Long Description:
"Peak 10 is the last and highest of the numbered mountains of the Tenmile Range, near Breckenridge, Colorado. It is ranked at #178 (depending on the list you use!) of the highest Colorado mountains. It is known to some as a "Bi" (a Bicentennial Peak - one of the 200 highest in the state). Peak 10 offers wonderful views of the rest of the Tenmile Range to the south, the Mosquito Range to the South, the Gore Range to the North, and the Front Range to the East. As often, the lesser peaks have some of the best views!

The Tenmile Range has ten numbered peaks, 10 being the highest. The lower slopes of Peaks 7-10 comprise the popular Breckenridge ski area. The top of Peak 8 is the actual resort high point. The numbered peaks of the Tenmile are a very linear range of about 9 miles that create a wall of peaks only one mountain wide, towering above the towns of Breckenridge and Frisco. Peak 10 rises to 13,633 feet in anticipation of the rest of the range that rises in earnest to Quandary Peak., which reaches well above the 14,000 foot mark.

Peak 10 can be easily climbed with its higher neighbor, Crystal Peak. They are connected by a high saddle." (from (visit link) )
