taw6644Cool Ridge Hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 26, 2008


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.

Date Climbed: Aug 19, 2007


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.
