Liba Kopeckovacold, windy and poor visibility  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 31, 2013

Liba Kopeckova

Started from Marshall Pass TH, south slopes to west ridge, very windy and poor visibility, just me and Duchess (I prefer solitude in the mountains, and the extra challenge). We came down too far west on the way down (there was very poor visibility up on the ridge) and got to the intersection of Colorado=Continental Divide trail and Little Cochetopa trail. Took the Colorado, or Continental Divide (both share the same trail here) back to Marshall Pass.
Marshall Pass road was little slippery. I called the day before Forest Service in Gunnison to verify whether it is open.

fun easy hike with talus scramble near the top. A bit of cross-country routefinding for excitement.

Someone we met referred to this as the "secret of 13-9". We would agree with that. Ouray is most definitely one of the most understated peaks anywhere. It's hard to beat the views and contemplating life with one's favorite companion.

A great but easy ridge walk. Very relaxing and very beautiful. Perfect way to wrap up a quick trip to Colorado.

Bone dry for early May. Started at 3:30 pm and ascended in 2 hours. Great way to spend an afternoon and get some good exercise. Summit views were fantastic!

Climbed with friend Jake from Marshall Pass a few days after a fall snow. There was more scrambling possible on the ridge than I thought which made it pretty fun. Saw two others the whole day. Nasty windy on the summit and about 30 degrees at noon.

Climbed the west ridge of Ouray in combo with Chipeta and PT 13472A. Longer route than expected, PT 13472 is farther from Marshall Pass than I thought. Also lots of vertical involved between bumps on the ridges and the saddle between the peaks is only 12,300'.

Super-windy on the ridge, but still a nice hike, with a great view of the rest of the Sawatch to the north.

Hiked E Ridge direct variation starting from FR 200 at 9,900'. Bushwhacked to the tree line through 1-3 ft of snow. Windy on the upper ridge and the summit. Watched the sunset on the way back. Nice hike, beautiful views.

Went up the east ridge and down the northeast ridge. Beautiful hike on a beautiful day! The aspen were past peak down below, but from above treeline, there was still something to see. There were a few tiny patches of snow - mostly on the northern aspects of the ridges - but nothing to worry much about. The only people I saw all day were a father and young son bow hunting in the trees.

Took my 5 year old on her first peak bagging. She did great all the way up, got a little tired on way back. Overall a great hike, and nice views of the Armchair and nice bristlecone pine. We had the peak to ourselves.

I've had family in town a good part of the week, so it was nice to make an escape to the mountains to be by myself for a few others. I was shocked to meet only one other person on this mountain all day! I didn't expect Grays & Torrey's hordes, but - my gosh, a brilliant day (albeit frigid in the morning), a high Thirteener - amazing that so few make their way here. (No complaining, mind you...)
