From Thorodin  Sucess!

Peakbug and I headed over from Thorodin. From Starr, we made the quick jaunt to Sheepshead where we were rewarded with some fun rock and a different view.

From Thorodin  Sucess!

Through some dense woods from Thorodin with rkymtn. Visited Sheepheads and enjoyed the view after the Starr summit. Starr Peak made for my 100th successful summit. :)

From Gap Road with Thorodin  Sucess!

Cold, snowy but scenic traverse from Thorodin to Starr. So cold today, even at this relatively low elevation, that we couldn't stop long even to eat! Very scenic area, however, great to get back this way, it had been a while!

With Thorodin  Sucess!

After summiting Thorodin, we proceed toward Star Peak, no trail or we couldn't find one cause of snow on the ground. Nice little hike in Denver's backyard, Sheepshead was interesting rock formation. Overall, very nice day.

Thorodin - Starr - Sheepshead  Sucess!

Hiked all three peaks from Gap Road in Golden Gate Canyon State Park with my girlfriend Meghan. Due to the presence of a trail drawn from Pinecliffe to Starr Peak on many maps, Meghan and I had snowshoed to the summit of Starr Peak from Pinecliffe two weeks earlier. However, that route involved crossing much private property (and we never really did see the presence of a trail, excluding a 0.5 mile section of jeep trail along Boiling Gulch that went right next to several private residences). The approach from Gap Road was not only better in terms of legality but also shorter, had less elevation gain, and more easily allowed Thorodin Mountain to be added to the adventure. The views from the summits of Starr Peak and Sheepshead were excellent. Not only were the snow-capped peaks of the Front Range enjoyable to see, but I really enjoyed getting a unique "backside" view of the entire Boulder range.
