Interesting day. Had a little snow shower move in while above 14000' and then a little fog for the descent. By the time we were back in the basin, it was sunny again.

Carried my son, Dave, up in a kiddie pack. At age 1 year, 10 months, he was the youngest person to summit this big friendly mountain.

Great day in the morning! This is a splendid place to take a hike.
If we could do it again, we'd take our time and
definitely take some more cameras.

I climbed with my brother/SP member Woodie Hopper. We camped between Uncompahgre and Wetterhorn & intended to summit both. Our attempt on Wetterhorn the next day was aborted near the summit due to an ominous building storm.

An EXTREMELY windy day and very cold. I had to keep hiking at a fast pace to stay warm. Frost lined everything in the tent that morning when I woke. With the exception of 2 people, I had the mountain and basin all to myself. Despite the wind, it was a good time. Very pretty area.

My wife and I climed to the peak in one hour and 45 minutes. What a beautiful fall day. WE saw many groups on the way down. IT was my 48th 14er and my wifes 43rd. What a great hike for the fall. We stayed at the crystal lodge iN Lake City the night before and Crestd Butte the night of. The following 2 days were the first fall storms. Happy trails!!!!! A must do trail!!!!

I went up in the late afternoon, gambling (correctly, fortunately) that the storm clouds were done doing what they do. As a result, I had the place to myself.

I had the summit all to myself for 45 minutes. The only people I saw all day were a few folks on my way down. I'd wanted to do this peak since seeing it from the summit of Redcliff in July and knew a mid-week September day would give me the solitude I was looking for. The aspens along Nellie Creek are in full color making for a beautiful drive. Great day!

Good one for a flatlander. Pretty easy, even with snow on the trails. I've done worse climbs- this one was just a slow trudge. Great views!

Memorable climb to a comfortably large summit with beautiful weather. Exact day of the month escapes me. Climbed with neighbor Rob Ostner.

2:30 up. Nice views on excellent trail with nothing more than class 2. The actual trail ascends the second scree gully that you come to. The views down the face from the summit are worth the walk.

Woodie Hopper

Approached from the north and ascended via west gullies, camped between Uncompahgre and Wetterhorn. Attempted Wetterhorn as well but was foiled by lightning near the prow.

This would have to be my favourite of the 14ers. It's a great hike up, through wonderful open alpine meadows. Next time I will camp enroute as opposed to at the trailhead. But even still, its a great hike.
