With Arien, Tom and Ben, we topped out from grizzly gulch trailhead. Nice approach made for a great advance with a summit finish that leaves you elevated for days afterward.

Headed up early in time for sunrise from Grizzly Gulch. A bit of a long time in the dark but made for a great day!

Date Climbed: Jul 15, 2010


This was the last peak in the area after climbing Uncompahgre/Wetterhorn and Redcloud/Sunshine the previous two days. It was a perfect day for climbing, sunny skies and no wind going up the normal route in 3 hours. I had the summit to myself the whole 30 minutes I was there. This one has the best views of the 5 local 14ers. Made it down in 1:10.

Meetup.com Fierce Planet hike. We climbed Uncompahgre the day before, then camped at Grizzly Gulch. This one was a lot tougher, but the weather was almost perfect, and the views are even better than Uncompahgre. The views of Uncompahgre and The Wetterhorn are amazing! We had planned to continue along the ridge and knock off a few unnamed 13ers, but it looked a little dodgy, so we returned the way we came. The next day, we would finish off the weekend by climbing Redcloud & Sunshine.

Date Climbed: Jun 23, 2010


I watched the US beat Algeria and then drove to American Basin. My noon start was the latest on any 14er. Absolutely no clouds at ALL. Two hours up.
Gorgeous views.

Date Climbed: Aug 17, 2009


Since we were camped by Animas Forks we decided to add another 3 miles to the hike up this mountain by taking the Grouse Gultch Trailhead. That was a mistake. Once you go up to the ridge at 13,090 you had to drop about 1000 feet into American Basin, then summit. Only take this route if your backpacking.

Climbed via the American Basin Route from the Lake San Cristobal Road. The flowers in the American Basin were astounding this time of year. The trail was in great shape although loose gravel made the final ascent to the summit a little more difficult. A great introductory hike to the San Juans.
