GahugafugaYawner Gullies Ski Descent  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 17, 2008


Skinned from the mine to the summit and back. With road closures and snow conditions, this ended up being a 16 mile, 6000' day. Too easy!

crzyjtClimbed S Ridge, Skied Yawner Gullies  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 17, 2008


Climbed the South Ridge from the Equity Mine with a ski descent of the Yawner Gullies. It was an awesome day, but quite the slog with the climb out of the basin and rotten snow all the way down the 4x4 road.

This was my third climb of San Luis. A chipmunk rode home in the car with us. You can see him (along with some discussion) at this url: http://www.14ers.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=9610&st=0&sk=t&sd=a&hilit=chipmunk&start=15

chicagotransplantLoop Hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 22, 2007


Second ascent, climbed with Shanahan96 and Jamie Nellis. Loop hike with Baldy Alto and Stewart Peak. We descended to Nutras Creek and had to hike back to camp on the road, but it was worth it for all the nice fall color on the road!

HylianHero#9  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 5, 2001


This is by far my favorite 14er climb. Climbed from Stewart Creek to the summit, and made a loop back out the Colorado Trail. We saw some of the coolest mushrooms that looked like they had oatmeal sprinkled on top. Saw two people on the summit and that was it for the day. Beautiful mountain, beautiful climb, and a beautiful day.

DigglerS ridge from W Willow Cr 4WD parking  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 7, 2007


Left "TH" (improvised parking spot) at 9.05. Nice hike to summit, particularly through trees. Weather actually held out, which was nice. Summited at 12.57, my dad a few minutes later. Hung out there briefly, taking time to mark off peak on my 14ers shirt, take pic's, & crack celebratory brew (yummy L Hand Milk Stout). Took off 13.19 to avoid building clouds. On way back, traversed Pt. 12,540, which was fun- staying directly on crest, maybe 5.2 or so. Rest of descent uneventful.

Great to summit another 14er with my pops, & be amidst the beautiful San Juans (esp. just us- didn't see anyone else on trail the whole day!)- amazing area.

Date Climbed: Aug 25, 2007


Tried this mountain last year and got turned around by lightening. Have to admit I was dreading the 40 mile dirt road to the trailhead but took a bunch of CD's and had a great drive. Felt great to do a 12 mile 14'er and not be totally exhausted by the end!

slowbutsteadyLong and easy  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 26, 2000


Camped at TRH for Stewart Creek approach. Hiked out at 5:40am and on top at 10:45am. Few other climbers and a long 4 miles before the trail begins to climb to the ridge. San Luis is one hard peak to get a look at, kind of shy I guess.

kylerlottStewwart Creek TH  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 7, 2007


Really nice and easy climb up. The small crowd (10-12) was really nice compared to the peaks closer to the front range. Camped at TH, but if I did it again I would find a nice level campground before or after the TH then drive to it in the morning.

noahs213East Slopes Route  Sucess!


Got there and it took a long while on the dirt road. Nobody was on this peak. Very isolated. We camped out and climbed it. Saw the most beautiful rainbow. Made it to the top fast. Downpour when I came down.

cftbqStewart Creek night hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 10, 2007


Arrived at the TH just after midnight, intending to sleep a bit, but decided simply to head out and summit as early as possible. The stream crossings were time-consuming, and we (trishapajean and I) summitted at 7:10 am under glorious clear skies. The view from the top is amazing. Saw only two other people all day.

Kept up a trail-run pace all the way to the summit. Beautiful backcountry.
