Description

Peak L is a premier scramble peak in the Gore. The summit is distinct, scenic, and memorable.

The SE ridge route (class 4) is well documented and is typically accessed from Upper Slate Lake. Generally, 2-4 days are allocated for the approach, climb, and return, though daytrips are possible for the fit and also from the Brush Creek TH.

The Gore Thumb traverse (5.0) consists of Peak L's north ridge, the Gore Thumb, Guyselman, Peak N, and Peak O. The route weaves around and over gendarmes, with easiest passage usually on the west side. The route is typically done as a daytrip from the Brush Creek TH. Either climb L from Upper Slate, or gain the traverse via Guyselman's E Ridge and out-and-back L.

Getting There

Access Upper Slate Lake from the Brush Creek TH (10 mile approach). Turn left off from CO Hwy 9 at a paved road by a cemetery 15 miles north of Silverthorne. After a couple hundred feet, turn left on a high clearance, eroded, 4WD road a further 2.5 miles to the TH.

Alternative access is via the Rock Creek or Boulder THs.
