DescriptionThis makes a fun traverse from the summit of Trapezoid Peak. Exposed and fun low 5th class ridge climbing. Some loose rock but mostly quality traversing. Several towers are encountered. Some can be climbed, others are more easily bypassed on the climbers right side of the ridge. The last tower requires a 50 foot rappel (or what looked to be at least 5.8 downclimbing).
To make this a longer day, start at the North side of Hurd Peak, down the South ridge of Hurd, up class 3 to an unnamed summit, then over to Trapezoid. Great traverse with minimal approach.
