 Riding the Rockinghorse in The Gore Playground  

Linked up with Corey Dobson for a traverse of the Rockinghorse Ridge on the Gore's main spine. Started at Pitkin Creek TH, gained West Partner (Peak U), summited Rockinghorse, Peak P, then reverse traversed over to East Booth Pass and ran out Booth Falls TH. The beta from jbchalk and lordhelmut was great. Thought it could be complemented by another perspective of non-climbers without ropes and harnesses that were not out to tackle every spire along the ridge. Hopefully I don't upset the Gore Gods by providing the gpx. Took us a little under 6 hours roundtrip.

Nice report man! Another classic day in the Gore. It's been fun catching the Gore "bug" and stoked to get back in there with you and the other boys next summer already!
