lilmantisAwesome long day!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 18, 2017


Great day on this fantastic trail into the Elk Head Pass Basin. Did the standard route and even had some decent exposure crossing the upper snowfields on the west side of the ridge. Great, fast snow climb up to the ridge.

We hiked in from the Pine Creek trail and summited in some questionable conditions. We descended toward emerald and didn't walk on a trail for hours. It was great.

What a beautiful day for mid-September. The West Ridge route is steep and the loose rock and soil make for an adventure coming back down. The crux was no big deal and actually was a fun change of pace. However, the route just after the crux is to be taken seriously! All total, I saw at least 15 people coming on and off the summit. I'm glad to finally check this one off the list.

#1 5-28-16 Long snow climb after the first junction. Wonderful morning snow, soft afternoon mush. One dicey section just before the summit. With Lana. Couloirs good with little sign of slide activity. 14er number 27.

BradBartickGood 14er  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 17, 2015


With Michelle. One of the easier ones we've done. 4 hours at a leisurely pace, snowed lightly on summit and on descent. Goats galore. Ate at Fiesta Mexican Restaurant in Salida. Plates the size of manhole covers. Fajitas and Carne Asada does a body good. And Dos Equis Amber (no IPA on tap). Ask any Mexican.

Beautiful day. We began our climb at the trailhead at 5:00am and summited at 10:00 am. We made it back to the car at 2:00pm. On our descent we spotted a female Elk grazing in the basin.

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

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.

JohnnyCOSteep Slog to beautiful views  Sucess!
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!

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.
