Alex WoodAmerican Basin Adventure  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 8, 2012

Alex Wood

Left Flagstaff at 6pm to do this. We got into Silverton around 1:45am Colorado time. We went up the wrong 110 due to a lack of map and went up to Hurricane Pass (yikes!!). Finally got up to Cinnamon Pass and to the American Basin TH by 4:15am and then just decided to go for the summit at that point. Got to the top by 6:30am and took a nap with sleeping bags in the grassy summit till 10am. The road to American Basin from Silverton is gnarly and require 4wd. We used it mulitple times. Pretty area!

Date Climbed: Sep 25, 2011


After making it to the creek crossing near the TH with some careful driving in my compact, I hiked up the easy trail to the summit. A cold storm was approaching from the south and I got snowed on about halfway down. Saw ptarmigan along the trail.

Fun hike. Two guys enjoying Coors Original at the summit helped us point out other familiar 14ers. Didn't stay too long, as thunderstorms loomed.
