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.

North to South is significantly harder sans major bypasses.The traverse encompasses 9 named towers, from South to North: Cancer, Capricorn, the Gemini Twins, Taurus, Scorpio, Libra, Sagittarius, and Aries. While the traverse only encompasses the Zodiacs, which can be accessed from either basin to the East or West, some may argue a ridge traverse begins and end with a summit. Red Mtn.
