Very nice hike. Bushwhacked up through the trees and SW slope to the ridge; went quick.
Hiked this route with Steve Vets. Can't say I was especially excited about the route but the views were fantastic.
Time issues blew our chances for Chipeta Peak.
We had to park 2 miles bellow TH and bushwack till we gain the ridge. Beautiful bluebird december day, great views from top. Almost get stuck driving from the pass,

cold and windy hike with poor visibility, still a nice outing with Duchess.
