Ascent Trip Report

Left Colfax Road,US 40/Bus I-70 at Heritage Road, which heads north from where Colfax bends between C-470 and I-70. Within seconds of turning onto Heritage, look for a lane on the left. If you pass a fire station, too far, turn around. Take lane to the large Apex Park lot.

I hiked the Apex Trail shortcut (hikers only) to the bridge across Lena Gulch and continued on Apex Trail to the Argos Trail. At the other end of Argos, I turned right onto Pick n Sledge and continued to ascend towards Indian. Approaching the base of 7214, I took a faint side trail to its summit. Faint trail continued on and rejoined Pick n Sledge. I crossed over Pick n Sledge at that point (saddle between Indian and 7214) and headed up slope towards Indian. This bushwhack was easy going. Summit of Indian had very limited views. 7214 offered unobstructed ones.
