Summit County, Colorado; Gore Range


The compelling east face of North Tenmile Peak (aka West Deming).

I include here some lines that are not strictly in Summit County, but take off from summits that are on or very close to the county line or start from trailheads in the county.

The southern group of Buffalo, Deming, Red, Rain, and Keller are very easy to get to, as one starts from either Frisco or Silverthorne on well-maintained trails (Meadow Creek, South Willow Creek, Willowbrook). Peaks deeper in the Gore are notoriously difficult to reach.
