East Ridge  Sucess!

Peaks 10's east ridge route was a little more serious than I'd anticipated in winter. There were a couple of short sections exposed to avalanche danger but luckily conditions were very good. The final short section before the summit was the most interesting.

The Tenmile Traverse  Sucess!

Over from Peak Nine and up the talus slope on the north face, which had some new snow that helped to hold the shifty rocks in place, then down the east ridge and road, and onto the ski slopes.

Took me and my group about twelve and a half hours total to get from the trailhead in Frisco to the Breck Brewery, on a steady but never hurried pace. I didn't notice anyone else up on top of the range all day long.

A great way to punctuate the summer hiking season.

Tenmile Traverse  Sucess!

Last peak of the Tenmile Traverse. Summited in sketchy weather at 2 p.m., exactly 9 hrs after leaving the car in Frisco.

Also climbed on 9/27/07 with friends from Blue River. Three of us climbed Crystal from Spruce Creek, then 2 of us went on to Peak 10 and 9 while the other guy drove up from Breck to pick us up at the Pk. 9 restaurant. A nice tour de 10.

No Trail: Straight Up The Ridges  Sucess!

Started 11am on foot from the doors of the Great Divide lodge at around 10300ft, and went straight up the peak 10 runs and series of ridges all the way to the top. The ridges can be fairly steep and lengthy at times. Stopped for suntanning on one of the magnificent alpine meadows on the way up. No trails up the ridges until near the top. Arrived at the summit about 4pm, and then realized what I had just done! All alone at the very small pyramidal top of a fairly high mountain. On top of that, after I got comfortable with being up there, I spied the ridge to Crystal peak and the very beautiful upper Crystal lakes. Well, one only lives once, so off I went. Didn't make it to the summit of Crystal peak fortunately, common sense overcame me. Made it back down to town about 10pm on a moonless night, after leaving the lakes trail to get back to the lodge quicker. Problem is that I had to cut straight through unchartered forest. With no light to boot, makes for interesting situations. Luckily I have a very good sense of direction, and came out of the forest right at the edge of the ski area. A very invigorating trip...

Last Peak of the Day  Sucess!

Made it here starting from Mt Helen. Got myself pretty dehydrated during the scramble between Helen and Father Dyer, so I was really worn out by the time I got here. Stuck around long enough to scope a skinnable route up Pk 9 for a winter adventure.

Up the Wheeler Trail

I saw two elk wrestling antlers locked among a huge herd up here, quite an addicting experience. Nice gentle peak

East ridge from Spruce Creek TH  Sucess!

An easy ridge was made more difficult by an interesting ridge of snow just below the summit. There was still a lot of snow up there in late April. Awesome views from the summit.

Route Climbed: East Ridge viaSpruce Creek Trailhead  Sucess!

When me and my friends (Mark & Dave) set out from the trailhead it was 7 degrees below zero. The East Ridge is pretty easy and makes a nice winter outing.

Route Climbed: East Ridge from base of Falcon Chair at Breckenridge Date Climbed: July 4, 2004  Sucess!

I started much lower than the route described here. It was about 3 hours to the summit, following the Falcon chairlift on the lower section and then the upper ridge from there. Took my tele's with me and skied 4th of July bowl and what was left of Billy's bowl. hitched a ride down on a 4x4 at about the halfway point.

Route Climbed: From Breckenridge Date Climbed: September 4, 2004

From Breckenridge, followed the ski lifts up to the base of the summit of Peak 10 where I ran into a 4WD road that went up the eastern ridgeline of Peak 10. Weather did not look good and at this point sleet/snow began and it became foggy. Followed the road to the top of it at 13340 ft where I was stuck in dense fog and had to turn back.
