CharlesDRoute Climbed: Standard south face Date Climbed: July 15, 2003  Sucess!


Wow. I hadn't expected to be impressed by this 'mountain', but it's really impressive. Desolate, windy, and very lonely. Not obviously a mountain, but still very aesthetically pleasing. Just the approach (done by car, mind you) was pleasantly exotic to this transplaning easterner.

ChrisRoute Climbed: Direct South Face Couloir Date Climbed: May 2000  Sucess!


Whew... this was a hard one. Thank goodness we brought ice axes, bivy gear, and a detailed route topo. :-)

At least this highpoint is actually close to a major interstate (I-70), and the view is nice, by Kansas standards.

hgrapidRoute Climbed: main (dirt) roads Date Climbed: 2/22/2002  Sucess!


Unlike Panarama Point, you have no chance of seeing other mountains from the top of Mt. Sunflower. Kansas is flat as a pancake. Still, I liked the dry dirt roads that led me to the isolated summit. The early evening was pretty clear. I was moving to Colorado, so I put my stuff in my hotel room in Goodland, Kansas, and took the car for a 35 mile or so drive to the summit.
