3/9/2010 - 9270, Beasley Hills, Big Baldy, 8754 & Booger Red Hill

From Fort Collins, I drove south on I-25, west on US-24, south on County Road 1, south on County Road 11 and east on County Road 347 to a BLM trailhead. I hiked north to the west ridge of 8754 and followed the ridge to the summit. I descended 8754’s northeast ridge, the climbed up Big Baldy. I descended slightly south of my ascent route.

I drove up County Road 11 to the BLM gate in High Park. I walked east along the road until the road turned south. From here I traveled cross-country to the summit of Booger Red Hill.

I drove north on County Road 11, north on County Road 1, west on Highland Meadows and north on Floresta Drive until its end. I hiked north to Beasley Hills’ east ridge, which I followed to the summit. From here I got a great view of Dog Head, which I was hoping to free solo. However, the amount of snow dissuaded me from doing so.

I drove west on County Road 100 to its highpoint. I hiked northwest climbing many rocky points en route to the summit of 9270.
