seanoFrom Quartz Creek  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 7, 2016


Though the peak is not that exciting, the area's geology is interesting. I made it to Quartz Meadow in a stock Element, but the San Juan River ford was a bit dicey. I was planning to do Unicorn and Montezuma as well, but got frustrated by the crusty snow. Trip report.

chicagotransplantSummit Trio  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 17, 2016


With Rachael. Southeast slopes of Summit Peak from Treasure Creek, then back to the trail and around to "The Unicorn" and Montezuma before retracing the trail down. Beautiful area, nice wildflowers!

jczogSouthern Approach  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 12, 2013


Took southern route up into the bowl and worked our way back north before finally finding a trail. This trail seriously disappears more than it appears. About 15 minutes of hail on the way to the summit which stopped abruptly 10 meters from the top :) Beautiful views all around and worth the trouble, but the lack of real trails around treeline made this very difficult. I think going up the trail at the right of the parking area might be easier, then moving along the Continental Divide Trail instead.

Date Climbed: Aug 20, 2006


Climbed this 6 years ago from the Little Blanco Trailhead outside Pagosa Springs. Round trip was about 22 miles. I remember it was the longest hike I'd ever done at that point.

Wet conditions but the beautiful waterfalls along Treasure Creek made the whole climb worthwhile!
