers Peck (ran into some people I know who loaned me a harness and belayed me up). Then, up the North Face of Navajo, over to Niwot Ridge, and down Airplane Gully.

Camped..,  Sucess!

near the weather station one winter. The views of Arikaree Peak and the "forbidden zone" were worth it!

On the way to Navajo  Sucess!

Niwot Ridge was a fun scramble, except I kept finding loose rock everywhere. Made my way over to Navajo and descended the gully and out the standard route.

Long Class 4 Traverse  Sucess!

Quick side trip? What?! Niwot Ridge is much more involved than what this page suggests. We did this after Shoshoni, Apache (via Kasparov traverse), and Navajo. Expecting easy scrambling, this is Class 3-4. Dropped into the basin just west of Long Lake to get some H2O from the stream.

Quick side trip  Sucess!

Nabbed this unranked summit after climbing Dickers Peck and Navajo Peak. Good views of the forbidden watershed.

A little dicier than what I was expected towards the very end but pretty awesome scramble
