Stunning 13er in Yankee Boy Basin, does not have a page on SP anymore.
Elevation: 13,763 feet (4,195 meters)
It ranks as the 127th highest in Colorado and the 190th highest in the United States.

Awful scree in the summer, but a lovely snow climb in the spring. I circumnavigated this mountain from all sides, climbed surrounding peaks, and finally climbed this one too. What a lovely mountain.

When I first joined Summitpost, I made a page for Potosi Peak (without having climbed it). I later gave it to Aaron Johnson and he turned it into a fine page.

If the page is now deleted, why don't you make one for it?

Re: Wonderful

I think it can be claimed on Colorado rebuild forum. I am thinking about re-doing it. Thanks.
