On Saturday, May 19, 2018, Wietse and I finally completed a nice front range hiking / scrambling loop that I've been eyeing up for several years. The loop starts with an pleasant hike / easy scramble up Porcupine Ridge before leading over moderate terrain to a few more summits west of Tiara Peak. From just north of Tiara's summit the route ascends to Boundary Peak along an undulating Boundary Ridge before finishing off with a nice moderate scramble over Midday and Midnight Peaks. We finished our loop a bit differently than most folks do, choosing to descend easy and very pleasant slopes back into North Porcupine Creek and rejoining our approach.
