North Star to Traver  Sucess!

Started from Hoosier Pass at 5AM. Took East Ridge to summit North Star. Connected to Wheeler, then to Clinton, then to McNamee, then to Traver. Descended into basin and took 4WD road back. Back at car around 1:45PM. No wind and lots of sun. Actually started to pour, hail, and storm as soon as I got back. The crux of this route is the headwall along the ridge to Wheeler. This ridge rapidly changes from Class 2 to 3 to 4. Trust no rock because there are lots of loose holds. Also, lots of spider webs along the ridge past the headwall. If you hate spiders as much as me, it may make you turn around.

Ski  Sucess!

A lot of fresh snow, left the skis below the summit. Nice day - nobody around.
The Wheeler road was heinous though - I had to carry my skis through deep puddles of water.

Reverse CT Clipper  Sucess!

Great day, perfect weather. Had a late start due to a long pre climb nap in my truck, turned out ok, though.

Clinton, Traver, McNamee  Sucess!

Nice loop from Montgomery Reservoir. Started with Lincoln, ended with Traver. The road wasn't a ton of fun to walk for the first couple miles though..

CT Trifecta  Sucess!

Summited Clinton, McNamee and Traver from Montgomery Reservoir. Overall a great day hiking/scrambling along the Continental Divide. It was also nice not seeing anyone, including 4 wheelers, on the entire route. Solitude is bliss. It reminded me of a similar trip a few years ago climbing French, Frasco and Casco.

jeep convention?  Sucess!

I climbed this peak with Randy, Sharon and Cheryl of the "usual suspects." Janey and Barb climbed with us as far as Wheeler Lake. We had intended to try for two or three summits today, but the length of the Traver climb alone interfered with those thoughts.

The 4WD road to Wheeler Lake still had a lot of distracting mud puddles that required detours. The upper basin above the lake was still lush and full of flowers, and the route to the summit went over lots of rocky rubble. Great views from the summit, of course.

Coming down we encountered at least 15-20 jeeps gathered at Wheeler Lake, and at least another 20 or so jeeps on the road down to the trailhead at the reservoir. This was the only negative to this route.

Another great day in the Colorado mountains!
