Great summit on the standard route. Next time we'll do the ridge walk around to the hut. Looks like a great loop.

8/7/05 - Halo Ridge route, long and scenic. Descended standard route.

1/29/11 - Backpacked up Tigiwon Road (looooong), past summer trailhead to a camp spot just below Halfmoon Pass. Climbed a slight variation of the standard north ridge route to avoid avalanche danger, particularly getting down to Cross Creek. Big effort.

12/23/12 - Another winter summit. 3 days/2 nights from bottom of Tigiwon Rd. Followed more or less the standard route.

and felt really stupid. We had great weather but climbed through the hotest part of the day and ran out of water before the summit. Did it in one day and long day does not cover this

Great day and 5th fourteener for me. It was a little stormy and we had some snow flurries. The climb back out of halfmoon pass sucked! Of course!

Great route--a real blast. Amazing weather: mostly sunny with no wind, 40° at the summit. Happy to have survived the Bermuda Triangle of the Rockies: the mountain really does try to sucker you down the left side on the descent.

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.

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

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.
