The route starts out on a windscoured face that is a NW aspect, but is often wind loaded and unsafe. the top of the decent is a cliff band, with a windloaded gully. there are two entrances to the gully, which is about 300' long. The mouth of the gully opens up into floral park fairway, which is a steep treed run.[more]
Silverton Area has some of the most consistent snow in Colorado. They get it early, and they get it late. Storms love to hit the Silverton/Red Mountain Pass Area. The resort itself is almost a backcountry experience, as they recommend going guided. They also have helicopter access, and unguided days at the resort...........
How to Get There
Western Slope. It is a long drive from the denver area, but once you are in the area, there is relatively easy access to the larger peaks.
