Description

South Saint Vrain Peak hosts three ice and mixed routes mentioned in Jack Roberts "Colorado Ice" and several more routes. The climbs can be found at the end of a 6-7 mile approach lending to a nice wilderness atmosphere and few if any other parties. The routes lie on the South side of South Saint Vrain Peak at around 11,000 feet and are likely in best shape around February. Routes are known as "A Dog Day Afternoon", "Every Dog Has Its Day", and "Too Much Dawg Gawn Trouble"; however, I don't know which is which, so I'll assign numbers for now. Anyone with more information about these routes should feel free to contact me or add to this information.

Getting There

Park at the Peaceful Valley winter trailhead and travel west toward the Saint Vrain Glaciers. The routes can be seen on the right after about six to seven miles. The trail is mostly flat and skis are useful.
