Route Comment

The mine at 12,130 ft. that Kane states is the key to the descent from UN13,686 in his route description is the Tasmania Mine. It was one of the better mines in the Winfield District, having produced a good quanity of

silver and copper ore in the early 1900's. Becaause it is a key point I have added a general photo of the area showing the Tasmania Mine from which climbers can orient themselves before the climb. Near the bottom of the first switchback from the top if you look uphill you can see what is left of the mine's boarding house and office of which I have also added a photo. Also the Tasmania Mine is on private property.
