Great Basins Combo

Engaged in Climbing

Tim has wanted to climb Pigeon and Turret since he first saw them years ago, but Pigeon and Turret are big peaks deep in the Weminuche.  Just getting into Ruby Creek at the base of the peaks is a big day.  The weather didn’t look great but looked like it would offer us a window to climb the peaks.  Sure enough we got rained on hiking in and out of Ruby Creek but were blessed with only sun on the climbing day.  Hiking out we figured we ascended around 9,800′ in the three days.

Great trip Tim!

Below are some photos of our trip.
