Hiking to Mount Superior & Monte Cristo

Mount Superior & Monte Cristo

 Elevation: 11132  Feature: Peak
Notes: These 2 peaks are so close together that I debated whether or not I should give each their own pages. Most trip reports and trail descriptions include both, so I decided to combine them. The peaks require mountaineering skills.
