|Peak:||Mt. Buckskin (13er)|

Road is closed at Paris Mill which adds ~5 easy miles to the round trip. Road up to Kite Lake is packed down by snowmobile tracks. I turned south towards Buckskin before reaching the summer TH at Kite Lake and shaved off about a mile from the trip. Needed floatation until the windblown ridge around 12,500'. After I hit the ridge is was straight forward. I used microspikes on a short section of summit ridge and on the descent, and it came in handy.
I somehow managed to not take a single picture of the route, but here are a few pics of Democrat and Kite Lake from various points on Buckskin
