Description

The five of us decided to try a quick jaunt in the Mosquito Range.  We left the Four Mile Creek Road and eventually made our way to the cirque below Horseshoe Mountain.  We geared up and followed a set of kicked steps most of the way up the Boudoir Couloir before topping out and enjoying a relatively clear day in central Colorado.  This was a fun snow climb worth the effort.
