Tried in Feb and got a late start when -5 temps stuffed us so far in our sleeping bags we didn't hear the alarm. The East Ridge is miserable sliding talus without snow cover. There is a magnificent East Bowl I want to come back and drop into some time.

And there wasn't any sunshine when I was on the summit. Hail, snow, and wind; I didn't stay long. 2X

Did the classic double summit, then down the loose scree fields into the S. Fork basin. Fun, fun, fun.

Brutal talus slog and sketchy scree to reach the northwest face. Some fun scrambling on the ridge near the summit. Amazing views!

Done along with 5 other 14ers during a week long backpacking trip in the San Juans. Bagged Sunshine and Redcloud with my little brother as his first 14ers. Good times!

Redclound and Sunshine in the morning. Saw an elk at 14,000 feet, which I thought was odd. Attempted Handies after, but got stormed out. Bagged Handies the next day.

Finally! Failed to reach this summit 2x due to weather and equipment failure. This day I had absolutely perfect weather and my equipment held up so I had no excuse. Some of the best views in Co. #20

Started at 4:30am from the Silver Peak route. We were worried about weather becuase it started to rain at around sunrise. The weather then cleared and it became a gorgous day. We got to the summit of Redcloud at around 8:30am. Then we went and tagged Sunshine. We had planned on doing Sun Dog, but the weather began to roll in. We then hung out in the old moraine below Sunshine for about and hour and half. These two peaks were my first summits in the San Juans and 14'ers 19 and 20! BEAUTIFUL area! Cant wait to come back

Summited with Redcloud. North Slopes route--loose and steep to the saddle. This being Sunshine, the summit was socked in with clouds. Go figure. There was an 80-year-old man near the summit.

We came over to Sunshine after climbing Redcloud. Again, I was the last of the group to make the top, I was pretty worn out after Uncompahgre, Handies, and Redcloud. The weather was good, though it was windy. We ate lunch, then went back over Redcloud and back to the trailhead. I slipped on some loose rocks and fell on my kiester on the way down. I scraped my arm a little bit, but nothing serious at all. We got back to the trailhead at around 1:30, packed up our stuff, and headed back to Denver. It was a long, hard weekend, but well worth it!
