Kinda trail run, kinda hike, kinda tough.
Suboptimal conditions for trail runners, but still a great day.
Did a loop of the upper route.

Halo Descent of Holy Cross with summits of Holy Cross Ridge and PT 13248. Third trip around the Halo. Patchy snow on the ridge, lots of larger patches below Notch, but you can use them to cut some mileage. Wet with some snow patches in the trees.

I tagged Holy Cross Ridge plus the other 13er summits on my may to Holy Cross starting on the Halo Ridge side. I eventually completed the Tour de Holy Cross descending the Halfmoon Pass trail before the storms hit the area. Awesome views all around!

From the summit of Holy Cross via standard route, continued on to Holy Cross Ridge (13831) summit. Planned to descend via the full loop, but decided to head back the same way due to ankle issues. (Which ended up being longer and more elevation, but easier trail.)

theREALCarpeDMFrom Fancy Creek TH  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 15, 2011


Due to Tigiwon Rd closure, I went for Holy Cross from the south. The road just past Fancy Creek was washed out. Packed into Hunky Dory Lake (heard that sites near Tuhare Lakes were soggy - they were). 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.

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!

We decided on doing this route instead of going back up to Half Moon Pass. We had amazing weather all day long with amazing amazing views all over. The talus on the traverse kinda sucks after awhile, but it was doable. It was a very very long day, but well worth.

Did the entire Notch>Halo>Holy Cross cirque. Some snow on the talus, made things a bit more difficult. Long day.

Halo Ridge is some of the longest class-2 and 3 scrambling done in a day. Great views of Holy Cross and Bowl of Tears though!!
