Red Pk B - 13,189 feet
|Shades of Red|
Living in summit county, Red Peak B looms large. Along with Buffalo Mountain, its visible from just about anywhere in the county. Red Peak is a massive mountain, with several sub-summits and one of the gnarlier ridge lines in the area in the Red Diamond Ridge. There are also a variety of ski lines, ranging from wide open bowls to steep, tight couloirs. When I first moved to Breckenridge 2 years ago, I came up with a fun project to summit the peaks that I can see from my house. It was a fairly simple list, which included Buffalo, Baldy, Guyot, Peak 1, Red Mtn C, Red Peak A, Hoosier Ridge and Red Peak B. At the start of the year, I only had Red Peak B remaining and made it one of my main goals to get to the top of it this year. As of the 10th of September, I have completed my project with a ski of big eyes in may, and a hike to the true summit in september, and managed to see 2 different sides of the mountain in 2 different seasons.
