From the south end of Breckenridge, drive 2 miles south on Colorado 9. Turn right on Spruce Creek Road. There is a sign here that says "The Crown". Stay right up a small hill and then left at an intersection. There are several side roads in this area. Stay on the main road and drive 1.2 miles (from Highway 9) to the Spruce Creek trailhead at 10,400’. There is a large parking area here.
This is a long, difficult, Class 3 route; If you’re looking for an easier Class 3 in the area, try Father Dyer’s East Ridge.
Plenty of tedious climbing is behind you, but it’s not over - Photo #21. Continue along the ridge to reach another prominent point - Photo #22. Keep scrambling (Photo #24), downclimb some tough rock (Photo #25) and pass over one last point (Photo #26) to reach the saddle before the summit of Father Dyer - Photo #27. Walk along the saddle, begin climbing toward the top (Photo #28) and rock-hop up the final pitch (Photo #29 and Photo #30) to reach the summit - Photo #31. Photo #32 is a close-up of the ridge between Helen and Father Dyer.
From the summit of Father Dyer, hike west along the ridge to Crystal Peak - Photo #33 and Photo #34. Rock-hop (Photo #35) down to the saddle between the two peaks and hike the final 350’ to the summit - Photo #36, Photo #37 and Photo #38. Descend Crystal Peak’s Northeast Ridge to the Wheeler trail, at 11,400’ in lower Crystal Creek. Turn right (south) on the Wheeler Trail and hike 0.7 mile back to your starting point on the south end of the Aqueduct road.
The ridge between Helen and Father Dyer involves plenty of Class 3 scrambling, including a few sections where you’ll encounter some Class 4. With careful route-finding, you should be able to keep the difficulty at Class 3, albiet difficult Class 3.
