StephanieLynnwinter death march  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 4, 2010


Third time summiting, but this one was the most physically demanding thing I've ever done. Long day and it took all four of us taking turns to break trail, but we summited right at sunset! Hit the wall on the way down, due mostly to dehydration. A very memorable and rewarding winter hike I plan to never repeat. With Kiefer, Ben, and Ryan.

I was not prepared for the outstanding beauty of the Holy Cross wilderness and the of the mountain. We got a really late start and climbed the mountain from the Halfmoon Pass route. It was a really long day and I would of been happier if we didn't have to go 1000 feet back up to Halfmoon Pass.

Nice hike. Next time I think I will ascend via the Halo Ridge route. That looks like fun.

Date Climbed: Jul 16, 2010


Started at 3:30am and made it to Notch Mountain right after sunrise. The ridge was long as advertised but I didn't see a soul until the summit of Holy Cross. The north ridge seemed long but it may just be that I didn't go up that way so it was unfamiliar. Climbing back over Halfmoon Pass wasn't as tough as I had feared. Great route for a blue bird sky kind of day!

Wasted an hour blowing right by the entrance to the cross, and was rewarded with nasty slush. Oh, well. Still a cool route. Trip report

Started out at 4:15 and were headed for Cross Couloir. The approach took forever so we decided to do Angelica Couloir. Fun snow climb! Then we did Halo Ridge to Notch Mountain. We got back to Half Moon Pass TH at 6pm...LONG DAY! We didn't see anybody all day until we got below Notch Mountain

Date Climbed: Oct 30, 2009


With Mccannster

Climbed the north ridge of Notch, went through the Notch over to Halo ridge, then to the summit. Descended North Ridge. Only 12 miles, but it felt more like 20. 6200 feet of gain. Just enough snow to make the talus scrambling very annoying. Long day, just short of 12 hours

Date Climbed: Jan 4, 2010


A painfully long day (summit day was 22 hrs). Left camp at 5:50am and summited at 6:10pm and ended at 4:00am.
Hardest mountain (per winter) I've ever done to date. Member of our party developed Pulmonary Edema on the ascent out of Cross Creek.
Couldn't ask for better weather. Calm winds, single digits temps and clear skies. Awful snow conditions.

Up the cross couloir, down the North ridge. Watch for rockfall as the snow softens up.

I hiked this mountain on the 6th anniversary of my husband's death... I found this mountain to be a very healing place.

I led a group of my fiancee, Amy, and 8 of her girlfriends up the Standard Route of Holy Cross. Eveyone made the summit and back down on a great day! My 4th ascent of the peak.

What a long day via the Halo Ridge. Topped out on Point 13,831 and then got Holy Cross. Mother nature reminded us of how the weather can be in the fall. Snowed almost all day.

Date Climbed: Sep 11, 2009


This was one of my two favorites from my journey to Colorado. I really wanted to try the Halo Ridge route but decided against it since I was solo. The standard route was really fun anyhow and I spent the first night next to a small waterfall down in the cross creek basin. See my Trip Report about doing seven 14ers in eight days.

Single day hike from Halfmoon pass TH.Hiked with a well acclimatized friend.He was on a schedule,so it was keep up with him or bust.I made it to the end of the ridge and saw him running back down from the top.Frustrating to get that close.Met some nice dudes who said they had gotten caught in a whiteout the year before.Hope they did it-I will be back next year!

TCart215Via Halo Ridge and Fall Creek Drainage Varia  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 19, 2009


This route turned out to be a lot harder and longer than we anticipated. Be sure to read the whole page describing this route if you plan to take it. We camped at Lake Constantine and summitted the mountain the following day. It took us 11 hours round trip (back to Lake Constantine), and it was trailless bouldering almost the whole time. We returned by dropping into the upper Tuhare Lake drainage basin--I preferred this way over the route going up. We were under-prepared, but we made it back just before dark. For more of my comments on this route, see the Climber's Log on the "Halo Ridge and Fall Creek Drainage Varia" route page.
