Attention site users! On December 31, 2020, the company whose platform and hosting service we have used to build this site will discontinue their service. That means NO MORE SITE unless immediate action is taken. The ultimate goal will be to have the site rebuilt in another platform. In the interim, we plan to transfer this site to a "static" page where all the information will still be available but we will be unable to administrate the site. The ultimate goal will cost tens of thousands of dollars in professional costs. The immediate "static" solution will still cost several thousand. We are on retirement/SS income and do not have the personal resources to build this site again. To keep this site going, we may have to monetize it in some way such as required membership or allow advertising and you know how annoying that can be. So, if you have survived Covid-19 and still have steady income, please consider a donation in any amount now. For past contributors, thank you so much for doing so!
UN13,041 A, aka: West Partner Peak is a mostly Class 2 ascent with a little bit of easy Class 3 boulder/rock scrambling near the summit. The trailhead, located near the town of Vail is easily accessible to any passenger car. Done alone, the peak can be completed in a single day, or even if paired with East Partner, however, a backpack trip up along Pitkin Creek to Pitkin Lake and establishing a base camp can provide access to a total of six, 13er summits in the Gore Range and allow more time to enjoy a beautiful Gore Range setting.
