GeorgeJamesTraverse from Redcloud  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 2, 2008


Over from Redcloud Peak on a fine trail and a fine day. Descended the Northwest Face, returning to the Silver Creek Trailhead. I didn't mind the loose scree here all that much, but it was certainly a little tricky, especially in the gully section, and I imagine that I would not have liked going up this way. My first San Juan summits, woohoo!

I really enjoyed the hike over to this mountain. It lengthened the day a bit, but hey why not try to summit if it is so close.

A nice traverse from Redcloud Peak. Hairy snow conditions in the basin gullies made for an wet, on-edge descent.

Date Climbed: Apr 25, 2008


Hiked in via Mill Creek...the most noteworthy scree I've ever encountered. Didn't hit any contiguous snow until 11,000'. ridges were heavily corniced, an ice axe was a must in short sections.

2/15/14- second winter hike of sunshine, w/mike. snowshoed all the way to sunshine's summit. set off an avalanche slamming a trekking pole into the summit's snow after returning from redcloud! really? the northern san juans have a very unstable snowpack currently.

3/8/08- finished off three years of nightmares with a winter summit of sunshine peak! summited with jamie, sarah and prakash on a beautiful march day. #25/100 winter

quite the change from a horrid weekend attempt of sunshine in march 2005. glad to have this one under my belt!

We went over Redcloud and climbed to Sunshine. It was a pretty easy ridge, but definitely a tiring hike back over Redcloud and down.

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 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.
