Golden Bear Peak (Peak 13010)

This peak is between Coon Hill and Hagar, on the Continental Divide N of the Loveland Ski area. It seems to be known as Golden Bear Peak. I've often thought of it as tri-county peak since three counties, Grand, Summit, and Clear Creek come together just N of the summit. On May 25, 2010, Jonathan Kriegel and I climbed it from Dry Gulch; very straightforward. We skied the E Face, dropping in just N of the summit. Conditions were firm, but excellent for skiing. This is a nice alternative to Hagar when either there are other parties on it, or one wants a slightly shorter day. The views of Snoopy (aka Citadel) from 13010 are outstanding. I did not take my camera this day, so no pics. But here is a shot taken from Hagar area a few days later. The line we skied is dead center of photo.

On May 22, 2013, Rich Seeley and I skied Golden Bear and conditions (and views) were fine.
