You many need to break your own track as you head straight up the basin on this route.

Jared Brin
Type: Backcountry or Sidecountry

Description

Drive toward Guanella Pass from Georgetown, and after a few switchbacks turn right onto the dirt road to the Waldorf Mine (this will be easier in a4x4). Continue up to the mine, or until the road is blocked by snow, usually there are drifts over the road a couple miles below the mine until June. From the mine, head up the obvious basin in front of you to the summit of Mt. Edwards.
