Date Climbed: Oct 1, 2011


Got a late noon start after the long drive to the TH. Made it to the summit just before 4, which was an island of clear sky surrounded by T-storms. Made it back to the TH by dusk and drove home in the dark, watching out for the many elk. First time I saw a beaver, which made it worth it. Challenging for being such a long hike. Gravel pile of a summit isn't seen till almost the end. Feels very remote.

I only hiked this one because it was on a damn list. Up Yawner gullies in an OK cirque of early season snow. The butresses on the neighboring 13ers, though, look much cooler.

30 miles of dirt road just to get to the trailhead. The hike is fairly long as well, 12 miles round trip. The valley is full of stepped beaver ponds, and is beautiful. Didn't see another person all day.

Date Climbed: Jul 15, 2009


First 14er and the first time using Summit Post as a trip planning resource. Trail head status and the numerous Trip Reports really made this an enjoyable experience. No surprizes / walked right up to the summit. Trip highlight - Love those Cochetopa Hills!

Quick hike up to the summit of San Luis from Stewart Creek TH. After summiting San Luis, traversed to the summit of Organ Mountain. Nice hike, beautiful weather, gorgeous views.

We found some delightful, un-ruined camping off of the FS road for a great night's sleep. In the AM, shortly after leaving camp for the Stewart Creek TH a mountain lion crossed the road right in front of my Jeep! The scenery along this route was better than anticipated. I loved the creek and the beaver ponds. There was still a lot of snow in the gully above timber line prior to hitting the steep uphill to the saddle. Higher on the peak, the snow was minimal. Beautiful day. I was dragging a$$ a bit, but enjoyed this plenty. After a quick lunch on the summit we descended, had a celebratory beer at the Jeep, cleaned up, and headed back to the Front Range.

StephanieLynnwinter hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 8, 2011


The trip started out rough for me due to very cold toes despite the air temperature being comfortable for winter. Had some route-finding issues and dense fog move in after dark. Couldn't see squat so we dug a snow cave assuming we'd have to bivy for the night. Fortunately clouds finally let up and we could make our way back to camp. Beautiful area in the winter. With Kiefer and my dog Zion.

Date Climbed: Jan 8, 2011


Climbed this bugger with Stephanie Lynn from San Luis Pass. Exceptionally bad snow, some route-finding errors and white-out conditions (at night) made for an epic climb that fortunately, turned out alright.
Castricone7 was with us for most of the trip.

NOT an easy mountain in winter.

Date Climbed: Jul 7, 2010


Done along with 5 other 14ers during a week long backpacking trip in the San Juans. PRISTINE is the one word I would use to describe the standard route of San Luis. The only place I've seen better wildflowers is west of the divide in the Indian Peaks.

Doesn't quite measure up with other San Juan summits. But at least it's off the beaten path--only a few other people in the area. Perfect weather all day.

Not much to recommend it as a peak, but an interesting remote area. Trip report
