theREALCarpeDMLast peak of 8 day San Juan trip  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 30, 2016


From Matterhorn Creek TH. Nice hike. I decided to pass on Broken Hill -- after 8 straight days of hiking Lake City bicentennials (and a few other 13ers), I was simply ready to head home. I figured 72.5 miles and ~33k feet of elevation gain was enough to earn me a rest.

Beautiful weekend in the Matterhorn Creek basin. We camped at the trail junction and climbed Matterhorn at sunset. Uncompahgre the next day and Wetterhorn on Sunday. Good times

With Megan Berry. After Wetterhorn Pk. Followed the standard Matterhorn Ck route down from the top of Wetterhorn but then peeled off N to join the Wetterhorn-Matterhorn ridge at its lowest point. From there a bit of a scramble to Matterhorn Pk; coming off the final tower before the summit was particularly steep, loose. But a nice way to approach the peak. Descended the easy southern slopes to rejoin the Matterhorn Ck trail. The reward for our day's efforts? A puncture on the way back to Lake City. Fortunately the feeble spare "donut" got us back to town where http://www.renesgarage.com/ fixed the tyre on the spot. Thank you, Rene.

Nice hike after Wetterhorn summit. Views from this mountain are amazing, being able to see Wetterhorn north face was very rewarding.

Enjoyed this peak in August snow! Snowy summer views were astounding, and it was neat to see paintbrush I full bloom, covered in snow! Nice mellow scramble, dynamite views! With Deb and Astroclimber. Headed to Packer Saloon for beers and sandwiches afterward.

My friend lost his camera on Wetterhorn two weeks ago, so we went back to look for it and by the way, I climbed Matterhorn for fun. It was a very nice day.

After Uncompahgre and Wetterhorn we returned to the junction and the weather cleared again. We had no choice, but to go for it! got ruthless and pounded out a 30 minute ascent from the junction after going all day already and doing 5 other 14ers in the preceding 3 days. It gave me that rush on the top I was looking for from going full speed for ALMOST too long. Great season for Wildflowers too!

sevenviiMatterhorn Peak from the South Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 6, 2011


Pretty cool climb, mostly just a steep approach up the glassy slopes from any side really to gain the ridge. We chose to come from the basin between Wetterhorn and Matterhorn. The ridge is pretty straight forward, you can keep it at mild class 3 or 2+ in a little wash-out gully or choose to go full class 3 and scramble your way to the summit.

I peeled off from the group and scrambled this peak by way of a short chimney on the upper south face. Hit up Broken Hill at the end of the day while waiting for the others to get down from Wetterhorn.

These two make a great pair, caught it with some great wildflowers on Matterhorn, "Meadow Peak" lived up to its name that day for sure.

Climbed both peaks from the Matterhorn Creek Trailhead. The grassy south slopes of Matterhorn Peak were enjoyable to ascend. Fun bit of class 3 near the summit.
