Headed up to the hills with Gary Apostolou for our first trip into the hills together. It was good to finally get out. The plan was to see what we could get done around Montezuma, specifically on the peaks to the north of Webster Pass Road. But from the very start the weather seemed like it was going to play a role in how much we were going to be able to accomplish.

As we pulled into the lot we were met by 3 local dogs. Sam decided to join us for the day. I guess he was up for some peak bagging. We headed up the road and found the drainage that lead up to Santa Fe Peak. We made fair time upward and ended up skinning a decent section. With our eye to the west we kept watching the sky. We chatted about the weather and it seemed that with every step our ambitions decreased. Finally we just decided to head for Santa Fe and call it a day. The last short pitch above the saddle it was snowing pretty hard. The winds were howling and the prospect of electrical development was high on my mind....

I did the Sante Fe/Sullivan/Geneva/Landslide combo back in November and was accompanied by a black lab mix named Lucy that joined me in Montezuma (actually, she led the entire loop). I love the pic of the yellow lab looking over descent route.
