Treasurevault Mountain  
Condition Updates  
Route: Loop: Kuss > Mosquito > Treasurevault
Posted On: 2020-07-03, By: wildlobo71
Info: Road is clear to the London Mine TH; it's got some depth of running water in places and is more suited for a good 4WD vehicle with clearance. Hiked London Mountain to the saddle of Tweto/Treasurevault before weather came in. Entire loop is clear of snow on trail - lots of good cornices remain and some snowfields but the exit basin between Tweto and Treasurevault is clean of snow, but wet. Enjoy!

Info: Descent to saddle from Mosquito had about 6 inches of snow covering unstable scree. I stuck to the ridge, wearing snowshoes. Snow on ridge was consolidated. Descent from Treasurevault towards Mt Tweto and down the basin had considerably less snow than when I was here last month. Snowshoes were overkill for about a mile of the route down but I wore them anyway to avoid taking them off and putting them back on again. Snowshoes were helpful and I was glad I wore them.

Info: By far the easiest peak of the Kuss/Mosquito/Treasurevault loop. Descend Mosquito's steep and extremely loose (sometimes practically skiing through scree) north slopes to the saddle. Gawk at the old mining equipment here. Then continue north up Treasurevault's also-loose-but-not-as-bad slopes. You'll see there are a lot of trails snaking and twisting up the slopes, just link whatever you want or go direct, it's about the same amount of effort either way. In fact, sometimes the trails are more loose due to the amount of scree vs the talus everywhere else. 
Route: from Mosquito Pass

Info: Mosquito Pass is currently accessible from the Leadville side. Groomed from the winter closure to the plateau before the first switchback (12,400). Patchy snow beyond that, with 2 large snowslopes that are easily avoidable. Once at the pass, the ridge is completely windblown in both directions.

Route: Mosquito Pass
Posted On: 2011-09-19, By: IHikeLikeAGirl
Info: Did Repeater, Mosquito, and Treasurevault from the pass. A few inches of snow made the talus a bit slick. Descending Mosquito took some care, but no traction or ice axe was needed. Came back along a mining road (skirting the summits). Some snow and mud on road, but a pleasant hike with great views. Came up Mosquito Pass Road from the east. Road only had a dusting of snow and little ice on it near the top. Went up in a Ford Ranger with good clearance and tires. Could not have made it in my Jeep Liberty. Were a few small boulders on the road, but was able to squeeze by. At least 4 other vehicles and 2 ATVs made it up as well (all with high clearance).
