Info: While stationed at the aid station on the north side of Hope Pass, covering a portion of the Leadville 100 for my Forest Service job, I decided to make a charge up Quail. Hope Pass can be reached by good trails either from the North (Willis Gulch TH) or from the South (Sheeps Gulch TH). The trail from Willis is longer but not as steep as from Sheeps. Once on the saddle there are eroded social trails up Quails west ridge and the scree and dirt is very loose.
