Pretty quick climb from Guardsman
Decided to do this short hike in my Vans after a bike ride around Shadow Lake. My GPS wasn't quite 10,420.
A short but steep climb from Guardsman Pass yields magnificent views and a fairly high peak. I tagged both false summits just in case, but both appear to be lower. This was to be the start of an exhausting 20-mile hike, which I have more detail on in my Tri-County Peak log. I highly recommend this peak for a good workout and great views!
Summited but didn't stop because i didn't even know this counted as a peak but easy hike to Clayton nonetheless.
Summited twice while doing some backcountry skiing in the Brighton area. Nice mashed taters out there!
Bagged this one on my way to Clayton Peak. Incredible view.
From Guardsman Pass. It was a nice easy hike. I took a beginner up this and she did pretty well. Thanks mountain for the wonderful views!
Nice trip up the ridge line, then followed the stash through the trees.
Easy skin in, with fun protected trees riding out. Bilers need to respect the rules...
Beautiful snowshoe up to Guardsman Pass. Right turn to 10,420 back down to the pass up Guardsman Peak and over to Scott Hill. Loved it.
08/24/2014: Clayton over to 10,420 and back over Clayton. Beautiful day.
12/13/2014: Along with Tri-County. Beat the storm. Great company.
12/24/2014: What a way to spend the morning on Christmas Eve. WOW
12/27/2014: Three-fer again today. 1 degree when we started. 16 degrees when we finished. BRRRR.
06/09/17: After an unsuccessful summit of Sundial, we opted to go further up the canyon and grab this one again.
Hiked to Peak 10,420 with Clayton Peak from Guardsman Pass.
Made a quick visit with some family.
Summit via west ridge. Unforgettable splitty descent down NW trees. Beautiful mtn
Climbed with the WMC as part of a BCC super loop.
A great landscape ruined by a girls camp, mining, and a ski resort.
Climbed with Tri-County and Clayton in about 90 minutes. Back home for lunch. Beautiful day with lots of mountain bikers at Guardsman Pass.
via the west ridge from G Pass road gate, on snowshoes. I had solitude -saw nor heard any other people (not even snowmobiles!) once I got on the ridge.
Went up Venture (10420), Clayton, and Preston from Guardsman pass, then retraced my steps.
Part of Brighton Ridge Run
I hiked this one with my brother Harold who was dealing with a 5-day old sprained ankle.
