Swimming the Atlantic & Pacific

I had 14ers on the brain, but the unchecked peaks were too far for a day trip, and Brian couldn’t get away for an overnighter. Brian suggested we do “Atlantic” as it is nearby (near Copper Mountain) and would provide a good ski descent. We could also add in Pacific if we made good time. I agreed.

Our plan for April 13, 2002 had 4 easy steps:

(1) Follow the mining road until we could cross the streambed to pass between Mayflower Hill and “Atlantic Peak”
(2) Ascend the West (summit) Ridge to “Atlantic” and proceed east to the summit of “Atlantic”
(3) Traverse to Pacific Peak, if time, conditions, and fitness permit
(4) Descend back to the trailhead and reach home alive
