Description

Last October Kevin, Brian, and I hooked up for Snowmass Mountain, so we decided to try and get together for another trip this year.  We went back to the Ten Mile/Mosquito Range for a couple more Centennial Peaks.  We drove to the upper four-wheel-drive trailhead at 11,500' and climbed Atlantic Peak's west ridge, traversed north to Pacific Peak, and then descended Pacific's southwest face.  We didn't descend the west ridge of Pacific, because Brian brought his dog Mojo with.  The weather was fairly cooperative and we had a good day.
