"Hiked a Armstrong, Gothics, Pyramid, Sawteeth loop from the Ausable Club. I ascended up from Beaver Meadow falls and then over to Armstrong. The clouds at this point were dancing in and out and when I reached Gothics the summit was completely socked in. I sat there and enjoyed some companionship with a few newly made friends and just when we about to leave the clouds lifted, as if someone had hit a lightswitch, leaving us with an amazing view. I continued down over Pyramid and up to Sawteeth before dropping down the Weld Trail and on a side trip to Rainbow Falls. " - Right-On, Oct 10, 2018
"Successful Lower Great Range loop, with a couple wild and crazy guys! Rocks were a little wet from rain the night before, and the cloud cover stole some summit views, but when we could see the foliage was on point! Being an aspiring 46er is hard when I live in CO, but I’m hoping to knock a few off a year until I get it done!" - LGH-Dan, Oct 14, 2017
"Gnarly day gettin pitted with the bros given her a full send on lower and upper wolfjaw, armstrong, pyramid, gothics, and sawteeth. Not many views due to the clouds but all in all a righteous day. " - LGH-Topple, Oct 14, 2017
"So many "false summits" via the scenic loop. Gorgeous fall day with temps in the mid-70s. Ppemty of outlooks over the Ausable lakes and Indian Head. Afterwards, summited Gothics via epic views on Pyramid Peak." - heyjudeee, Sep 23, 2017
"Nice sunny day, we headed out early along the lake trail. We took the scenic route up along the lake, taking our time. Was a worthy challenge, much like avalanche pass had it gone uphill. The extra few miles were worth it. We debated strongly about Pyramid and Gothics, but realizing that we would get them both on another day, decided to head back. After a short visit to rainbow falls, we made our way back to the car. My third trip down the lake road, was sunnier and far more enjoyable that the previous two." - Kazmuglin, Jul 24, 2016
