 Grizzly - Lenawee - A-Basin Traverse   

I did this fun traverse on a whim a few weeks ago.

The full writeup is available online here:

For it is the ultimate wisdom of the mountains that we are never so much as we can be as when we are striving for what is beyond our grasp, and that there is no battle worth the winning save that against our own ignorance and fear.

That's a fun route in Winter too..     08/02/2010 18:04
Ya Jake, that's a fun route. I have done it in witer a few times. You have to watch out for the cornices after the SFB couloir. I once punched a leg through one of them.

Seems like it would be fun in winter...have to put it on the list!




you are fast     08/02/2010 19:23
faster than me, but I keep telling myself I'll get up there and doe a similar outing one day... One q: I've heard horror stories about restricted parking @ Loveland Pass (including towed cars). Did you have any problems?


RE: you are fast     08/02/2010 19:46
Oh, not fast, just stupid enough to not stop!

Anyway, I had no problems whatsoever. Seems like the parking lots atop the pass are fair game, although I think you can get ticketed if you park overnight there. But, I've had no problems before.

Good luck, and have fun on it if you go!
