mtnhiker13Route Climbed: Stone Man Pass Date Climbed: 8/27/2005  Sucess!

This is quite the mountain and you need to be in good shape for this endeavor! The climbing is fun fun fun once you are past Stone Man Pass. Route finding was pretty easy as it is well cairned now. Just keep a sharp eye out for the cairns and well travelled places. Fantastic view of Longs Peak and the rest of the Glacier Gorge area. Fabulous mountain and a long day. Start early (and I mean really early).

Erin and I climbed McHenrys' standard route as part of Roach's Triple Crown route (from his RMNP guide), which includes Chiefs Head and Mount Alice. McHenrys was our 100th Colorado 13er!

Wow the Triple Crown. What a day! I forget what order it goes in...guess whatever you desire. I've been up these peaks but all on seperate occasions. I love the hike past Lion Lakes and Snowbank on up to the Alice-Chiefs saddle. The day we climbed Hourglass Ridge we did it in absolute complete fog, socked in conditions. Chiefs Head ridge we were awed by the views. McHenrys was an epic day which I will never forget in which I nearly bit the dust sliding down a snow slope on the way down from Stoneman Pass. I believe we were on McHenrys a day before you. How was your traverse between Chiefs and McHenrys? I'd sure like to do the Triple Crown someday. I bet that was quite a taxing day physically. Congrats!

Climbed this one with Colonalpyat. Our original plan was to ascend McHenrys via the standard South Face Route but when we got to Stone Man Pass we began entertaining thoughts of ascending the steep southeast ridge. Once we began the climbing didn't stop until we finally reached the summit. This was probably the steepest climb I have been involved with to date. A big thanks to Jim for leading this route, wouldn't have even thought of this route if I were going solo.

Climbed this one with Kane. My first trip to Glacier Gorge and first peak in RMNP. A great introduction to the area! Went up the crack on the west side of Black Lake and made our way up to Stone Man Pass via some loose terrain that's probably worse with snow and ice. Took a right turn at the pass and went up SE ridge to the top. Some steep climbing on that last section. I wouldn't have done it if I was by myself.

NelsonRoute Climbed: Stone Man pass Date Climbed: 4 times, I think, since 1980, all late summer.  Sucess!

Nelson

One of RMNP's greatest mountains. Stone Man Pass is still worth doing again and again, but I may look for some other routes as well.



The scramble up the crack system Roach mentions to the right (west) of Black Lake is highly recommended. More fun and shorter than the standard hike up the ramp to the east. That is if you find the right crack, I missed it the first time!
