Yep!

I'd forgotten the northward protrusion. Once the slope steepens southward, I think people have been able to billygoat snow that connects with the rest of the south-side route.

Such a cool mini-range. Thanks!

Agreed that there's so much other cool stuff to do there that's unsung.

Yup, so much stuff if one is willing to set their sights "a little lower."

This little fella just across the way from Crestone Peak and Needle is barely 13k and I'd happily ski it again any day if there weren't so much other stuff to ski in the same neighborhood.

Is this the first ever two-page Ski Sickness Sanitarium thread?
