Featured Descent

Colorado » Front Range

The Knuckles

The descent for the Knuckles is extremely dangerous.  Do not go there unless you have experience with rocky terrain, steep runs, and variable snowpacks.  This part of Berthoud is prone to avalnaches and slides due to a rocky bed surface, limited anchors, and the solar activity that this area gets.  The entrance is not visible until you are right on top of the roll over, and very often people end up in the wrong spot.  The knuckles are defined by the steep rollover, above rocky chutes.  There is very little distance between treeline and the start of the rocky area.  Use caution coming out of tree line, and make sure to test the slope for stability.  If the snow slides, you will be dragged over sharp rocks and down a chute, into trees.  Alternative Routes are down the shoulder to the NW or to the South down High Tail Trees or Shop Chutes.  Exits for this descent are either the first turn off, or down the valley further to 7 mile.
