chicagotransplantWheeler Grand Traverse  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 5, 2016


Rachael and I started from Bull-of-the-Woods trailhead, summited Walter, Wheeler, Simpson, Old Mike, "Fairchild", Lake Fork and Kachina and then descended the ski area back to the car. Some fun scrambly sections between Simpson and "Fairchild" and again to get up Lake Fork. Long loop, not sure the mileage of vert but we took about 9 hours to complete it.

Well, this is a part of ski experience in Taos. Great work out to the top, and then nice skiing down.

Climbed the ridge from Kachina all the way to Wheeler. We hit Kachina Peak...An unnamed peak, Lake Fork Peak, "Bighorn Peak",Pt 12,728, Simpson, Old Mike, Wheeler, and then Walter. Started at 7:20am and then finished at 5:30. We started at the Williams Lake Trailhead. Amazing day! The weather somehow cooperated with us the whole time. Very fun traverse. Saw lots of Elk, Bighorn Sheep and Mountain Goats. SO MUCH FUN!!

I climb it about ~5-10 times every ski season via Highline Ridge, and have also climbed it 3 times in the off season (via Hunziker Bowl in fall 2003 and Main Street in spring 2003 and spring 2008).

b.Early turns  Sucess!


The resort opened late that year so we hiked up and found moderately pleasant talus turns with minimal bleeding.

Started at Bull of the Woods parking area. Hiked up the chutes in the Hunziker Bowl and across the broad ridge to the summit mound. Unseasonably clear skies so we continued on to Lake Fork Peak.

Easy hike through the ski area on the maintenance road. I left the road at Hunziker Bowl and started climbing straight up at the ski area boundry. Next time I'll try something a little different. This route was quite steep and had many loose rocks. I made a couple of boulders tumble.
