As with all of Brent and my adventures, they begin with a simple text. Neither of us had any particular mission in mind so we came up with a short list and weighed our options. It came down to a chute near A-basin, a line off Quandary Peak and Buffalo Mountain. We really could have done any of the three but with Buffalo Mountain towering over I-70, I had been eyeing it for some time as I had been driving passed it on the regular for a few years now. And so the goal was set and the planning had begun.
After a few days away from the mountains to enjoy Memorial Day Weekend in Denver with some great people, it was time to get back out there. Although I hadn't booked my flight back to New York, I knew I was down to my last few days in Colorado and I wanted to make the best of them. Having tagged my first 14er not even two weeks prior I figure why not go for another one?
