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!
A little more forgiving than Cassi Peak, UN13,260 B ("Golden Tops" on Mountain Handbook) when climbed in combination with Cassi will offer a little respite from the relentless boulders & rocks found on Cassi. The NE ridge is a Class 2 walkup, still with no tundra but more of a path through the rock and not so many boulders. A backpack trip is likely to obtain this summit, however it's possible for strong parties to combine this summit with Cassi and even Precarious as a day hike from Gothic, either by way of Copper Lake or Rustler Gulch.
