Trip Report

After a relatively short day on Razors Edge Peak the day before (which was climbed with a migraine), I found myself in the mood for a nice long solo outing on Sunday, May 31 2015. Bluerock Mountain has been on my list of peaks to scramble for many years already, and this particular day seemed like the perfect one to attempt it. I was hoping for snow in the steep crux gully and packed my light crampons and ax just in case.

hello I saw your nicepic's and I would like do that hike,l just have a question, do you think, is a good hike to do with kids 10-11 yrs old? did you see any bear or cougar? thnaks for your info.

I think this could be done with a 10-11 year old but it is a long day so they should be OK with that. Also the crux is a bit exposed.
