Busy Fourth of July weekend. Saw 8-10 other climbers. First dry day after 3 days of rain. Beautiful climb and summit! Been wanting to get over and climb this one for a long time!

Date Climbed: Sep 12, 2015


Traverse via the NE ridge to the NW ridge. Beautiful scramble up the NE Ridge! A little dicey down low, but once on the ridge proper, it's a fun ride to the top! We roped up and simul climbed the whole ridge allowing us to stay right on the edge all the way up. Super fun San Juan scramble with an outstanding view from the summit.

Quick up and down on Lone Cone. About 2.5 hours round trip. Fresh August snows on the Wilson group and in the further San Juans. Ice covering the talus the last 500 feet or so to the summit.

via northwest ridge with Duchess, my son and a friend. We were thinking about crossing the mountain initially, but for Duchess decided for the easier hike up. Lovely summit, great views, very scenic.

PhenomenalWomanLonesome Solitude  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 19, 2011


Two days spent enjoying the peaceful solitude of the mountain without any other campers or hikers. Almost broke my leg post holing through the snow to get to Devil's Chair, but pushing through to the summit was well worth the fleeting pain. That summit view will last forever...one of my favorite peaks to date.

EleutherosAlone on the Cone: NW Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 18, 2011


No one else on the mountain (except the girlfriend)! Road blocked by snow at about 10300' and 5-6 feet of snow on the approach, but the NW ridge was a dry rockpile. Truly awesome summit panorama -one of my favorites. Tons of glissading and self-arrest practice. Bear tracks, lynx tracks and more. Camped here for 2 nights with perfect weather and views of Wilson Peak.

Date Climbed: Jul 27, 2010


An exiting but short climb! Stuck to the ridge proper the whole way up, halfway down, and shredded the Devil's Chair the rest of the way down

Date Climbed: Jul 13, 2008


When Dry is much easier than many sources suggest and the looseness and most of the exposure is avoidable. Climb this route when conditions are good. The NW is rather boring by comparrison...though a day up here is far better than not at all! Enjoy.

WillyheadRoute Climbed: NE approach, NW ridge Date Climbed: July, early 90's  Sucess!
Growing up in that area, the peak was always inviting. Would love to do it again, post knee surgeries.

Great place to be, there was no one there when i went, of course that was in May when there was plenty of snow left. Easy hike in and up and great views of surrounding San Juan mountains!

ChuckHeywoodRoute Climbed: North Ridge. Date Climbed: Sept. 1, 2005  Sucess!
Planned on hiking the NW ridge but the access road was blocked, so we decided to do the North ridge instead. That was a bit of a nuisance for an otherwise fine afternoon hike.
