Lots of Snow. Met some buddies up there and climbed Sunshine and Redcloud in one day. Very Long Day. #3 and #4 14er Climbed.

Great day in the mountains. Descended the northwest slope. I don't recommend this unless you love 2000 ft of loose talus, but it saves you from re-climbing Redcloud. The talus was hell on my dog's paws.

Did the combo and descended the scree slope from the saddle....definitely steep and loose. A great day none the less!

Did the traverse on over from Redcloud, and enjoyed great weather throughout. A warning, however: Sunshine looks a lot closer to Redcloud than it really is... This one was my 20th 14er.

I shot over from Redcloud, took a little longer than I thought, but the ridge was a nice little jaunt over to Sunshine. I would really like to make one big loop going the standard way then from Sunshine go down and over "Sundog" and then drop down from there onto the main trail or vice versa.

Standard loop. Climbed Sunshine first via the saddle between it and Redcloud. Some loos crap up to the saddle but almost all the mountains I've done this summer have been on rotten slopes so getting sort of used to stuff moving under my feet.

Decided to go a different route since I had already done Redcloud prior. Not sure of the route name but it was the first time I got a little nervous on a descent. Great adventure!

Reached the top a little after noon - not a cloud in the sky! Love that unpredictable Colorado weather!

Came over from Redcloud then down the south slopes on a beautiful June day. There is still a lot of snow up there.

Climbed sometime in the late '90's. Don't remember too much about the climb, trail-ran it (and Redcloud) I think ......

GahugafugaN Face Ski Descent  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 28, 2007


Bootpacked the N Ridge from the Redcloud-Sunshine saddle. Skied from the summit out onto the NW face. At 13300', turned onto the N face and skied through a narrow, deeply inset chute. Skied to 11300' where the snow ran out. Lugging 40lbs of gear makes even the smallest 14er a challenge.

Following poor weather the day before, we headed back up to summit Sunshine. We decided to climb Sundog on our way up- wow, LOTS of vertical fast on this hike! Things were a breeze once we came off of Sundog- we're glad we took an alternate route to yesterdays hike!

descending from the saddle involves lots of unpleasant scree
