Could you elaborate on the driving directions to this peak?

The south colony lakes approach is as follows: From the town of Westcliffe, drive south on Colorado state highway 69 (insert 69 joke here) for 4.4 miles. Turn west (right) onto Colfax lane (a dirt road that cuts off the highway at an angle). Drive south-ish on this road as far as it goes (5.5 miles). You'll come to a T. Turn right at this junction (west again). At this point you are heading straight at the Sangres and the valley you will be going up is right in front of you. 1.5 miles past the T in the road, there is a parking lot for wussy cars. You can park here, or brave the rest of the road - it continues up the valley another 5 miles. Don't even think about driving the last 5 miles without a high clearance 4WD vehicle that you don't mind beating up a little. The going is slow (cars usually only beat hikers to the top by like 20 minutes), but well worth it - when you finally get to the gate at 11,600, you're just spittin' distance from the Crestones.

DaFreshman: I am cleaning up the page, and although I deleted your original entry, I integrated your "getting there" info into the main page. Thanks for your input.

I have recently adopted the page. I have updated most of the sections and plan to continue adding information as it comes in. Let me know if there is anything specific you can think of that's needed.

Great page - the one CO Fourteener that I have always wanted to climb. Also, an excellent route description for my "chosen" route.



Happy climbs -

Thanks for the vote. Glad to see you're still around. You may remember that we summited the same day in July 01. I mentioned you in my trip report. I haven't heard from you since we emailed a year or so ago. My wife and I want to return to the Needle so I can lead the pitches this time. Anyway, hope you have a safe climbing season. Alan
