Super-fun, sustained route on surprisingly solid cobbles.
Was eyeing this one for a while, finally got it. Very solid route, although the rubble gully descent off Challenger was heinous.
Fun solid ridge. Great, enjoyable scrambling.
started up the north ridge, but for some reason, we got off route and ended climbing the north face. Still 4th class, and some easy 5th class. Awesome climb, one of the best in colorado, so far. 8/21/11 climbed again this time on the ridge proper, one of the best scrambles anywhere!!!!
A great time up. But if you do not know the standard route down, climb it first. We could not find it from the summit and wound up descending the very sketchy 5th class headwall facing challenger.
This was a great, scenic class 4 scramble up a very spectacular ridge.
just like my women
One of my favorite routes!
a killer. We hit it after a storm left a few inches of fresh snow. Most of the route was fine just extra tedious. KC ave. was really icy and nasty near the sadddle with Challenger.
This is a very enjoyable route!
