|2015-09-12||Route: Obstruction+Columbia from the east
Info: Clean and dry. Photo shows location of the memorial plaque in case covered by snow or rocks with Kitty Kat Carson on the left. See report for Obstruction Peak if coming from Humboldt saddle.
|2012-06-03||Route: Bears Playground
Info: No notable snow. Deadfall on both the old 4WD trail and the new Humboldt trail is easily negotaited. Several route descriptions suggest staying on the N/NW side of the jagged ridge from Humboldt‘s saddle to Bear‘s Playground. We found staying on the ridge proper more straightforward; certainly more enjoyable. Generally stay right (NE) when ascending Kitty Kat (dumb name; sigh). Use trails abound. Obviously, employ your own route-finding discretion, but as a rule the use trails have the right idea. The view to Kit Carson Peak revealed snow in the Avenue in inconvenient locations. Broken Hand Pass also still has snow. Picture 1: Bear‘s Playground to Kitty Kat Carson Picture 2: Gully up Kitty Kat Picture 3: Kit Carson and the Avenue
