umbra altaRoute Climbed: Southeast Ridge Date Climbed: June 20 2003  Sucess!

umbra alta

I've been on this ridge three times. Weather turned me back at the notch the first time-I quickly descended into the east face cirque to dump altitude. Second time was the charm. Snow helps make this route easier, covering the scree and talus down low, and allows a quick descent/ascent of the south facing couloir into the notch if you're so inclined. The 'Headwall' out of the notch was mostly turf on my June, 20 ascent. Third attempt exceeded my partner's comfort level at the notch. Bring a rope to rap if you're worried about this notorious downclimb, although I went without on all my attempts. Also ascended from Paiute's connecting ridge in September?, 2004. Simple third class scramble, with insane wind.

I literally thought I was going to be blown away! All you lightweights...beware a windy day on Audubon! Overall, it was an enjoyable day.

After an uneventful approach thru the trees on top of frozen snow, we hiked the snowfields and trail up the eastern slopes. On the descent we had a few nice glissades, but once back into the trees, we lost the trail, plunged to our knees constantly in the afternoon melted snow, and plugged our way back to the raod closure.

What a wonderfull day. We summited from a camp above Mitchel Lake at 10,875. 3+ hours to the summit, where there was a light wind, and sunny skies. Awsome views! Slog back to the winter gate closure was tiring with full packs.

Climbed with Georg Betsy on a beautiful, clear day with only variable winds (contrary to forecasts). Amazing views all around, but a bad day for altitude--I recently moved from WA. Sick and lethargic towards the summit and pretty much the whole way out. Some navigational challenges orienteering our way back to the lake, made even more fun (can you hear the irony?) by deep, deep snow in the woods to plod through. Despite being sick, a great trip.

Beautiful day but extremely windy! The CU research station at Niwot Ridge (11,200') measured 50mph gusts... I'd guess winds at the summit around 70-80mph. Fun quick and easy winter hike.

Scary ridge of talus on the way up, but well worth it. Spectacular views from the summit.

Very direct, strenuous tallus climb with exciting exposure near the top. Not as bad as the North Ridge of Neva, but the crux notch is certainly greater than third class, especially with 8" of snow. Summit view is spectacular and well worth the effort. Great trip in fantastic fall weather.

Spectacular views of Indian Peaks after the dusting of snow the previous weekend. The rugged mountains looked particularly dramatic.

No summit register and no USGS marker (that I could find) but the disappointment stops there. Awesome, swathing (is that a word?) view of pretty much all of southern RMNP plus Longs' south face, the Never Summer Range, Lake Granby, and the spiky northern Indian Peaks. This is a popular place, but patience rewarded me with some quality solo-summit time. Next time I bring a buddy and we try the Paiute-Audubon Traverse, it looks airy and exciting!

Outstanding views of the Longs massif and the Apache massif. Went ahead and got the high point to the north while I was there, Roach's 'Notabon'.

Climbed Audubon as part of my own personal challenge to cover the whole ridge from Audubon, Paiute, Toll, Pawnee, and Little Pawnee in a day. Was a great trip (see my tripreport for more information). I covered every highpoint along the ridge and thus went up Mount "Notabon" (see Roach) as well as several smaller high-points along the way. -- Great views of Longs peak from the whole ridge!
