Berthoud to Roger’s Pass Traverse

 

After the successful Ten Mile Traverse in the summer of 2006, we decided to traverse the Continental Divide from Berthoud Pass to Rollins Pass.  We hiked with Chris, Charles, Peter and Eric.  Along the way we summitted Colorado Mines Peak, Mt Flora (13146’), Breckenridge Peak, Witter Peak (12884’), Mt Eva (13140’), Parry Peak (13391’), Mt Bancroft (13250) and James Peak (13294’).  We did not make it all the way to Rollins Pass as planned because of a looming storm: at one point, we were not getting much more than a 1 or 2 count between lightening and thunder.  From the summit of James, we headed down the Ute trail and Roger’s Pass.  Even with the weather, we had an incredible day in the mountains, bagging 8 peaks in 16 miles and ~6000’ of elevation gain.
