cdevenney84Long but cool hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 30, 2012

cdevenney84

Drove to the tailhead after work on a Friday, got up the ridge as it was getting dark and then descended into the valley with headlamps on and found a spot to camp. Next time I think I would skip the camping part, as putting on your big pack and getting back up the ridge after doing the 14er is brutal.

5th time up, this time standard up and down as a volunteer ranger patrol for the Forest Service. The CFI trail work in the boulders between 12/13k is looking good!

Long day. Ascended the standard route to the summit, then continued on the additional mile or so to the summit of Holy Cross Ridge. Returned the same way, bypassing the Holy Cross summit on the return.

Remote. A slog back up over half moon pass. Great technical alpine route potential on the Angelica Face. A mountain worth multiple repeats.

Great trail with big talus on top. 1,000 feet of gain on the return trip isn't as bad as it's made out to be.

Due to Tigiwon Rd closure, I went in from the south. The road just past Fancy Creek was washed out. Packed into Hunky Dory Lake. Reached east ridge of Pt 13,768, went over to Mt of HC, then back to HC Ridge. Came down to Tuhare Lakes - which was a big mistake! Spent a lot of time looking for a passable way down. Beautiful area! But lots of snow begets lots of rushing water.

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

Date Climbed: Aug 7, 2005

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.
