Crystal Peak, elevation 13,859 ft (4,224 m), is a summit in the Tenmile-Mosquito Range of central Colorado. The peak is in the Arapaho National Forest southwest of Breckenridge.

Approach Routes[edit]

Most climbers approach Crystal Peak from the east, in particular via the Crystal Lakes basin. This approach, a pleasant hike, follows jeep trails until treeline and Lower Crystal Lake. Four wheel drive vehicles can generally make it this far. A trail on the north side of the lake takes climbers to Upper Crystal Lake, where gentle scree slopes provide access to the ridges north of the summit.[citation needed]
