Mount Guyot Snow Climb

    Rate this Adventure 5 miles 2500 ft gain  - Out-and-Back Trail

    Added by Kyle C

    A moderate snow climb up to a summit with expansive views of South Park and Breckenridge.

    From Jefferson follow 35 north to 54 and drive up 54 as far as possible ending a few miles before Georgia pass.  Depending on the snowpack and drifts on the unplowed road, you could hike as few as 5 miles round trip or as many as 10. If the snow blocks you from driving past Michigan Creek Campground it might be worth it to turn back and take the first left and follow that road as far as possible.  From there you can take a snowmobile trail to the base of the climb.

    At the base of the mountain follow the easiest path up towards a rocky ridge until you get to a wide snowfield.  Here there is some avalanche potential. If it is deemed safe, go up the snow slope (axe recommended) to a corniced ridgeline which you can then follow for a few hundred yards to the summit.

    From the summit enjoy the view and then back down. There are a few lines to ski from the top if you happen to bring those along!
