Comments: Well done, Senor Sauce,
That sounds like a pretty long day in the snow. Eight mountains down, only those eight again plus Gilpin, Block Tops, Dallas, West Dallas, T. Zero, S3, S5, S6, Mears, S7, S8, S9, and S10 to go. Plenty of time up high to think of a more appropriate moniker. How was the first third? Any trouble getting around the Saint Sophia-like spires? How did you handle those stretches? Which route did you take off of Emma? Any trouble there? Avalanche danger? Thanks for sharing y... more >>

Comments: The stretch in the sun looks to be one of the major cruxes of the traverse.

Comments: Block Tops, for sure, though "commonly" I doubt. Thanks -- poor memory. The name is rather fitting when viewed from Sneffels or Dallas Divide. I am working on getting photos up which illustrate the challenge.

Section B has been attempted following Section A from Imogene Pass, failure prior to Gilpin. Section B has not yet been attempted on its own.

Value of a winter traverse? Winter may hold an advantage if you could rely on snowclimbing over the scree/choss and ice holding the rock together... more >>

Comments: Thanks, its Italian. Too bad you can't see the grip, you'd love that BS. A brave and fierce unicorn was delicately carved into the rich checkered walnut handles.

One big gun has gotten me into enough trouble

Comments: $50 bounty paid to the first traverser of Section B, from Emma taking the ridge line over Gilpin, Block Top, Dallas, West Dallas and TO.

$100 for the complete traverse from Imogene Pass to Hayden Peak in a push.

A challenge for some beer money, an incentive for interest.

Comments: Forgive the knee and the lack of summit. The point of the pic is to show the giant cliff in the ridge (directly above the knee) between the East ridge of Mount Wilson and the West ridge of Gladstone. The East face of Mount Wilson also shown.

Comments: Is it possible to traverse across the summit of Dallas east to west, or vice versa? Anybody done that?

Comments: The couloir in the back rears to vertical before ending in a 15ft roof several hundred feet below the summit.

Comments: From ledges above the East ridge, Jon traversed to and led the stepped corner below him directly on the left skyline. A bold lead with little pro on 5mil static cord. The ledge above him is ~100ft directly above the top of the couloir.

Comments: BASE jumpers walk up the back side in 30 minutes from the parking lot. Hiking down the back and around is way faster and safer than rapping. The final rappel can stick your rope pretty good, too. Beware

Comments: Crux pitch is looong and uniformly small gear, soaked up #5 HB offset brassies. Very scarred. No C2 about it, pretty stiff, thought we. Big fall potential, but steep and clean. Depends on the size of your rack, l reckon. No fixed KBs as mentioned

Comments: Pictured here is Emma, a 13er on the same ridge, east of Dallas. Also on the right is Greenback Mountain and the north end of St Sophia Ridge.

"Don't let Stefan's modesty fool you. He just climbed The Diamond FROM BOULDER in 10 & 1/2 hrs, biking there and back. Great job Stefan & co. Inspiration for the rest of us mortals."

Comments: Good skiing conditions make for bad climbing conditions. The route is shaded and collects snow and would make for extended steep wallowing. A late spring ski situation where you climb alpine ice early and ski corn down would be tough, as its a loong climb up the couloir. The standard approach from Ouray up the summer road in Yankee Boy Basin provides easier ski access.

  • *Recommended approach: I skinned from the north (Ridgway) and stayed at the Ridgway Hut (part of the San Juan Hut System--a...
