Front Range Camping Trip

November 8 – 9, 2015

With snow accumulating in the high alpine, Pat “Perry” Johnson and Jon Creasy planned a camping trip into a part of the Front Range not too far from Breckenridge. Since I haven’t camped in winter weather in a while, I decided to take the opportunity to brush up on my skills and get out there with them. We reached the trailhead and started the skin to our destination. This consisted of pretty good snow but did have a lot of rocks and melted out areas to avoid.

Jeff Kepler, Pat “Perry” Johnson, and I ventured into the front range and were able to find some deeper snow and fun pow turns early this morning.

Mt. Edwards / Argentine Peak / Mt. Wilcox / Square Top Mountain A

September 25, 2015

With a beautiful Friday free for both Pat “Perry” Johnson and I, a stroll around some Front Range 13ers seemed to be just what the doctor ordered. T-shirt weather in the alpine doesn’t come around too often this late in the season and we relished the warm weather all day. We made our way from Peru Creek to the summit of Mt. Edwards and then we were off to Argentine Peak. After a quick break at the summit we headed to Mt. Wilcox via its rolling ridge. Descending from its summit and we were off to Square Top Mountain A.

Mt. Bierstadt / Mt. Evans Sawtooth Traverse

September 16, 2015

Looking to get our class 3 fix, Pat Johnson and I decided that the Sawtooth traverse between Mt. Bierstadt and Mt. Evans was good to go. We made our way from the trailhead around 5:45 AM and worked our way to the summit of Bierstadt. We did not waste much time on the summit with the mountains engulfed in clouds and a chilling temperature in the air.

Ascended Mt. Silverheels, a centennial 13er, from Hoosier Pass. A lot of good terrain for the winter months exists around it.
