From love land pass, hiked the ridge. Nice day out. Also tagged peak 12585.
Easy jaunt from Loveland Pass. Not a bad little climb. Snow on a steep shoulder kept it interesting, though never harder than 2+.
snowy continental divide hike with adam, nabbed UN 12,585 along the way.
Followed the Continental Divide.
Combined with UN12585.
We set up a car shuttle to enjoy two Loveland Pass 12ers including this one (and then accidentally blew past one of them right out of the pass...) as well as Coon Hill and "Golden Bear." Great day! Weather was fantastic. This is a great route option for altitude training as you are well above timberline for several hours.
I hiked it from Loveland Pass, following the Continental Divide the whole way.
Out and back from Loveland Pass with ascent of PT 12585 (which is about the easiest 12er in Colorado...). Pretty much a ridge run the whole way and quite avy safe in winter. The biggest danger are the cornices, make sure there is solid ground beneath the snow if you can't walk on rock.
Hiked Golden Bear then followed the Continental Divide around and Hike Peak 12552. Hiked down the west ridge following the CD until I got the the saddle. Very steep and a lot of scree in areas. Headed down the rocks which proved to be a nice way down until I got to the marshy area's then the willows. Ug, I'll never do that route again.
