13ers off of Independence Pass

Postby Dram1 » Fri Aug 10, 2012 7:35 pm

Hey guys,

So I'll be probably be passing over Independence Pass tomorrow and Sunday. I was just wondering, are there any short (maybe less than 5 miles) 13er hikes off or around the pass?

Peter Aitchison on the risks of rock climbing and mountaineering: "That's life, isn't it? We think the challenge and satisfaction you get from doing this is worth the risks."

"Respect the mountain. Train hard. Hope you can sneak up when it isn't looking."

"The mind is always worried about consequences, but the heart knows no fear. The heart just does what it wants."

^ Also that!

Most definitely. Going north, you can easily hike to two 13ers. The first one is UN 13,500 and the second one is Twining Peak. To get to the next 13er on that ridge, UN 13,545, there is class 3 climbing involved.
