Date Climbed: Dec 16, 2017


with Darin Baker. Had to park just below the exposed drain pipe on the road due to a little bit of new snow. Still not much snow on the route, but there was plenty of ice on the road further up.

Date Climbed: Oct 8, 2016


With Rachael, southeast slopes via the saddle with Humboldt. Some fun scrambing over the ridge separating this saddle from Bears Playground. Good solid rock! The views from this summit are great as well, especially of the Crestones, very impressive from this angle. Weather was great so we climbed Humboldt on our way back to the car.

Ascended after hiking up Humboldt, then we ran out of water so stopped there instead of continuing to Colombia Point. Wasn't concerned about the wife and I, but the pup without water? NO WAY!

shknbkeRepeat from Spanish Creek  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 16, 2010


Climbed Obstruction with Sarah, Dominic, and Dwight after a steep backpack to treeline in the Spanish Creek drainage. This is a unique way to climb this peak. I had to return the repeat favor after Sarah has done so many 13er repeats with me. The views on this late afternoon winter day were out of this world!

SarahThompsonUnique route up Spanish Creek in winter 2x  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 16, 2009


1/16/09 - Backpacked to 11,800 feet in Spanish Creek which was no easy feat given the poor trail and mile of deadfall to cross. Set up camp and climbed "Obstruction Peak" at the head of the valley in the afternoon. The views were absolutely stunning and we summitted just before sunset. The main objective of the trip was a winter ascent of Kit Carson Mountain which we summitted the following day.

2/22/14 - Daytrip up Spanish Creek. Main objective was Columbia Point but we turned around at the Columbia Point - "Obstruction Peak" saddle because Columbia's east face was loaded and there was no avy safe line.

Date Climbed: Aug 13, 2008


Crossed over Obstruction on my way between Columbia Pt and Humboldt. Wasn't looking forward to going back over Pt 13290, or Humboldt for that matter, but that's the price of admission to the summit.

Date Climbed: Jun 19, 1993


This was my first climb of 13799. I didn't know it had an unofficial name at the time but I did know it was a ranked thirteener. Since I was climbing Kit Carson anyway I made it a point to summit both 13799 & Kat Carson (Columbia) on the way.

Well, it was on the way...
On the way back from Kit Carson and Challenger it would probably have been better to reclimb 13,799 than descending across and down loads of scree and talus to the South Colony Lakes!

Climbed with Ben, Tim, and Jim. Ben and I watched Tim and Jim come off of Columbia Pt and saw them traversing on the ridge above us when a huge slide ripped the E face apart. Ben and I were on our way to the face but met up with Tim and Jim instead of continuing on with our route.

Jim C., Eric Holle, Ben, and I summited this one after Jim and I came off Columbia Point. Saw a slide on Columbia's E face 45 min. after our descent. Thunder from the south drove us all back to S Colony Lakes.

I really enjoyed another high 13er. They are so uncrowded and what to me an actual mountain should be.
