Description 

The Gore Range is one of the most untouched and unused areas in Colorado. The mountains often have long approaches, unpredictable weather, and require a full alpine skill set to safely access.


Getting There 

The range can be accessed from Silverthorne, Vail, and up CO Hwy 9 to Heeney. There are many trails that access this area and are well maintained. However, once you leave the trail, all bets are off as to what you will find.

I headed up the Pitkin drainage betaless (on purpose) with the intent of gaining the ridge and going whichever way looked most interesting. Westward had the craggiest terrain, so that's the way I went. Once I saw the summit registers, I realized I had done the Partner Peaks Traverse (aka V to U Peaks traverse). Editorial Comment:It takes a lot to hold my interest on a class 3 traverse, and any route where 75+% of it consists of class 1-2 isn't very fun in my book.
