Route Climbed: South Ridge from Peak 10 Date Climbed: 5 September, 2005  Sucess!

I started the morning by climbing Father Dyers Class 3 Northeast Ridge. From there I traversed over Crystal and Peak 10 before climbing Peak 9's South Ridge. I returned to the Spruce Creek TH via the Wheeler Trail.

It made for an exciting tour of the area.

Route Climbed: South Ridge from Peak 10 Date Climbed: June 23, 2002  Sucess!

After summiting Peak 10 by it's East Ridge route, rather than descending by the road to the large meadow between the peaks, I scrambled down 10' North ridge until I found the prominant snowfield along the Northeast Face (conditions of this are visible from Breckenridge). A steep glissade and I dropped 500 feet, before reaching the boulders at the snowfield's base. Then I traversed back toward the sadlle and easily ascended Peak 9. The descent was to the Southeast, intersecting the excellent Wheeler Trail. It would be easy to continue north from Peak 9 to Peak 8 for those desiring amother summit.
