OnagerW/ Redcloud  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 21, 2015


Hiked 14,034 ft. Redcloud Peak and 14,001 ft. Sunshine Peak on Saturday and then 14,048 ft. Handies Peak on Sunday. So far I've climbed 35 Colorado Fourteeners!
On Saturday I drove to the Grizzly Gulch trailhead and car camped. I hit the trail around 5AM and quickly hiked through the woods to treeline. I gained the ridge to Redcloud and made the summit around 9AM. I then hiked down to a col and then up again towards Sunshine, arriving at the summit by 10. This added over 2 1/2 miles to the trip and an extra 1000 ft. of overall elevation but it was well worth it because I beat the crowds and had the summit to myself. I then backtracked up the trail to Redcloud and headed back to the trailhead, which I arrived at by 1PM. From the trailhead I drove west towards American Basin and spent the night at the trailhead.

Nice trail along the saddle. Didn't stay long due to inclement weather nearby.

#1 7-5-15 about one hour each way and worth it. Some of the trail is frustrating talus, but one can't have red carpet all the time! Fantastische Gesellschaft.

Date Climbed: Feb 15, 2014


East Ridge from Mill Creek Campground with shanahan96. Snow from the bottom of the road, but the lower slopes was not that deep and almost "spring" condition. Postholing in the upper trees surprisingly not that deep, but we kept snowshoes on all the way to the summit. Just under 12hrs RT including Redcloud.

Climbed over Redcloud to Sunshine, got lazy, and decided to descend the Northwest Face. Well, I ended up getting stuck in the wrong gully, and that turned out to be pretty bad experience (steep, very loose, crumbling rock with some Class 3 mixed in). Ugh. I'll know better next time.

Easy stroll through light snow/slush across the saddle to Sunshine. Cool but very nice weather! With Astroclimber and Deb.

Another easy 14er as Trisha and I approach finishing. My 53rd, her 52nd, Cimarron's 5th. Climbers who had come up the alternative route on the west side recommended against going down that way, so we re-traced our steps. Good trail all the way.

Got a late 1pm start after making it to the TH from Ouray. Warm, dry, breezy conditions with no snow to be crossed. Finished at 8pm.

Descended the gully between Sunshine and Sundog. Rough descent, but pretty once lower in the basin.
