 An exercise in prepositions - up, down, over, around, and through     

I figure I may as well post this, as I've already done the work on my blog. More importantly, there aren't many trip reports on the northwest ridge, which was my initial ascent route. Kroenke Lake is pretty cool!!!

You should smudge- or blacken-out your license plate, dude.

Great report!

Get Lead good man!

Want to run San Luis? I'm just scared I might be too slow for you.

Hub - any time. It looked like a fun loop, and it didn't disappoint.

Art - eh. There are some pretty fast dudes out there who just don't choose to run in the mountains. If they did...wow.

Matt - if I want to survive at Leadville, I don't have much choice other than to do stuff like this.

Terry - duly noted.

Abe - I ran San Luis back in '10. Beautiful scenery below treeline!
