With Elk Tooth.
Via "Dalkes Couloir", great snow climb in august.
Very long hike in Wild Basin with Steve and John. Went up Copeland via Ouzel Lake, traversed to Ogalalla and Elk Tooth, then back down to the trailhead via Pear Lake trail. Really liked the ridge from Ogalalla to the saddle with Elk Tooth, reminded me of the Gore. The Elk Tooth side wasn't as much fun, a little loose.
It is a long hike via Wild Basin TH and you are definitely alone once you get past Ouzel Falls. I don't remember seeing anyone enroute. Very flat on the Continental Divide.
I was attempting the Tooth to Tooth Traverse, but I had to bail before I made it to "Red Deer Mountain" due to approaching t-storm clouds.
Long day, but great to finally summit Ogalalla, after the scree slog up the N slopes of Ouzel Pk from Pipit Lake.
Very interesting day. Had planned on traverse between Elk Tooth & Ogalalla but went crazy and continued on over "Ooh La La", "Red Deer Mountain" & Sawtooth Mountain. I coined it the tooth to tooth traverse.
A nice scramble from Elks Tooth and the St Vrain Basin. Views from the top are wonderful and worth the approach. Some decent class 3/4 rock on the ridge.
Total ascents = 2. First time from a camp in the middle St Vrain drainage via "Dalkes Couloir, descended via Buchanan Pass." 2nd time from Wild Basin via Ouzel Peak.
We climbed this from the West, camping in Hell Canyon. Also that day we did Cooper and Marten peaks. Amazing area, and on a summer weekend, three-day backpack, we saw not one other person. Hurray for the west side!
