Date Climbed: Aug 26, 2007


Solo hike in an almost full moon. Left the 4WD trailhead above Winfield at 1230am. Summitted around 320am (with several stops to set up the tripod and camera). Nice and bright above treeline -- no need for headlamps. Watched the moonset from the summit--very neat experience except that meant it was extra dark on the way down. The trail is excellent and you can tell some hard work has been put into it.

My first 14'er for 2005. Great way to start off the season! Went a second time with a friend and hiked through fog the entire time. Guess they'll have to go back for the views.

I climbed this peak with two friends from 14ers.com. Great weather and view of the Apostles! I felt a little tired and behind the other guys because I had just arrived from sea level 2 days earlier.

Had to walk the 4WD road, so a bit of a long hike. Really nice trail from TH, though, thanks to the CTI's hard work. Great views all along the way and at the summit. Rain threatened from about 12:30 on, but only sprinkled until we reached the car.

Started up at 5:10AM, reached an empty summit at 7:56AM. Perfect weather and awesome views. Stayed about 20 mins then back to the car by 10:38AM with several people heading up. My second summit in as many days and my 29th 14'er.....sweet!

winterfaeHuron via Brown's  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 5, 2007


After reading HokieJim's trail report we decided to use the same route and had a great hike bagging 2 summits in one day! A few threatening clouds came, went and came again but we had a good 30-45 minutes at the summit and got to our cars just before the rain came! Awesome views.

Ascended Brown's Peak first via the Lulu Gulch trail, traversed over to Huron, and descended the standard route. Snow conditions allowed for a nice 1000' glissade down the NW face!

Beautiful views throughout the hike, especially those of The Three Apostles. Great trail, but the snow in the basin was a nightmare on the descent with lots and lots of postholing. Beyond that, Huron was a blast!

ktiffany22An alternate adventure route from Lulu Gulch  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 2, 2007


On a repeat summit, we took to our adventurous side & loop hiked both Browns & Huron. Using our crampons, we climbed a fun 25-30 degree coulier up to Browns (in pure solitude), traversed the ridge to Huron, caught a couple of glissades down Huron's face with our axes, then donned our snowshoes to prevent a dreadful posthole nightmare accross the valley headed back down the standard route. THIS route is the way to go!!!

What a delightful hike! I wish I could return up there with my new camera. The slideshow from our hike up there in the summer of 2003 is here: Huron Peak hike

More scenic than other Sawatch peaks. Maybe the only Sawatch 14er Id consider doing again.

Vagabond Manifesto

Beautiful hike...made the summit this morning, presumably the first one on the mountain today (no one else had signed the register). Only one other hiker behind me, then a rainstorm with some hail thrown in for good measure on the descent.
