To supplement the other conditions reports of the Crestones with some photos...

1: Crux of the Broken Hand pass approach. The top of the snow (in shadows) is the crossover step onto rock with a quick move or two to surmount.

2: The Needle & Peak from the summit of Broken Hand Peak (BHP).

3: Humboldt‘s southern flanks and west ridge from the summit of BHP.

4: Milwaukee & Pico Aislado from the summit of BHP.

The hike of BHP from the pass up the SW slopes was snow free and it‘s ready for flatlanders.

Broken Hand and Crestolita are my newest Sangres wishlist peaks. The scrambles look awesome.



Cool shot

I hear you ran into a mad dude while in Sand Creek...


Slow dude?

With the pot belly? Yeah, he claimed to have done a few peaks in the area, but I'm pretty sure he just sat around at the lake all day punting little marmot bastards.


I'm confused

I'm a slow dude (both mentally and while on my feet) with a pot belly. But I'm pretty sure I didn't see you nor do I punt marmots, bastards or not.
Sitting around a lake sounds cool though!
