|2015-07-18||Route: West Slopes via Broken Hand Pass
Info: Climbed Broken Hand Peak yesterday via South Colony lakes and would echo previous conditions reports for broken hand pass. There is still a snow field to ascend to access the top of Broken Hand Pass. We had microspikes and ice axes but crampons would have been nice. Outstanding view of the needle and peak from Broken Hand Peak!!
|2015-04-24||Route: NE Couloir
Info: The two NE facing sections of the couloir were great, the middle SE facing section was a bit firm but fun. We were able to ski to the lake. Classic CO line.
|2013-06-30||Route: SW slopes
Info: To supplement the other conditions reports of the Crestones with some photos... 1: Crux of the Broken Hand pass approach. The top of the snow (in shadows) is the crossover step onto rock with a quick move or two to surmount. 2: The Needle & Peak from the summit of Broken Hand Peak (BHP). 3: Humboldt‘s southern flanks and west ridge from the summit of BHP. 4: Milwaukee & Pico Aislado from the summit of BHP. The hike of BHP from the pass up the SW slopes was snow free and it‘s ready for flatlanders.
