Description [Suggest Change]
This magnificent sub-range of the San Juans runs roughly from west to east and contains some of the best mountaineering one could hope for. Electric Peak stands at the western end, while the Guardian guards the eastern end as well as its westerly neighbors, Silex and Storm King, which offer 1500 foot steep north faces. On the western end, the south face of Graystone has a most amazing overhanging concave alpine face.
Getting There [Suggest Change]
My preference is to take the train in to Elk Park and do the leisurely hike to the Beaver Ponds, then do the grunt up to the basin between Vestal/Arrow or the Trinities the next day. Or if I'm just there for the splendid North Ridge of Arrow, stop at the lower meadows.
