DigglerNW face/ridge, via 'Sundog'  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 7, 2006

Diggler

After renting a Jeep due to family only having one car (my mom & dad justifiably wanted a rest day after doing Redcloud the day before), left Crystal Lodge @ 6.27, arriving at the trailhead at 6.58. Leaving the trailhead at 7.10, got to the drainage turnoff in half an hour. Following the ridge through the woods, summited “Sundog” at 9.36. Elevation drop to plateau below Sunshine (& subsequent regain) a real bitch. Summited Sunshine at 10.51, dark & menacing clouds directly overhead. Departed summit at 10.57. Hauling ass back down, reached river junction at 12.45, & the parking lot at 13.13. Despite the grueling talus- & scree-slogging, it was a great day, & cool to bag a 13er en route too.

An absolute killer day! I never saw a soul…. it was like having the whole wilderness area to myself. Part of a 10 day 18 14,000 ft. summit solo climbing trip. Would go again.

The distance between Redcloud and Sunshine is mellow and easy hiking. This areas reddish gold soil was very unique to what I'm used to seeing closer to Denver. This climb was great but my trip through Lake City was a real dissapointment...nothing to do there so I just hung at my camp and consumed beer :)

A delightfil, simple walk from Redcloud. I shared a cup of tea with one individual at the summit. Just the two of us for awhile then he left. I stayed for awhile.

A very good day.
