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.

2 hours to Redcloud, not bad given Sneffels and El Diente-Wilson traverse in the preceding two days. Gorgeous views of the next objectives, Wetterhorn and Unconpahgre!

From Sunshine to Redcloud the rock becomes really really red. I bet this mountain is pretty in the green summer.

2/15/14- suffered over to redcloud after the hike up sunshine. i'm glad to have finally closed the loop on this mountain. #57/100 winter

5/21/11- climbed redcloud w/steve after two tough days chasing summits across a snowpack in silver creek drainage that felt distinctly mid-april like.

jim and i tried for UN 13,832 on day 1, but the combination of never ending snow drifts, high winds, low visibility and scary cornices chased us away. fortunately we were smart enough to break a trail down from the 13,020 saddle below redcloud.

the next day steve and i slogged back up silver creek. we found bits and pieces of the previous day's trail along the way, especially on the slopes leading to the saddle. this helped immensely! a resurgence of winter's wrath gripped us above the pass, but we were game for the worst and pushed onto the summit. the end feeling was pure bliss!
