Description

The 13,988' Grizzly Peak in the Sawatch Range near Independence Pass is surprisingly rugged for the Sawatch, and has one of the best moderate snow couloirs in the state. The couloir is even better to ski than it is to climb. There is a lot of steep rock on this peak as well, but it is probably all very crumbly.

Getting There

From Independence Pass (CO 82), head south on the very rough Lincoln Campground road - this is just east of the Grotto Walls climbing areas. 4WD or a 2WD you don't much care for is recommended. Park just past the Grizzly Reservoir at the marked Grizzly Lake trailhead after 6-7 miles. There is good free dispersed camping before and after the trailhead. The drive from the highway takes about 30-45 minutes with a 4WD.
