Date Climbed: Jul 28, 2014


The drive up into Burns Gulch wasn't as bad as it looked from below (Animas Forks). Short drive in. Had the whole basin to myself.
Comboed with Jones, Crown and N. Crown Peaks. Weather threatened all morning but I lucked out with the rain.

Plan on combining other peaks for a full day (I did Jones and American) but the views are beautiful. I'll be doing this one again just to sit and enjoy...

Date Climbed: May 20, 2012


Was certainly steeper than it looked! From below in Burns Gulch, the snow looked maybe mid-30s, but Shawn took consistent slope readings in the mid 40s all the way up! Great line, though, and a nice direct finish. Descended the ridge directly to the Jones-Niagara saddle.

Date Climbed: Aug 3, 2011


Climbed it from Burns Gulch. We planned on climbing Jones as well but the sound of thunder across the valley made us retreat. But when the weather got better we walked up Eureka Mountain later in the day.

I went from Burns Gulch. There was about 2 feet of snow in the upper basin. I climbed a direct snow line before the Jones/Niagara Saddle.

Not the easiest way to get these 3, but this turned out to be the last of 3 13ers on the day as I traversed over from Jones after climbing American via the Independence Couloir.

altitude14erRoute Climbed: East Ridge via Burns Gulch  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 25, 2009


A fantastic route, except for this small and easy path up Niagara, it would otherwise be very difficult as most of the peak is rotten 5th class nightmare routes...tagging the nearby Jones Mtn was well worth the extra effort. Watch the falling rock on Niagara, falling rock on the East Ridge deposits itself into the upper reaches of Burns Gulch!!

Date Climbed: Aug 19, 2006


Climbed American, Jones & Niagara from American Basin. Not the best way of nabbing these three peaks, but my friend was climbing Handies so I made this route work. The scree slope up to American's west ridge was rather treacherous and I had to reclimb Jones after summitting Niagara.

Date Climbed: Oct 27, 2007


Climbed from Jones and American, basically followed Gerry Roach's "American Pie" route from his 13ers book.

Surprisingly not much snow on the south sides of these peaks, almost no need for gaitors even!

watch out for the marmots that'll ride back in your car, didn't notice the one that hitched a ride with me until it bumped the exhaust the next day (and made the jeep smell like burned hair for a few days)
