Date Climbed: May 7, 2017


I went the couloir east of the "correct" one, but it worked out okay. Descended the correct one for a quick morning jaunt. Trip report.

Up the S Ridge. We did a steep descending traverse down the loose S slopes to the avalanche gully. The glissade was fun! If we had our axes we would have descended the gully from much higher. With Kerry.

rmjwintersWhere's the trail?  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 28, 2016


Great day overall! Having said that, where the hell is the trail? I didn't find Roach's description overly helpful. There are use trails everywhere within a quarter mile of the TH. Anyway, I just bushwhacked and made a straightline up the hill with plenty of deadfall and cliff bands. I never found the trail going up or coming down. Once above treeline it's a piece of cake.

nice hike with Duchess, interesting bush whacking on the way up, weather co-operated although we could not see all 14ers from the summit since it was cloudy and drizzling rain and snow on and off…. Duchess did great. Got two organic chicken steaks after this one….

Very steep, short but time-consuming slog. Appropriately named.

Snow is melting fast, we were able to pick one of the snow lines from bottom of the gully all the way to the top, great views, no complaints! Blue bird day, no wind, 50° on top!

ScottLackawanna  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 30, 2013


Five 14ers.com members and I climbed Lackawanna Peak today. We climbed the south couloir.

With the current conditions, Lackawanna was much, much easier than Bull Hill (which was climbed the day before). After ~100 yards of postholing with snowshoes, the couloir was in perfect condition. The route was pretty fast, very direct, and fairly easy.

We had some pretty good conditions for glissading, but we would punch through in places, so you couldn't do a continuous glissade. Still, it was a quick trip down.

It was a good climb.

Date Climbed: Jul 5, 2010


S Fork Lk TH and NW slopes route up Lackawanna. Then over to Casco and on to French via Frasco BM. Descent into basin to E of Casco-Frasco Col from about half way down to col from Frasco BM (loose red gravel; perfect for descending), and back down to TH. A wonderful ridge-y loop. Nothing beyond 2+.

Nice snow climb up the gully to the south from CO 82. Enjoyable mountain, tougher than the stats indicate.

Beautiful day to climb some snow free south slopes on another Sawatch centennial. No wind and warm temps. Clouds started rolling in for this next storm on the drive home. 3500 vertical in 1.75 miles each way. Pretty steep but got up in 2 hours!

Date Climbed: Jan 14, 2012


I sorta started from the Upper Lake Creek TH, and kinda had the South Slopes route in mind. But I didn't stick with any plan. I just went where I wanted. I ended up following the (pretty dry) gully up to, oh about 12k. Then, turned RIGHT and hit that ridge before following it over to Lackawanna. I came down the true "South Slopes" route - at least for a while. I made my way back to my tracks up the gully and back out. Did a little post-holing and slipped a couple of times, but didn't take snowshoes. Wore microspikes a bit. Conditions were grand. First calendar winter centennial - and solo (with dog).

Sarah SimonUp the NW Ridge, down the South Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 4, 2011

Sarah Simon

We ascending up the NW ridge across Pt 13660, then descending via the South Ridge. NW ridge was full of snow, much of it steep and hard-pan. South ridge was pretty loose / talus and sand. Doing this peak as a circuit route this time of year, with still-heavy snow-pack, was like doing two very different mountains in two different seasons in one day.

KieferVia Casco's Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 26, 2009


For basically just a lump, Steph and I made this piece of crap as hard as one could make it, not intentionally. Hiked up Lackawanna Gulch, did a lot of traversing and downclimbing the far ridge before we gained the ridge we needed below Casco then remembered we had plans we needed to keep.
Scrambled the ridge over to Lackawanna (so as not to waste the day) and bushwhacked the west slope back to the TH.
Long day.

Date Climbed: Feb 20, 2009


never heard of anyone NOT summiting lackawanna, but it took me four tries in winter to get up this SOB!

finally made it by prodding around the gully on the south slopes before cutting over to finish along the south ridge. the postholing and weather were nowhere near as horrible as they've been in the past. that made a big difference.
