Fun outing. Had a goat follow us from the summit to where the trail drops off the ridge.

ericdElkhart traverse aborted  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 29, 2014


3.5hrs up standard gulch approach to ridge line and along the false high points to a big rock with survey marker. Then tried to traverse the ridge to Elkhart Pass and was almost there (3/4 of the way, -800') when cliffed-out in some loose choss (see pic). Rained most of the day but refreshing!

Date Climbed: Aug 10, 2013


The West Ridge is not great - the 4x4 road is very rough and will really jar you (especially if you're hungover). The trail is crappy compared to the standard trail - there are hardly any switchbacks or steps, and it is extremely steep. Stick to the standard route.

Date Climbed: Jul 6, 2013


Started at Missouri Gulch TH. First two miles were steep. Great wake up in the morning. Beautiful meadow to a ridge with fantastic views. After summit, dropped off the east ridge. Things then got interesting. Back to the TH in 8.5 hours. While your doing this hike, better off baggin Belford and Oxford too. And Iowa and Emerald if your into the century club!

chicagotransplantWest Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 5, 2013


Another slow start to the snow this year in Colorado allowed us to drive to Rockdale and day trip Missouri's west ridge in winter. Some loose rock to get on to the ridge proper, probably would have been better to travel a little farther south before picking up the ridge. Summit ridge has one tricky spot just before the summit, there is a tricky snowfield below some towers, as the season progresses this can be a slide hazard possibly requiring you to go over towers.

Date Climbed: Jul 4, 2009


With Megan and Katie, both 12. Camped in Missouri Gulch, close to the turn off to Belford. Up via the standard route, and then back along the splendid curving N ridge until more or less directly above our campsite: steep drop off.

Princeton and Missouri weekend Combo. West ridge is a long trip when you don't make it across the creek with your car. The grassy slope is very exhausting. Long day with nasty winds and clouds but the mountain is incredibly colorful.

Date Climbed: Aug 10, 2012


Sunny going up until the clouds moved in. Little bit of sleet/hail on the descent, no worries about thunder/lightning. Less then 7 hours round-trip. Very scenic ridge.

Perfect spring day. The east slopes leading to the NW ridge made a great snow climb and quick descent. View to Huron and Apostles was fantastic!

Would probably have bailed on the three-bagger had we not hit Missouri first
