from Colorado Mines Peak to Bancroft and back. Good training for Denali.
Came in on the South Slopes from Fall River Trailhead. A wonderful journey.
Peak #6 of the day
Excellent day. Parry first via the falls above Fall River Reservoir, then into the Peaceful Valley and then up the ridge with a stout short horn feature halfway up. Blue skies with light clouds, light wind. Then Eva, then into the drainage southeast of Eva to the lakes, then back down to the FRR. With Michelle.
Parked at Fall River Reservoir and climbed the East Ridge of Bancroft, then over to Parry and Eva. The willows coming down off Eva sucked! But the East Ridge was a delight.
Will never look the same...
Other than the normal high winds this time of year, perfect weather and a great hike. From Fall River Reservoir and via Mt Bancroft.
Hit mines, flora, Eva, parry, & Bancroft.
I was at a conference in Winter Park and after that, I woke up very early and hiked Colorado Mines Peak, Flora, Eva, Parry and Bancroft. What a lovely September day!
Did a nice loop from Bancroft, Parry, Eva, and Witter. Once back at the reservoir we were disgusted with the amount of trash that has been left behind. Pick up some but we soon could no longer carry anymore.
Climbed along with Colorado Mines, Flora,Eva,Bancroft and James Pk. Long Day but very rewarding.
Great Views the entire day. Fall Colors were in bloom.
With Eva & Flora.
Climbed along with Bancroft, Eva, Flora, and Whitter. One of my most memorable days of solo mountaineering.
Climbed from Fall River, lots of scree, but the views are amazing
A long day in the mountains - climbed Parry along with CO Mines, Flora, Wittier, Eva, Bancroft, and Breckenridge. Returned back to Berthoud Pass.
We (the usual suspects, including Aaron and Ellen) summited Bancroft first, then continued to summit Parry. I really remember enjoying this mountain.
Ben and I did the East Ridge Direct with the exciting rappel then traversed Parry, Eva, Flora and CO Mines to Berthod Pass.
Hiked up Bancroft from the Fall River Reservoir via the SE Ridge and then headed over to Parry. Returned down the South Slopes following the upper reaches of Fall River. Beautiful day, although cold and windy on the upper slopes.
