We wanted to go climb a mountain this past weekend, and we were unsure of where to go. We were looking for something that was tall, nearby, and was a summit we hadn’t yet climbed. It was actually kind of hard to find a mountain that fit that description.
Holy Cross Ridge. It may not be the most creative name for one of Colorado’s Centennials, but as a ski objective the mountain is definitely inspiring.
Christy and I went to Twin Lakes to run Mount Elbert last weekend, a favorite outing of ours and a pretty novel running experience considering it’s the tallest mountain in the state.
We’re pretty sure everyone has gotten over hearing about skiing at this point, but the snow just continued to hang on in the Sawatch Range so I was able to check off a few more peaks this past weekend – Oklahoma, Casco, and French.
Route: North Face Team: Christy, Ted, Chris Davenport, Scott Rinckenberger If you haven't been tuned into the Centennial Skiers Project, to sum it up quickly I'll say it's been a really good spring. Christy, Dav, and I (along with an assortment of friends) crisscrossed the state, skiing high-13er summits day after day. Not only has it been really productive, but it also rated pretty high on the old fun meter....
Next up on the ski list was Emerald Peak, 13,904 ft., another Colorado Centennial.
It was a great day skiing Ice Mountain and North Apostle.
Mount Oklahoma, a Centennial 13er just south of Mount Massive, is a great ski descent.
Casco and French, a cool combo of high 13ers with cool ski lines.
After Mount Meeker, we were off to the Sawatch Range to ski Lackawanna Peak.
