chicagotransplantGood Spring Conditions  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 12, 2012


Second time, this time with Ben and Whitney. Went up the standard route, not too much snow but still holding some large patches as you gain the ridge. We didn't use snowshoes or ice axes. The summit gully is dry. Access road blocked by downed trees about a mile below the 4WD trailhead, about 4 trees all of which are large enough caliper to require a chainsaw.

Date Climbed: Sep 18, 2011


Camped the night before along Nellie Creek road as far up as my car could get (1st creek crossing). Hitchhiked up the rest in the morning. A few inches of snow fell 2 days before, which made the not challenging trail more fun. After tea at the summit, I headed back down, returning via the basin south of the peak via a trail the reconnects with Nellie Cr. Rd. south of the TH. The trail was muddy from the rapidly melting snow but I made it back in good time to have a dinner of pizza with lima beans and carrots on it in Lake City.

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

sevenviiUncompaghre from Matterhorn Creek TH  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 7, 2011


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.

Date Climbed: Jul 3, 2010


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.

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.

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...
