Date Climbed: Jul 14, 2010


I did this one on a beautiful summer weekend in conjunction with Wetterhorn, Matterhorn, and Broken Hill, south across the valley from Uncompahgre. I subsequently bushwhacked down a southwards creek gully from Broken Hill back to my car.

Done along with 5 other 14ers during a week long backpacking trip in the San Juans. Hitched to the beginning of the 4wd road and hiked in from there.

KieferHard earned summit  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Dec 12, 2010


This is really weird, I climbed this peak EXACTLY 11 months ago, same day following the tracks of the same person (Ken Nolan). --que Twilight Zone music... ;o)

A hard day out under very windy, snowy conditions. Summit was covered in rime and by the time we left, so were we. 18 people attempted this trip (14ers.com) and 11 of us summitted.

Camped at the Nellie Creek TH, hiked in the blazing sun passing only two other hikers all day. Beautiful summit views of Wetterhorn and Matterhorn close by, and American Basin in the distance. One of my favorite areas...

If you want to escape the crowds and see aspens blazing yellow, hike Uncompahgre on a weekday in late September. Especially enjoyed throwing large boulders off the cliff from the summit. Awesome.

Climbed the east slopes from the Matterhorn Creek Trailhead. The hike was long but otherwise easy. The weather was perfect. On the summit there was no wind, and one could not see any clouds in any direction as far as one could see.

pacojgarzaWent for the combo.  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 13, 2010


After climbing 6 14ers in back to back fashion in the Buena Vista area I traveled to Lake City to climb the 5 nearby peaks and chose the Uncompahgre/Wetterhorn combo as my first climb there. Starting around 5:45 AM from the Matterhorn lower trailhead I summited Uncompahgre by 10 o`clock and then procceeded to Wetterhorn. The weather kept deteriorating as I went up the ridge and I finally aborted the summit bid at 13,800` due to storms approaching fast, luckily I was off the upper ridge when the sleet storm started, but the vivid lightning was a little scray. Eventually I returned to summit Wetterhorn 3 days later.

patascentWetterhorn and Uncompahgre in a day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 17, 2010


The summit pitch was more fun than I expected. Super fun to combine with Wetterhorn. Started at Matterhorn Creek and finished at Nellie. It took 12 hours to climb them both because we didn't have 4 wheel drive clearance and walked from the lower trail heads. So thankful to Elly's owners for the ride down the last 2 miles of the 4 mile road. (#4)

PrestonArizonaBest day ever!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 18, 2010


This was my first 14er. The weather forecast was sunny and warm. And it was. Started late from the Nellie Creek trailhead, and passed half a dozen others coming down. Very windy on the west face. Had the summit to myself except for a few marmots. Ate dinner in Lake City, then drove to Silverton over Cinnamon Pass at night. It was a great trail, a great adventure, and a day I'll never forget!

Meetup.com Fierce Planet hike. We started from the 4WD trailhead. The pace was pretty fast: we started around 6AM and got back to the trailhead before noon. The group got pretty strung out along the trail, but everyone made the summit. It was windy at the top. Pretty easy for a 14er, with awesome scenery. The next day we were going to do Handies Peak from Grizzly Gulch, so a few of us drove through Capitol City and over Engineer and Cinnamon Passes to the trailhead. More great scenery along that drive.

Just beautiful the whole way. I got a couple of nice shots of Wetterhorn.

I did four 14ers in five days. Not too frantic.

Thanks to a trailhead above 11k feet, it was a short morning jaunt. Cool peak, but too short. Trip report

shanahan96west gully snow climb  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 14, 2010


climbed uncompahgre w/milburn via its southernmost west gully on a wavering may weather day. a mixed bag of snow, driving wind and calm bluebird skies had us constantly changing layers! the gully itself was a fine, fairly low-angled climb, albeit a bit tiring in the top 500' without a reprieve from kicking steps.

slipped up the nearby 13er broken hill solo afterwards before weaving my way through the snow-covered iron beds on the way out.
