1/7/06- incredible winter day with mike! spanish creek drainage to the 2000' class 4+ wall just west of the prow, and finishing from kit carson avenue to the summit! somehow we didn't think to nab challenger point along the way....

With Jon, Malia, Kay, over Challenger Pt. Some steep snow on avenue, but there were good prints in it. The snow softened later in the day and became sketchier.

Climbed with Jamie, stared in Spanish Creek and climbed up to the saddle between Kit and Challenger via a class 3/4 or even low 5 near the top headwall to the KC Ave. Should have gone the extra 301' to climb Challenger but we were do distracted by our efforts (and wind!) so far that we just wanted to get Kit.

Climbed Challenger and Kit Carson from Willow Lake - both are great mountains, but I've got my eye on KC's North Ridge...

Climbed Challenger then took the Kit Carson Highway to the Class 3 route to the summit. This was #55 of #58 Colorado 14ers. Nice weather. Long day from the Willow Creek Trailhead. 14 plus miles with 6000+ vertical.

Enjoyed this outing with Cheryl on a lovely summer day. Thought the route was lovely - if a little loose and scrappy at times. What's not to like about a day in the Sangres?

Summited twice I believe. Great mountain guarded by cliffs on all sides with good, knobby rock. Great scenery and pristine. One of my favs.
