Brad SniderRoute-finding Issues  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 29, 2009

Brad Snider

After a foggy traverse, ended up climbing Mount Wilson from behind up loose class 4 ledges. Descended correct summit blocks, then went too far west and down north face. Paid for route-finding error with a slide and some cuts, but fortunately that's it. Eventually got back on track before thunderstorms hit.

Backpacked into Navajo Lake and then climbed Mount Wilson and Wilson Peak the next day. Socked in for about an hour until the clouds lifted and the weather held steady. A great mountain.

We were going to do the traverse from El Diente, got to El Diente, traversed to the Organ Pipe's, Snow was rotting out and post holing to rock, glissaded down, to Basin saw an up track going half way up, broke the rest and truely climbed them both on the same day! Rotting out snow on final pitch very nasty. 10 hours total from the lake.

Traversed over from Diente and glissaded down Mt Wilson's N face. The last move to reach the summit (the crux) was pretty sweet and airy!

Wow. What a surprising finish. I had glossed over a number of details when reading the route description which I left at the TH. Very enjoyable!

We managed to avoid the horrible weather in the Denver area and escape to the San Juans for a little mountain climbing! We backpacked into Navajo Lake and then climbed Mount Wilson and Wilson Peak the next day. The climb of Mount Wilson was great - enjoyed the final ridge immensely.

Eighth of 14 14ers in 11 days via the traverse from El Diente. What an amazing route! The best descent route was a bit unclear, but we managed to make it out unscathed. My favorite day of the trip.

This was my second climb of Mount Wilson. We approached from Silver Pick over Rock of Ages. There was still snow on the route which made the climbing easier than the scree it covered.

From camp at Navajo Lake, climbed the North Slopes of El Diente, performed the traverse to Mt Wilson, then descended Mt Wilson's North Slopes to Wilson Peak's West Ridge with my friend Keith. It is a common mistake to descend directly down from Mt Wilson instead of traversing to the east first, thus missing the official North Slopes route when descending Mt Wilson.

traversed to wilson after climbing el diente. the narrow section just before obtaining mount wilson's summit was gnarly! one of the few bright spots of a day filled with shotty, scree slogging.

Climbed with Shanahan96, JamieNellis and ATTM. Most of the traverse is done below the ridge, but the part on the ridge crest from West Wilson over the "coxcomb" to the summit as a lot of fun and very airy. Descended the SW Face, very loose up top and a long scree slog back to the trail, but a great way to avoid the crowds. We saw no one ascending or descending, only saw people on the traverse.

Not as bad or exposed as I anticipated; 95 minutes summit to summit. The first moves off of Wilson were spectacular!

My favorite climb of the three 14ers in this basin. Pretty straight forward route -- lots of cairns in most places. The last little stretch was a blast and exposure at least gets your adrenaline going a little. Also has the best view (of the three peaks) from the top. Gladstone looks awesome from this point. The long glissades down were great on soft snow.

Reached the top after traversing from El Diente. The 2000 foot glissade was amazing!

A Fun solo up Mt Wilson followed by an even better solo of the ridge to El Diente followed by an even better glissade down El Diente!
