 Breckenridge Resort Summits (Peak 7&8)  

Ever since I've 'snowboarded' down the runs on Peak 7 and Peak 8, I've thought about climbing to the summit. In summer of course, without any fun postholing adventures. I didn't find a lot of info on climbing them, but it seemed that the route should be fairly obvious once I get close enough. So that is what I did. I will attempt to convey my route as well as possible pitfalls on climbing these peaks.
While it wasn't a pristine environment, it was a unique experience in some ways, and it was a worthwhile outing. They are 'only' 12ers, but who cares? Check it out at the link below:

Here's a pic of Peak 10, 9, 8, and 7 from the Breck Gondola Parking lot around 9,600'. Peak 8 and Peak 7 are the two on the right side.

Next year I am planning on hitting Peak 9 and Peak 10 in a similar loop. Why not?

Nice job!

Another nice loop is to take the 4 oclock trail up all the way to the summit of Peak 8, and then hit 9 and 10, and take the fire road all the way back to town (or take wheeler trail for an even longer day). Its about 14 miles r/t. Cheers.
