Nice day with Aaron and Prakash. We were part of a big group from 14ers.com, but since we started an hour behind them we decided to break our own trail up a different ridge. As usual the views of the Sangres in their winter glory were impressive. Long day as a daytrip from Denver, but doable.

Hiked up to Lakes of the Clouds the night before. Went up the side of the connecting ridge just southwest of the lakes. Tons of scree. Once you get to the top its a fun, quick little ridge hop to the summit.

I had hiked up to Lakes of the Clouds on 3 weeks ofter shoulder surgery and cam back 5 weeks later to do the peak. I found a section of an improved trail on the way up. It soon disappeared I assume due lack of use and maintenance.

hiked in the sangres w/mike to avoid the snow-laden, northern mountains. light snow in the trees and barren slopes higher up made for a lovely, december cruise with necessary heavy gloves and a biting wind serving as the only signs of the true time of year.

is the snow coming or is a repeat of winter 2006 heading our way?

NE Ridge via Gibson TH w/ shanahan96. Not much snow, no need for snowshoes and the ridges were mostly dry except for a thin cover. Cold and windy, but when is it not at 13k in December!

9/16/06 - From Gibson TH. Intended on climbing the south ridge, but horrible winds forced me to reconsider. Took a more direct line up a very shallow couloir on the west face. It was composed of loose talus, but worth the trade off with the wind. Topped out just north of the summit and it was an absolute battle with the wind to the summit. Went on to UN 13524 and intended on continuing to UN 13513 but the wind simply wouldn't allow me to pass near the saddle!

3/3/12 - Southeast ridge from Gibson Creek. Deep snow, typical Sangre sugar.

Climbed with Ben on the first day of climbing on our 12 day Sangre de Cristo trip. We hit the South Ridge just as a small storm hit making it a fun finale to the day with plenty of exposure and a class 4 move. We also climbed Pt 13,524 that day.

Wonderful summit views. The last two hundred vertical feet of scrambling has just enough exposure to get your heart pounding. Great fun!
