This trio took the wind out of my sails.

X and Z  Sucess!

Peak X is one of the better Gore Range mountains. Climbed over Usable Pass from a camp between Solitude and East Partner with Mike and Larre. Usable Pass is steep and unpleasant. Over the pass one encounters pretty easy scrambling to the summit in a remote setting, which makes Peak X memorable.

XYZ  Sucess!

Second time up X from Pitkin, continued along ridge to Y and Z then back across the basin to Usable Pass and the Pitkin Creek trail. From X the ridge looks very intimidating, early on dropping left was necessary for 2 or 3 large steps on the ridge. Then you can stay on the crest pretty much all the way to Y and on towards Z before 2 towers just before the Z saddle had me dropping right.

Repeated this traverse plus Z Prime with Rachael and Craig on 8/14/16 as well, 3rd time up X.

ZYX Traverse  Sucess!

Traversed to "Peak X" from "Peak Y". Pitkin/Usable Pass approach. Typical Gore goodness!

From Y and Z  Sucess!

Enjoyed a solid ridge run from Peak Z and Y on a bluebird day. This traverse is easier than it looks from Y with only a few towers on the ridge to drop off for. We went right when difficulties arose. Y was my favorite summit of the day.

Pitkin Traverse  Sucess!

Climbed along with "Skiers Pt", "Climbers Pt", "Solitude", and "Vista" on a nice long ridge traverse from the Pitkin Creek side. Beautiful clear day for a ridge run!

A great day on one of my favorite mountains. It was worth all the previous attempts.
