Description

Scott and I went up to Silverthorne, Colorado, and climbed the Silver Couloir on Buffalo Mountain.  We went up the Silver Couloir and came down the standard route.  It's a long climb snow climb on a peak I had seen numerous times but never climbed or hiked.  It was a good weather day.  The couloir is on the north side of the peak, so the snow was set up nicely.  All of these photos are from Scott.
