StegosaurusDefining Independence Day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 4, 2010


Some solos in the Sangres for Independence Day: Crestone Needle via Southface, followed by Broken Hand Peak via North ridge/West slopes, followed by Humboldt Peak via typical West ridge in one long day. Drove over from Rye and left the truck at the South Colony Lakes trailhead around 4:30 am, first one on the Needle summit at 8:00 am sharp, Broken Hand summit at 10:15 am, rested at upper South Colony Lake for lunch hour (beautiful trout visible in the rapids), Humboldt Peak summit around 3:30 pm, back at the truck at 6:00 pm and back in Rye in time for dinner. Beautiful day, great rock, but felt like I had been run over by a train the next morning. Highly recommend.

Date Climbed: Apr 2, 2011


First time doing Humboldt but had a nice day on the East ridge route. Approx 6k feet of elevation and 13 miles. Strong winds but very warm day for early April. Ridge is largely snow free, only needed snowshoes in trees after leaving the rainbow trail.
Left trail head at 7:12, Summit 12:36, back to car 16:30

Thick rime covered everything making for an interesting yet beautiful hike. Well worth the slog up the road from the lower 2wd trailhead.

Panthera uncia

Wonderful day in the mountains with some great friends! Saw a few bighorns and quite a lot of marmots too. The view of the Crestones from the summit and trail along the west ridge is breathtaking.

KieferSouth Face/West Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Dec 22, 2010


Stephanie and I took a meandering route up the south face which connected with the west ridge. Absolutely brutal conditions on the summit ridge and summit. Only time I've been on the summit of a peak and was worried about getting lost.
Clouds all day and rime covered EVERYTHING. If I didn't know any better, I would have thought I was in Antartica.

Started at Willow Lake TH in the morning with Ted Romero. Got Kit Carson, Challenger and then went over Kat Carson on the way to Humbolt. A storm rolled in and we bailed down Spanish Creek drainage. Long, long day.

After climbing 20 feet up the Ellingwood Arete and deciding the icy conditions would prove too much for our relatively inexperienced group (Kerr and Eric), we headed up Humboldt for a better view of the area. It's a beautiful spot with views as far south as the small mountain along side the Rio Grande Gorge south of Taos.

I ran into my first wild Colorado bear on the Rainbow Trail while hiking alone. I passed the trail to go up the east ridge, so I climbed straight up the "fall line" until I got above tree line, and fortunately the ridge I was on led to the east summit ridge. On the way down, I bush-whacked somewhere along the east ridge and came out just above the South Colony Lake road closure. Bluebird day, didn't see any hikers, just a lot of elk.

We traversed from Kat Carsen, over obstuction. Super high winds becuase of a sandstorm over the Sangres. We'd take 20 steps, then brace for the winds over and over....

Got weathered off the Needle, so did Humboldt instead. Probably the worst weather I've hiked a 14er in.
