Not sure why this loop isn't a CO run classic! Runnable terrain, tough climbs, amazing views, you know you are " out there" but still bump into the occasional backpacker every few miles, really has a ton packed into it! Had a great day out there! Time was slowed by the recent 2 day snow storm that his 9/8-9/9 leaving some lingering inches on the back side of the pass at miles 8-12 with some slick ice between the rocks. Overall amazing route!
