A great summit climb in an uncrowded area. Offers great views into the Gore Range.
A very pleasant mountain. Red Peak seems like a Gateway summit to the interior of the Gore Range; It is easier to ascend then many of the more rugged mountains further north yet it shares their scenery and atmosphere. It took me three tries to get up Red Peak so I was happy to finaly experience the summit. It is kind of surreal to look down on the tiny sail boats cruising Lake Dillon from the top of a 13 thousand foot summit. Dogs Sopris and Ray were along for the ride.
Thanks to Kane for the information provided on this mountain page.
This was a good one. Real nice views from up there. I set a personal record with thirteen hours of sleep at our camp.
Red Peak is a massive mountain residing in an unfamiliar area which really make this trip worth the effort. Red Peak is a top ten climbing experience in my day.
