Royal to Peak 5, then back to Town on Miners Creek and Peaks trails, great way to get the best scrambling when solo or w/o a car shuttle.
Hit both Peak 1 and Tenmile. Good fun,,great weather. Rain hit at the car, perfect timing.
Hiked Pk One and Tenmile Pk with Steve Crosby and one other (?) COBS friend.
LOTS of Post-holing below treeline, fun above the trees though
Felt a lot longer than 3 1/2miles. Little disappointed there was no flag.
Only got as far as Mt. Victoria...will return if given the opportunity.
Not successful. Spent a night on Mount Royal. Second day was turned back by snow conditions nearing Tenmile Peak. This route is pretty rough in the winter. A challenge waiting to be conquered!
Started in Frisco, ran the ridge from Royal all the way to Peak 8 and then down to Breckenridge. Took the free county bus back to my car, great to have that so you can do this solo!
The beginning of a long day!
Victoria, Peak 1 and Tenmile. The ridge is very chill between Peak 1 and Tenmile.
Several climbs, always classic and fantastic. Great views and worthy peak to mark the northern border of the Ten Mile Range.
Did Peak 1 via the East ridge from Miner's Creek then all the way across to Peak 9. Got picked up by my wife at the Peak 9 restaurant, which made for a sweet car shuttle!
I climbed Peak 1 with several of the IU group, my "usual suspect" companions. On the way up I got lightheaded from lack of potassium (?), and got bailed out with a banana supplied by one of my friends.
After I got down to the car, I drove back to Denver to attend a Grateful Dead concert.
What a day!
Just me and a single mountain goat on the summit this day. The goat approached from the Tenmile saddle and we reached the summit at the exact same time. The goat made the downclimb look easy and he left me in the dust.
Excellent hike; awesome views; and good, steep climbing on the upper route.
First climbed as part of the Tenmile Traverse, and have come back a few times since. Beautiful mountains. The east ridge is a treat.
The "gang of 5" climbed Peak 1 and Tenmile to scout a route around or over Peak 3. It looks daunting! We all live in Summit Co and have climbed Peak 1 several times for the outstanding views.
Climbed as part of the Tenmile Traverse, a long, nice hike.
A perfect day for a summit. The stats:
Radio Tower - 1:00 elapsed
Peak 1 - 2:15 elapsed
Peak 2 - 3:15 elapsed (1/2 hr crossing)
The Mt. Royal trail branches at around 10,050 feet. The right branch goes to Mt. Royal overlook, and the left branch hits the crest of the ridge above the overlook. I took the left branch and enjoyed a pretty walk through the upper forest. I dropped below the Peak 1-Tenmile ridge to the East on my way out to Tenmile, but on the way back I stayed directly on the ridge and didn't encounter anything harder than 3rd class (with great views alllll the way down to I-70 :-).
Another great day... Gorgeous views down to I-70 and to the east as well. Took around 2.5 hours to Peak 1 summit and about 30 additional minutes to Tenmile Peak. The saddle to Tenmile is actually a bit easier I think than the route right under Peak 1, but it has spectacular views!! Long, steep route down... boy my knees are sore! Thanks for the beta! a great set of peaks!
