Overview

Teakettle Mountain is a mountain summit in Ouray Country in Colorado. Teakettle climbs to 13,819 feet (4.112 meters) above sea level.
The trailhead - well, there is not trailhead, no marked trail, and actually no trail pretty much at all. The start of the hike is from Yankee Boy basin, park by the outhouse, walk about 50 meters up to road, and then start your scramble up...

Thanks Romek... I thought that not much has happened on that short trip, therefore not TR, and the mountain/rock has been already described...
Perhaps will write one day about my new climbing partner Michael Covington, he was a famous US climber in 60s (before I was born!)
