A long round trip across a lot of dull tundra. Some interesting technical walls. Great windbreaks for tents on the summit.

A couple of the folks hiking with us didnt have 4wd so we did this route from the Matterhorn creek TH. It was a bit longer and more elevation than doing it from the 4wd spot on Nellie, but I think it offers a more pleasant and scenic approach? Very cool peak, with views to kill for. The San Juans are pretty amazing.

I was from out of state and was very fortunate to partner up with 9 others to summit this mtn. The pre-dawn ride to the upper TH was unforgettable! It was a fun, successful day. For me though, it went too fast!

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.

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.

Ascended Unco first. Went up the west face, which was a bit scary when crossing the steep snow fields. Descended the main trail and ran back over to Wetterhorn. Tressa Breindel accompanied me.

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.

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.

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)
