Brighton Ridge Run  Sucess!

Parked at the gate on the Guardsman Pass Road. Hiked up the west ridge of 10420. Hit 10420, Clayton, Preston/10315, 10321, Pioneer Peak, and Sunset Peak. Descended to Brighton via Lake Catherine. Great snow conditions. We didn't need either snowshoes or crampons. With Anne Perry. My 14th time up here.

Along with 3 other peaks  Sucess!

Skinned up from the base of the Crest Express lift at Brighton, to the backcountry entry point at the top of that lift. Of course the ski resort was closed for the season. Went along the pioneer ridge to the peak. It took less than 2 hours one-way. From the peak I back tracked, and continued along the ridge line bagging Preston Peak, Clayton Peak, and unnamed peak at N 40.60001 W 111.55839 (1.0 km N 8° as the crow flies from Clayton Peak at 10,420 ft). The whole trip, with breaks and everything took 5.5 hours.

Swoop  Sucess!

After being chased off Sunset by a large bird of prey I made my way over to Pioneer with Matt. It was all a nice morning hike.

Double Deuce  Sucess!

I've got to stop drinking so much melonade. Justin A. (Gutloaf) and I bagged this and Sunset Peak this morning. We started from Albion Basin at 4:20 AM and went up via Catherine Pass. After Pioneer Peak we descended a very steep tree slope and came across the remnants of few old-timey miner's cabins. We found the lakes trail and circled back up to Catherine Pass and then ran down to the car.
