Bear Creek Spire (13,720)

No shortage of peaks to bag here, Bear Creek Spire dominates the head of Little Lakes Valley. The Northeast Ridge (left of the sun/shade N Buttress) is spectacular 4th class ending on the unforgettable summit block!

Laurel Mountain 11,812

A great day for a morning climb up this amazing face, the northeast gully takes the center of the face, through the prominant red band and to the red saddle left of the summit. Class 4 scrambling on this odd but solid, colorful schist rock gains you 4200ft of elevation and a panoramic summit. This route was first climbed in 1930!
