Route Climbed: Stewert Creek Trailhead-North East Ridge Date Climbed: July 16, 2000
This was an uneventful climb. My sons Troy & Pat & me did see 5 elk across Stewert Creek just before the steep grunt to the ridge. I've tried twice before to climb this mountain from the Willow Creek Trailhead. The first time I ended up on San Luis Pass in a snow storm. The second time we (my wife and I) started down into the valley southwest of the peak when the clouds started rolling in. We decided to go back to the car and were glad we did. It began raining as we reached our car and was still raining as we ate breakfast in Creede..
