 Red Diamond Ridge   

Well, another Gore ridge run for those that like this kind of thing. It was a great day up on the Red Peak massif and felt good to get another special ridge run in again after a decent hiatus. If you decide to check it out, I hope you enjoy.

... my palms sweat! Another VERY nice ridge run, Mr. Chalk! Red Peak is one of the few Gore peaks I’ve done (from Red Buffalo Pass). Maybe in my next life, I’ll be able to do the ridge... Or not...

Brando, you forgot to include the pic I took of you from the other side of i70 buddy! Great you and J were able to get out and make it a good one! Sawyer’s gonna have all kinds of Gore beta when she starts checking these peaks and ridges off at age 4. Looking forward to Operation Eat Pizza and Hat Retrieval soon!


Jay & Dillon,

Thanks for your comments, my men. Congrats on your Red Peak summit, Jay! Dillon, yes please do send me that pic – I’m sure I can pick us out Sawyer will indeed have her hands full in da Gore. Pizza & Hat – its a date!

I’m ready to start seeing what this Gore range is all about...thank you for the excellent trip report.


I still want to ski Red

first. But maybe climb it later. Brandon, you always seem to be two steps ahead of the curve! Nice looking ridge, and not in the Sierras.


more obscure gore nonesense!

way to go team! what a sweet looking ridge and that dihedral looks awfully yummy.

A bit of a digression because I’m glad you brought him up: I have been struggling with this as of late as his name appears EVERYWHERE! Is there only one super badass Briggs? i.e. the Jackson Hole native who skied the Grand 1st. I see his name come up on Boulder Flatiron stuff all the time too...


Thanks ladies & Abe...

blazin’ Amy - you need to definitely check out some of the Gore. You won’t be disappointed.

Natalie - I’d like to ski it too, Natalie. We should set that up come Spring.

Abe - I know, man, absolutely nonsense! Now don’t hold me to it, but I believe this Bill Briggs is the ultrarunner Boulder speedster while the Teton Bill Briggs still lives up in JH.


I forgot to mention

that I did talk to Stan Wagon after we got sorta cliffed out thinking we were skiing Silver on Buffalo. We ended up in "Maximus Elvis" and I was trying to figure that part out Yeah, I believe that Bill Briggs made us look silly on Pagoda recently with his "bike to the TH and then free solo 5.6 ridge" in a fraction of time it took us. That sort of thing.


Very cool, Natalie

Yep, some hardcore old timers we have round these parts. All very inspiring.


I was waitin for this one!

Glad to see that it was a good day out, boys. I am continually amazed at the new ridges and adventures you guys are able to do out in the Gores. We were staring at this one, thinking of you guys as you did – glad it turned into a good day. And yes, you may be getting a bit more conservative in the old age, but is that really such a bad thing?


Thanks, Zambo!

I really didn’t even know you were on the Tenmile until Dillon texted me, so I glanced over your way a lot on the descent of Red’s south ridge. Appreciate the comment, buddy, and yes I do believe getting a bit more conservative in our old age is a good thing.
