Tenmile Peak 12,933′ Southeast Slopes 7/3/2011

Published by at 12:47 AM under 12ers,Colorado,Skiing Trip Reports

Met up with my son’s, best friend’s dad for a nice ski of Tenmile Peak. 2 days before the Miner’s Creek road opened so we rallied for a nice 4×4 run to the high trailhead. Getting any more sleep at this point was a real help. Starting to get really burnt. We took the trail to the 1st clearing and left the trail for the ridge. The ridge was steep but pretty straightforward. We made decent time to the top. The very last part of the ridge was a little spicy with nice scrambling.

The slope was a bit sun cupped and a bit firm for the 1st 200′ but after that it was just nice corn. This was a fun face and a fun line. Great getting out with you Peter, I guess the season will never end :)
