EXTREMELY difficult traverse of all 10 peaks in the Ten Mile range. Very technical class 3 scrambling most of the way between peaks 1-4, with several spots I would consider class 4. Did this in some pretty fierce wind and snow and had to bail out after peak 3 to the valley to the east and loop back around to the start. Very disappointing, but you don't mess with Mother Nature. This is a serious hike for serious hikers. Do your research and know what you are getting yourself into. Amazing hike though. I will be back for the rest of it in August when the snow has subsided.

Started at Copper Mountain. Somewhat sketchy in the beginning as you traverse I-70 over a street bridge with a pedestrian section, only then you can see the trailhead. You hear I-70 noise for about a mile, but once in the wilderness the trail is all worth it. Lots of water crossing, and mud-fields, so bring your waterproof shoes. Constantly (strenuously) ascending for 5 miles until you reach lost lake which is a marvel. Continue for a mile up the Uneva pass which offers views to both sides. There is a trail leading to your right for about 0.4 mile but its a dead-end. The trail crossing down into ten-mile is very difficult to discern as it switches back from the main-trail on the top of the pass. We didn't go through with the descent into ten-mile as we could see large snow-fields covering the trail on steep slopes and dark clouds coming up and didn't want to risk it, hence returned the same way for a total of 12.8 miles. We saw NOBODY on the trail. Start really early to avoid the weather risk on the pass.
