3 goats sighted  Sucess!

With Michelle. Late start did not impact us. From Chinn lake (lower). Road sort of sucked but we gutted it out. Ever so gentle rain on summit from partly cloudy sky. We did west ridge. Only 12 feet of easy 3rd on final summit ramp. Saw 2 goats close, one far.

with Eva  Sucess!

Ski descent with Brian, Ben and Derek of Welcome Couloir after Eva's SE bowl. Some new snow a few days before made for an interesting mix of powder and the early formations of a sun crust, but it was a good early spring tour!

From Berthoud Pass  Sucess!

Hiked this along with CO Mines, Breckenridge and Flora. Blue skis but windy and cold. Good day though.

Nice loop  Sucess!

Did a nice loop from Bancroft, Parry, Eva, and Witter. Once back at the reservoir we were disgusted with the amount of trash that has been left behind. Pick up some but we soon could no longer carry anymore.

Witter and Eva  Sucess!

Started at Fall River Reservoir, cut south along the creek that flows out of Chinn Lake, followed the northern shore of Chinn and Sherwin Lakes and then headed up to Slater Lake before heading west towards the saddle between Witter and Eva. Hiked up Witter first and then followed the Divide to Eva. On the return we scrambled down Eva to the saddle between Eva and Pt. 12,850.

E. Ridge  Sucess!

Solo from Chin's Lake. Easy scrambling. Take care route finding on the way down as some of those gullies end with cliffs. I descended a different gully than the one I ascended and got cliffed out. Hiked back up to the ridge and continued to trend east until I could find a good escape point. If all else fails, keep heading east and you'll find a way out.

from Berthoud  Sucess!

From Berthoud Pass  Sucess!

Snuck this one in after climbing Colorado Mines, Flora & Eva. The cliffs that make up the south face were impressive in their white cloak but visibility wasn't very good.

NE Ridge  Sucess!

I guess it is called the north east ridge but really it is more easterly trending. Hiked up from the trailhead to Chinn's Lake and then steeply up to the ridge. Didn't see anyone.

From Chinn's Lake, up NE slopes  Sucess!

Instead of hiking to the saddle between Witter and Eva and then up, I decided to go straight up the NE face of Witter at the west end of Sherwin Lake. Only 50 feet of class 2+/3 at the end of the route. A very pleasant hike.

Route Climbed: Fall River TH enroute to Flora Date Climbed: 13 July 2005  Sucess!

I took this in as an aside today while hiking Bancroft, Parry, Eva and Flora. Weather was great and no snow to deal with. Witter really looks good from Flora's summit.
