theREALCarpeDMfrom camp at Upper Sand Creek Lake  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 2, 2017


Hiked into camp at Upper Sand Creek Lake. Went up Milwaukee (one little part of that ledge was loose and scary), over to Pico, then 13020, down to the drainage and back over the pass. A long day! And . . . when I stumbled back into camp, I discovered that someone had stolen my bivy sack, sleeping bag, and sleeping pad!

Date Climbed: Jul 27, 2012


A little route finding problems, but finally made the class 3/4 to the top. Just after the 2" ramp, go straight to the big notch, with the chokestone, (200') and go straight up the steep grassy ledges to the top.

From Music. It's no worse than 4th class if you drop 30 feet off the ridge in a couple places. Trip report.

Date Climbed: Jul 18, 2010


A new trail exists just below the north ridge on the east side to Milwaukee Pass. The east face was more exposed than we thought. See TR. I think we exited the ramp too late and got into some pretty exposed 4th class. Continued on to Asilado and UN 13020.

Date Climbed: May 29, 2006


The "crux ledge" wasn't as scary as I'd feared, but it did make two members of our party decide to call it quits. I thought the scrambling higher up was more difficult, but maybe we were slightly off route. Regardless, it was a ton of fun. Traversed to Pico Asilado & UN 13020 (which at the time I didn't even realize was a ranked peak) before exiting the ridge down a nasty gully.

RyanSRoute Climbed: North Ridge via Cottonwood Creek Date Climbed: July 23, 2005  Sucess!


One more trip to this fabulous peak, en route to Pico Asilado. This time we tried the Cottonwood Creek route, and I'm so glad we did! The wildflowers were *outrageous* !! I've never seen anything like it, and I've been in the San Juans and the Gores in the past week. The bluebells and monks hood are so thick there that the meadows appear blueish from 2000' above! Thank you, heavy snowpack! What a treat!

The crux ramp on Milwaukee didn't seem so bad this time. We found that only a half-dozen folks had signed the register since Erin's and my last visit! Afterward, we traversed to Pico Asilado and UN 13,020 before returning to Cottonwood Creek for the descent.

We fought back our fears on the exposed ramp and enjoyed a fun routefinding adventure on Milwaukee's upper heights -- a very satisfying day in the Sangres. A trip report is available here.
