Long day solo in winter. Had to break trail from the TH to treeline, which was grueling. Once on the ridge it was snowing heavily, but it cleared up right before the summit. Amazing day!

milanSpring gathering  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 5, 2012
Awesome, I went to the 14er dot com spring gathering where I met a lot of friends some of who I hiked later that summer. Still some snow in the mountain, I did the loop Horn-Fluted-Little Horn and it was surprisingly difficult class 3 on Little Horn. I descended trhrough a gully to the south to avoid the difficult ridge and got into postholing nightmare.

I've climbed this mountain multiple times, and guided it a few times. Tons of fun. Much harder than most of the 14ers I've done.

Approached via Horn Creek which was amazing. Climbed to the saddle of Lil' Horn and Fluted. Bagged Lil' Horn then over to Fluted. Great views of the Needle all the way. The ridge over to Horn was fun but the descent down Horn Peak trail is disgusting. One of the worst trails I've been on. For about half it is an abandoned 4x4 trail which goes straight up. Tons of baseball sized loose rocks. Snow was not a problem.

Climbed horn peak, on a VERY windy day. was suprised, at how little snow there was. Awesome view of the Crestones! We rode a snow gully down the east face, for a quick descent.

Combined Horn with Fluted and Little Horn on a bluebird summer day. Nice trail which didn't make it feel as steep as it is. Ridge run to Fluted and Little Horn offers some optional scrambling.

Third peak of the day after Little Horn and Fluted. The ridge on the Fluted side has some easy scrambling near the summit and was much more interesting than the Horn Peak Trail, which I used for the descent back to the trailhead.

I did climb Horn Peak and carried most of the way my son to the top. Nice mountain.

My Dad and I climbed Horn Peak on the Horn Peak Trail. The day started out sunny and cloudless, but by the time we reached the treeline there were clouds gathering. This was my third time to climb Horn Peak, and once we got to the summit, we came right back down. On the ridge, a sleet storm came in and the temperature dropped. A few words of advice: bring a warm coat and DO NOT get a cheap rain poncho. If it gets windy, the poncho will be of no use, as I and my dad found out. It was an incredibly hard hike, but the view was very rewarding.

still plenty of snow to deal with in the trees along the East Ridge trying to follow the Horn Peak Trail. The snow was quite rotten and difficult even in snowshoes at times. No crampons needed. Above treeline, it was free of snow. Great views of the Crestones.

The trail was 95% cover with snow 1 mile above the sign in to the tree line. Above Harlequin Creek the trail was buried. Used crampons in the morning and the afternoon was a post-hole-a-thon even with snow shoes. Got a great glissade on the way down.

This was my first solo hike in winter-like conditions. I'll always remember it.

Beautiful, clear day. Took the standard route from Horn Creek trailhead. My first encounter with marmots. Friendly buggers in the rocks along the final ridge. There are some spots to camp just in the treeline, if you'd cache a little water. Give you the option to continue to Fluted Peak and others.
Views from the peak were spectacular. Fluted Peak at center.



Mt Adams, Kit Carson Mt, (Challenger/Columbia Pts) and the Crestones. Little Horn, front left.

Did this one with my dad. We went up the Horn Peak Trail but came down via Dry Creek. We dropped straight down to the lower Dry Lake from the summit, staying right of the gully on the south face. If I were to do it again I think I'd take the east ridge down a few hundred feet and then hit the tundra on the south face.

In my opinion Horns look is better than its standard route. Very ardous indeed. Horn would be a good one for winter.

A beautiful November day, but some serious trail breaking from 10,700 and up! Kicked my butt, but it was worth it for the views.

Did it again with a buddy. Climbed through the clouds to clear, windless skys above 11,000 feet. A total cloud deck below us so the mountains were just sticking through...NICE!
