It was my third time on Halo Ridge, but I went over to 13,768 instead of Mount of the Holy Cross. I spent two nights in the Notch shelter acclimatizing before the trip to Peru.

The weather didn't look so good starting out but it held. Came from Notch Mtn shelter and carried on to MotHC.

Date Climbed: Oct 3, 1998


Went over and got 13831 before climbing Holy Cross via the standard route. On 7-7-07 we returned to Holy Cross. This time we did Holy Cross first and then 13831. We tried skirting Holy Cross some on the way back. The grain of the mountain can make this harder than regaining some elevation on the way past Holy Cross.

The only people we met on the Halo Ridge route to Mount of the Holy Cross was at Holy Cross Ridge, 13,831. Beautiful, but long day.

2nd summit after Holy Cross. Proceeded onward toward UN13248 afterwards. The view of UN13768 was incredible from the Halo.

I sure liked the portion of the trip from Half Moon TH to the summit of Holy Cross, but I stopped having fun on the Halo Ridge. The footing is pretty bad, on loose, often large talus. Fell down a few times when rocks came loose. My 40-lb, two foot tall dog really didn't like contouring on the rocks, and that put a damper on the day; if my baby isn't happy, I'm not happy!

Wasn't even aware this peak had a name till after the climb. It is pretty, offering nice views of HC and the surroundings.

A lot of fun! This mountain seemed like de ja vu after Mount of the Holy Cross; not only do they have nearly the same name, but the climbs are very much alike. Very enjoyable day in the mountains!

This was the year the Colorado Rockies had so much snow, and we were in deep snow much of the way on this climb. Ice ax saved my life on steep ridge at one point. Climbed with Aaron. Attempted it a week earlier with party of four but were turned back by the conditions.

Great hike / climb. I slept in the Notch Mountain Shelter to shorten the summit day. I started the morning out by climbing both summits of Notch Mountain. I couldn’t seem to find the easier routes to get me past the notch between the summits. I descended and ascended a ramp-gully on the cliff with a low-end class five move at the top. The exposure made things interesting! While I was on the ridge I was carrying almost a full load of backpacking gear (minus the tent), too much weight to carry along the Halo Ridge! If you do this route, really strip down your gear.

A really neat peak in its own right. A very short jaunt over from Holy Cross. Halo Ridge was a gem.

Erin and I used an awesome loop hike to summit Holy Cross and the centennial summit of Holy Cross Ridge (we'll be back for the bicentennials :-D).

We used Holy Cross's standard route. At daybreak we watched a rare, early-morning shower roll in over Mount Jackson and across Cross Creek. We sat in the rain about 200' below the summit for around half an hour before we resumed our climb. Then we carefully descended on wet rock to the saddle with Holy Cross Ridge, gaining our second summit quickly. We descended to the *gorgeous* Tuhare Lakes and used the lush Fall Creek Trail to return to the Halfmoon Trailhead. A trip report is available here.
