EpicaFirst CO 14ner  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 5, 2000


I did this as part of a 3 day backpack trip. It was the first 14,000 ft mountain I had been on in CO and I was shocked at the number of people on the trail. Of course it was a holiday weekend, which made it worse.

My first Colorado 14er! Had to walk from the bottom of the road since I came on a motorcycle. See my Trip Report about doing seven 14ers in eight days.

Climbed via the South Slopes from Nellie Creek. A great hike through the Uncompahgre Highlands to the rugged summit plateau. The trail was in good condition and the crowds minimal. The views of Wetterhorn Peak and the neighboring San Juan peaks were excellent.

Date Climbed: Jul 12, 2009


Climbed Uncompahgre Peak from Nellie Creek TH (second time). Great weather in the morning after raining all night. Started at 5:40am and was back to the car 9:50am. Nice hike, great views.

09/05/2010: Hiked to the summit of Uncompahgre with my wife and a 5 year-old son (this is his first 14-er!) from Nellie Creek TH. Clear skies, but a little bit windy at the top. Great day in San Juans!

The summit of Uncompahgre is AMAZING for a variety of reasons and worth taking the long slog to get up high and enjoy!

Date Climbed: Jul 12, 2008


Ascended Uncompahgre via the Nellie Creek trailhead for our third 14er of our week long trip to the San Juans. Very enjoyable hike, the crux of the climb before the summit platteau was very enjoyable, i would say stick to the right at this portion. There is more solid rock to be found.

Climbed Uncompahgre, Handies, and Wetterhorn on consecutive days from our Silver Spur Motel "base camp" in Lake City. The San Juans are amazing! Recommend high clearance 4wd for Nellie Creek Trailhead.
