Up Queens Way to Apache, over to Dickers Peck (ran into some people I know who loaned me a harness and belayed me up. Then, up the North Face of Navajo, over to Niwot Ridge, and down Airplane Gully.

Amazing view. Even though I left early I still managed to get rained on. I saw a ton of Pika on the way up

Climbed via the Airplane Gully with Marco and his friend Jeff. We started around 5AM, and it was still dark. We did have the nearly full moon. We were concerned about clouds rolling in before we reached the gully, but it turned out to be nothing to worry about. It was, however, pretty windy and chilly. There were only a handful of hikers going for Navajo, but there were the usual crowds of dayhikers near Long Lake.

This is a great peak, the airplane wreckage makes it a lot more interesting.

Date is a guess, from the few years I lived in Colorado.

I do remember inspecting the place wreck debris.

Via Niwot Ridge. Perfect day. No wind, no clouds, no heat...perfect! Climbed with Brenta. Descended by airplane gully.

I've been eyeing this peak for years and finally got around to climbing it. Well worth the trip.

Nice hike, but HORRIBLE winds. On our descent, we watched the beginnings of what would turn out to be a LARGE forest fire.

Sarah SimonNavajo snowfield and northface  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 30, 2011

The snowfield was plenty steep, but the ice was minimal. Climbed via the North Face. Opted for the crack up the pink granite just below the top...and the squeeze under the dark band of rock (bomber hand-holds on grippy flakes, crappy, down-sloping footholds) reminded me just how lousy of a rock climber I am in my Scarpa full-shank mountaineering boots vs. my rock shoes! Pathetic! Had to talk my way up and over that section. :) Lunch at the summit, then descent via Airplane Gully which I think is the spawn of pure evil. The scenery is great and the wreckage makes for high drama, but the loose rocks on a steep, gravel slopes just frankly sucks.

What a cool summit! Loved every minute minus the scree-fest on Niwot. Looking forward to returning for the Navajo Snowfield and technical route.

Took an alternate route up the north face that was about 5.2-5.3. Awesome climbing on solid rock! Would like to go back and get Dicker's Peck. With Kiefer.

Climbed up airplane gully. Topped out by interesting chimney (4th class?) in stead of standard route. Descended west chimney. Good route but I think harder climbing down than up. Up Apache and down the East Ledges. Was going to attempt Dickers but was waaaaaay too cold/windy. Fun day!

We thought we were climbing Airplane Gully, but we took the gully to the right, which turned out the wrong gully. I enjoyed the more difficult climbing, but I don't think those in my party did. Ended up doing some easy 5th class face climbing.

Pete Castricone

With Ripper333. After a long traverse from Shoshoni and Apache, we climbed the north face. Definitely some airy class 5 moves (nice work, Kim!), but after the Kasparov, no big deal. We didn't even stop on the summit. Descended to Niwot Ridge for another very long traverse.

Took Airplane Gully route. Attempted via Niwot Ridge but an incoming storm scared me from making it past the summit of the ridge.

An absolutly wonderful climb. We climbed the north face and finished with another 5.3-ish chimney to the summit. A super great day!
