Atlantic Peak Route Guide | A Great Ten-Mile 13er

The Mosquito and Ten Mile Ranges are home to a number of enjoyable peaks, including this Atlantic Peak Route Guide. Located just north of Quandary Peak, a popular fourteener, this centennial 13er is one of the highest peaks in the state. Compared to 14er routes, you’ll find plenty of solitude on this route, especially once you pass the alpine lakes along the way. If you plan to do this climb in the spring or early summer, bring crampons and an ice axe for the headwall crux of the route. Plan your visit with my Atlantic Peak Route Guide below.
