Skipped hiking and camping last weekend to avoid the 4th of July crowds. I heard I-70 was so bad they were “metering” traffic at the Eisenhower tunnel. Instead I did a bit of exploring around Westminster on my bike.
This weekend was back to the mountains, though.
Did a scramble along the east ridge of Pacific Peak, from the book Colorado Scrambles: Climbs Beyong the Beaten Path, and decided to grab “Atlantic” peak while I was there. To date, this is the most difficult scrambling route I’ve done.
Here’s a picture of the full ridge, from near Atlantic Peak. The route goes right along the top of the ridge.
And some of the terrain:
