|Peak:||"Electric Pass Peak" (13er)|
|Route:||Electric Pass Trail|
|Date of Info:||07/10/2016|
The route to the summit of Electric Pass Peak is 99.9% snow free. There is a small 8' long section of snow that you can step through easily just before the pass at 13,500'......and even that part should go away very soon with the high temps. No need for any traction.
Grover's 2 Cents: This is a great little peak in the Elk Range! I highly recommend this peak to anyone who wants to see the Elk Range without getting into the loose and nasty rocks that make up these beautiful mountains. I was highly impressed of the view from this perch. You can see Castle, Cathedral, Pyramid, the tops of The Bells, Snowmass & Capitol. Very straightforward hike too, as there is a well defined trail all the way.
