I climbed Redcloud on 7/7/11 and the weather was great. This was my 2nd 14er and the first time that I have done this much elevation gain in my life. I am 53yrs old and it took quite a bit out of me. I live in Texas so I had to acclimate a few days before. I arrived in Lake City on 7/3/11 and I did a couple of hikes to get ready for this.

I started at about 7:20am and made it to the summit at around 10:45am. There were about 5 or so snowfields to cross which was a pain but I managed. It was harder to get across them on the way down because the snow was softer by then. I passed about 4 or 5 people on the way up and I was the second one on top that day according to the register on top of the peak. I really like the way the peak looks on top with the red color. I did not spend very long on top, just about 10-15 minutes. I wanted to get down asap in case the weather got bad. I did have to take care of a couple of blisters on the way to the top. The view was spectacular on top and I am glad I did not quit about 3/4ths of the way up because I was really spent. Thanks for reading.

South ridge via Sunshine in winter with shanahan96. Coming off Sunshine was a little tricky with some icy snow then loaded slopes that required sticking directly to the ridge, including navigating a notch. Saddle to Redcloud snow on the tral but the rocks were dry.

Climbed Redcloud and Sunshine Peaks (standard) - the valleys were rich green and Redcloud's fiery red summit cone was a nice aesthetic touch to the scenery!

Considering the recent weather patterns (cold and damp with heavy downpours and lightning) we really lucked out on the weather! Cold in the am with fresh light snow and frost, bu warmed up with morning sun. With Deb and Astroclimber.
