big_gRoute Climbed: East Ridge and traverse to Challenger  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 6, 2003


Kit is an impressive mountain. Got to love that rock! Made that surprising traverse over from Columbia. Looks like suicide but stays at class 3 somehow. Enjoyed myself immensely and did not get rained on until down by Willow Lake. Whoo hoo!

Started at 2:50 in the morning, climbed Humbolt, traversed the ridge to Bear's playground, climbed the centennial 13er and then Kit Carson. Long day but excellent climb. One day will add the Crestones and do 5 peaks in one day.

Kit CarsonRoute Climbed: Outward Bound Coulier (Willow Lake) Date Climbed: April 2002  Sucess!
The Outward Bound Coulier is located just south of the main Kit Carson summit on the east side of the mountain. This wide coulier ascends between Kit & Kat Carson and when in good condition is a great climb, and probably one of the best snow climbs on Kit Carson Peak. We summited Kat Carson then went on to summit Kit Carson and finally concluded on Challenger Point. Then an icy but nice 2000 foot glaciade was in order off of the north slopes of Challenger Point. This was my second summit on both Kit Carson and Challenger Point.

Beautiful weather. Stayed on the summit a couple of hours just enjoying it. Met some other climbers and we took a wrong turn into the Spanish Creek basin on the descent and had to climb back up, but it was fun.

Nice climb. Final ridge to Challenger Point exposed but fun. Not too bad from Challenger over to summit of Kit thanks to the convenient ledge on the South of Kit Carson. Camped previous night at one of the lakes to the west.

climbcoloradoRoute Climbed: South Colony Lakes  Sucess!


I climbed Kit Carson and Challanger Point from the upper Colony Lake. It was a long but nice hike with a exciting down climb from Kat Carson!

ClydeLovettRoute Climbed: Spanish Basin (south) Date Climbed: 8/23/01  Sucess!


The route I took to the summit is rather exoitic, but quite beautiful. It begins in private land and crosses a ridge of Challenger to the Spanish basin, beneath the Prow of Kit Carson and up from the South.

From the Kit Carson Summit my friend Paul and I went to the Challenger Summit and downclimbed the face of Challenger (5.4) and rejoined our ascent route.

A long day of 15+ miles and 2 summits.
