Trip Report

Pasque is another low, front range mountain that has been on my radar for quite a few years now. A few weeks ago I managed to ramble up Isola and Monad in very little snow and pretty good views, and decided there and then that it was time to hike up Pasque - a mountain just to the north. A few weeks passed before Phil texted me that he wanted to do a scramble on Sunday, November 27. We were initially interested in something a bit tougher but settled on Pasque after the weather forecast proved a bit unstable and a dump of snow came through the Rockies on Friday.

Vern, I could be wrong, but the main body of text mentions that you kept going straight along the track, instead of turning left at the ribbons. The image caption below that, on the other hand, has, "where we simply kept going on the obvious road instead of turning right at the ribbons." I figure that the image caption should read 'left' instead of 'right'. I hope this is right -)

Hey Henry, yes you are correct! Thanks for spotting the error - it is fixed now.
