Wild Basin is a far less visited area of Rocky Mountain National Park, but only because it is farther away from the touristy town of Estes Park and approaches are long. At 13,310, Mt Alice doesn't receive much attention compared to it's neighboring 14er Longs Peak. But after seeing Alice's East Face you'll surely be inspired and quickly realize the potential the area holds.
