DanielLWilson-El Diente Traverse  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 31, 2013

Took the traverse from El Diente (awesome route) and descended the very loose south face into Kilpacker Basin. The crux move at the end is exhilarating!

finished the Colorado 14ers after 25 years. Took a route from Kilpacker basin that is not aesthetic but avoids the class 4 section. Basically just some class 2 gully climbing with loose rocks. Great weather on top, especially considering the recent monsoon weather

From Silver Pick, did West Buttress on El Diente, then the traverse to Mount Wilson, scary clouds. Fun on the ridge...

1st year it snowed, only got Wilson Peak. 2nd year it snowed so canceled the trip. 3rd year decided to go in July instead of September, did the El Diente to Wilson traverse, great fun and success! Access from Navajo Basin/trailhead with backpack.

blueshadeTraverse from Navajo TH  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 2, 2013

blueshade

Soloed as a day trip from Navajo TH. West Ridge to El Diente and then continued the Traverse to Mt. Wilson.

Stayed mostly true on the West Ridge and thought it was at least as hard and exposed as the Traverse itself (although did not stay nearly as true on the Traverse).

11.5 hrs incl. time on summits, taking pics, and talking to people (but ran part way back)

Snow conditions were bad up top so we bailed... Great day though... I'll go back for the traverse later... Incredible area...

This is a nice alternative route, much easier than the standard. It was raining all weekend but I got a 2 hours window that I was able to use to summit.

My final 14er. Bittersweet as I had planned to traverse from El Diente. Woke up early in Navajo Basin to overcast skies and a drizzle. Opted for the standard route to finish up.

Summitted after doing the traverse from El Diente. Had a fantastic day. These were Josh Lewis's forst CO 14ers. The 4th class on top was more technical than anything on Capitol

We just beat the weather to the peak. After descending less then 1000' we heard thunder and the rain followed soon after. I thought the climb from the top of the dirty gully to the summit was no harder then third class. That said, the rotten, dirty rock makes for scary climbing.

Alex WoodAwesome Summit  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 28, 2012

Alex Wood

Left Navajo Lake at 6am knowing that there was a 30% chance of tstorms. Got to the top of El Diente via the godawful North Slope Route at 9:20am. Part of our group was having issues with exposure so we left the summit of El Diente at 10:00am and half our group decided to go down. We continued across the ridge and got to the saddle in 40 mins. A storm rolled in and we watched and heard the lighting from the ridge over Navajo Basin. It cleared up so we kept going. Went off route in the crux section and ended up climbing some scary 5th class choss. We summited Mt. Wilson at 11:30am and then went down the regular route back to lake. All in all, it took 8 hours roundtrip. The summit ridge to Mt. Wilson is spectacular and the coolest summit ridge I have ever done. One of my top five summits for sure

via Navajo Basin. Pretty exhausted still from outing on El Diente the day before, but went for it anyway. Route description given here pretty much spot on. Fun, especially last ~50'. Spectacular views (wildfires obvious, though). Back @ camp @ lake shortly after 18.00- enough time to break down camp & backpack out. Magnificent peak & great day! Glad Faith enjoyed it too.

We did the El Diente/Wilson traverse which was a lot of fun. I admit I'm not used to the Colorado altitude so I was definitely tired by the end of the day.

Exhilerating finish to the traverse. Rock of Ages TH was closed at this time, but may be open now. Had a long day from Woods.

Easy after just completing the North Ridge on Kit Carson. Bagged on the traverse to El Diente due to weather.
