I climbed this via the Airplane gully, which was ok. There are about 4 other routes on this mountain that I want to try! Awsome views!

Climbed up the snowfield/west chimney to reach the summit with the intent to continue over to Apache. However, approaching storm clouds changed my mind and thus descended the Airplane gully for a fun round trip of Navajo.

A fine day via Navajo snowfield, traverse to Apache, up west chimney. Added Niwot Ridge for a nice loop. See TR.

Fun climb. Summit was shrouded in clouds though which was kind of a bummer. Will have to go back and maybe do the snowfield or something.

My first "big" Colorado Peak. Bivvied at the foot of the glacier. A great climb.

SarahThompson3x: West Chimney (2x), Navajo Snowfield & North Face  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 28, 2005

8/28/05 - Traversed ridge from Apache. Navajo's West Chimney rocks! Such a fun, classic chimney with wild exposure below. Descended Airplane Gully - loose talus isn't so great but the airplane wreckage is definately worth seeing.

8/2/08 - 2nd trip, this time via Navajo Snowfield (which was still in good snow climbing shape, not icy) and the North Face. Also climbed Dickers Peck and Niwot Ridge before heading down Airplane Gully.

6/21/10 - Traversed from Apache and climbed up the delightful West Chimney (with a bit of snow and ice). Above the namesake 4th class chimney we climbed a fun low 5th class chimney system that I'd explored on the previous trip. Great scramble, always is, always will be.

Traversed Niwot Ridge to Niwot Peak, then to Navajo. Started down the gully, but didn't have our snow/ice gear so had to climb back up and across the ridge. A great day!

memorable west chimney climb with jamie nellis. frequent patches of snow and ice forced us to constantly evaluate what was/wasn't acceptable to have a safe climb. very enjoyable!

This is a nice summit to achieve in the center of the Indian Peaks.

Reversed route down chimney & snowfield for descent. Had to downclimb the Navajo snowfield quickly due to approaching storms. Would like to go back and climb the N. Face sometime,

I've summited twice since my first visit, once from Apache via the connecting ridge and up the West Chimney.

Pretty simple climb. 4th class. Need to cross an easy snow field. I didn't take crampons and just chopped steps. The actual summit is only 4th class. Fun solo climb. Descent route sucks.

Sunny and warm on the trail, but cold up high, with conditions exacerbated by very high winds. Can you say the phrase "biting spindrift" as your cheeks get wrapped around your ear lobes? Ascended the frozen couloir on thin, slippery snow. We were glad that most of the otherwise loose rocks were glued in place. Topped out via SE chimney on snow and a little ice. 5:00 up. Rapped the chimney with 30m to avoid slippery downclimb.

Sunny all day, with some high gusty winds while going up the gully; which made going by the airplane wreck eery as is sounded like it was trying to take off once again. There must have been some snow fall up there in the past couple days as the gully and summit was sprinkled with snow, most of which was melting quite fast by that afternoon. Glad to have gone up and down with gully without anyone ahead or below me.

A beautiful day in the IPW - that is once all the clouds were cleared out by the high winds!! We waited for the clouds to clear out and it was worth the wait. We had a spectacular fall day. Great visibility from the summit and a fun climb up the chimney.

This was my second alpine rock climb. Super fun-similar to the north ridge of Toll, some fun climbing between sections of scrambling. Several fun variations to the summit block- worth playing around on if the weather is holding. The loose descent down Airplane Gully is worth forgetting aside from the wreckage itself-something somber to reflect on as you curse the ground slipping out from underneath oneself.

umbra altaRoute Climbed: Navajo Snowfield Date Climbed: October 2003

This route almost killed me. Our attempt was late in the season, when the snowfield was down to alpine ice in many spots. A loose crampon and a shitty grip on my axe sent me sliding several hundred feet. The only thing that saved me was a desperate decision to dig in my frontpoints as a last ditch effort to stop. The resulting tumble changed my trajectory just enough to land me in the only patch of soft snow amongst dozens of huge boulders. Pure dumb luck. I had a puncture wound in my calf and a high ankle sprain that took months to recover from, but I'd trade that any day for knowing what it sounded like to break both my legs.
