AmbretOn Way to Wheeler  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 6, 2017


Had to climb over Mt Walter to get to Wheeler Peak, the day's objective. But hey, Summitpost lists Walter as a separate summit, so might as well claim credit, right?

RuvichaSecond Time Around  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 6, 2017


First did Mt. Walter on the way to Wheeler Peak in 2009; the return engagement this year was to help other friends score both peaks. Although the Williams Lake route to Wheeler is shorter and evidently a more popular approach, I highly recommend taking the much more scenic Bull of the Woods Trail to Wheeler Peak -- you will get Fraser Mountain and Mt. Walter along the way -- and then returning via the now well-developed trail down to Williams Lake back to the starting point at the Taos Ski Valley (when I first descended to Williams Lake in 2009, the "path" was scarcely more than a narrow animal track -- since then, someone has gone to a lot of trouble to build a wide, excellent trail).

chicagotransplantWheeler Grand Traverse  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 5, 2016


Rachael and I started from Bull-of-the-Woods trailhead, summited Walter, Wheeler, Simpson, Old Mike, "Fairchild", Lake Fork and Kachina and then descended the ski area back to the car. Some fun scrambly sections between Simpson and "Fairchild" and again to get up Lake Fork. Long loop, not sure the mileage of vert but we took about 9 hours to complete it.

Nice little jaunt from the saddle of Wheeler. I mean, as long as you're up there, why not? Great views until the clouds rolled in.

usually done with Wheeler. I used to live in N.M. and did Wheeler peak almost yearly for several years…. sometimes even jogging the trail.

technicolorNHSheep can fly  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 12, 2014


After doing Wheeler, Simpson, and Old Mike this was where I saw a sheep fly. He had been tranquilized by fish and game for breeding purposes and they flew him off the mountain slung under a helicopter. Not something you see in the mountains every day.

Neat summit in itself, and neat spot to rest before making the final hike to Wheeler.

Date Climbed: May 27, 2014


Ended up taking the Bull of the Woods trail up and the Williams Lake Trail down and hit this on the way. We weren't quite sure what the weather was going to do as some very early morning dark clouds appeared. Ended up being a nice day. Nice "false summit" on the way to Wheeler and a great day overall. Camped at the Twining/Bull of the Woods trailhead area.

Winter climb on the way up to Wheeler. No wind at all so it was fantastic. Big horn sheep to see as well.

I was happy this peak was so close to Wheeler because it made it easy to bag two peaks in one day!

Yes, I am adding Walter to shamelessly increase the number of peaks I can claim. It is unfortunately shadowed by its bigger, more glorious, and more visited neighbor
