Great day on the Divide!
Clear skies the entire day. Beautiful area without another soul in sight!
On a traverse of Ida, Chief Cheley, Cracktop, Julian, Terra Tomah, Sprague and Flattop.
Total ascents = 5.
This was a fun summit. I made it to the top along with nine other members in my group. We were a group from Solid Rock Outdoor Ministries that is based in Laramie, WY. This summit was one of the highlights of a seven day trip that included three days in Vedauwoo and four in RMNP. We started the climb from Tonahutu Meadows butt-early in the morning. But it was worth it all. It was so beautiful, thank you Jesus! Many of the other kids enjoyed their first summit in their life. As for me, I dedicated the climb to my father, my brother, and my best friend Ty S. because of the men of God they have been in my life.
After climbing Hayden's Spire we came back across Sprague Mounatin and along the divide to our back country site on the Tonahutu Trail.
Long hike and deceptively steep from the south slope. Great center view of the national park. Won't see anybody else on this summit!
Summitted Sprague on Continental Divide traverse from Milner Pass to Bear Lake. Great weather most of the day, but clouds (and some lightning) moving in after Sprague and Bighorn Flats. Great views on either side of the Divide.
Lots of tundra hiking
nice summit with great views on the approach into forrest canyon and moraine park. en route to Hayden spire..
