Trip Report

My first ascent of Midnight Peak was well before it became the very popular front range peak that it is nowadays. Way back in October of 2010 I enjoyed a pretty nice fall hike from the Baldy Pass approach. My second ascent was slightly more tiring as was from a slightly different angle too!
