Newbie's second thirteener.... Date Climbed: Aug 25, 1993
After climbing West Spanish Peak the year before, I decided Cuatro looked doable. Camped at Purgatoire CG, hiked north on the North Fork Trail for about 30 minutes and turned left, west, hoping to intersect the large ridge between Hell's and Toby Canyon. After an hour bushwacking I could see ridgeline and was on course, negotiating a passage through the scrub bush barrier led to the steep, but grassy ridge to summit. Dropped down the north ridge and descended east to find the trail back to camp.

Great weather, good friends and awesome snow conditions. Definitely a long way to drive AND hike for an obscure 13er.

Beautiful area. Just need to visit it in summer now.
