14er Backpacking route

Postby Flyingsocks » Wed May 26, 2010 8:35 pm

Im looking to do a 3 day/2 night trip and include a 14er and hoping for some scrambling, not just a walk up.

Anybody have a good route? Second week in July. Probably wont have enough time to get down to the San Juans.

Thanks!

spend a few days chilin at the lake or go clamber up hagermen or trail rider pass
you could even work it into the four passes loop

What about the Blanca Massif group? Not a through area, but worth the trip. There is also the South Colony Lakes area with both Crestones and the easy Humboldt. Get it before you have to pay for it!

Willow Lake is unequivocally one of the most spectacular places I've ever been. Throw in Kit Carson and Challenger and you get a good dose of the sensational Sangres.
