Description 

South Saint Vrain Peak hosts three ice and mixed routes mentioned in Jack Roberts "Colorado Ice" and several more routes. The climbs can be found at the end of a 6-7 mile approach lending to a nice wilderness atmosphere and few if any other parties. The routes lie on the South side of South Saint Vrain Peak at around 11,000 feet and are likely in best shape around February. Routes are known as "A Dog Day Afternoon", "Every Dog Has Its Day", and "Too Much Dawg Gawn Trouble"; however, I don't know which is which, so I'll assign numbers for now. Anyone with more information about these routes should feel free to contact me or add to this information.


Getting There 

Park at the Peaceful Valley winter trailhead and travel west toward the Saint Vrain Glaciers. The routes can be seen on the right after about six to seven miles. The trail is mostly flat and skis are useful.

CONDITION REPORT 

Skied out and climb the far left climb yesterday 2/11/07. 1 pitch of ice and 2 of snow. There is more ice higher on the route, but it is very thin with possible avalanche danger getting up to it. The route to the far right was very rotten looking. Conditions now are not worth the ski out unless your looking for a good adventure.
