Various routes are described, I'm looking for suggestions, having not explored the area yet (I guess I have to leave SOMETHING to my imagination!!)

Ah... going up Little Slide... gotcha.

Right now... I'd go up Horse Creek Canyon.
Mainly on account I just love Spiller Canyon.

(unfortunately there is no registry atop Stanton... otherwise you could write
Moooozie wuz ear) (chick-on wuz der last yr)
(if you go up Virginia ewe can see my name and a rock I left behind)

Anyway, up Horse Creek.. then up Matterhorn... I'm fairly certain that route
should be just fine and dandy. From there you can scope the rest out...

But what dew eye nose? Eye just bird.

A bird that's flown up a lot more terrain in that area than I have! Might just check it out this weekend a bit, even if it's just to explore...

Mucho tanks, birdie.

Whut? Yew no Dew already?

(could not talkie GW into Twin Lakies Trip so we dew Cherry Creek Canyon insteads)
(okey... I lie... butthead billy left me at home to take care o dat kitty cats)
(Larry got to go though... gimme break)
(he sez if you likey granite o my garsh... saaaaaa weeeet!)
(you best like brushy too dough) (we go up da reeever)

Never done da Fingers so you best lookie at Secor.

Matt from MuleBurro Pass : Bill-e-boy went from Burro straight up the ridge to
the top and then came down the scree field back down. It's been a few years though.
Some class 3 stuff from what he remembers but nothing too difficult. The scree field is class 2
but what a pain in the rumpy roast that is going up. The ridge is all rockies. Fun stuff.

Have fun (eye nose u will)

Most excellent, my feathered delight. I'd give you a big kissie but that whole big-nose to beak thing just wouldn't work.

And, oh no... I NEVER have fun. Make a point of not having fun. In the ugliest mountains ever. Every weekend. It's horrible, I tell you... Rolling on floor laugh
