colinpenceOne of the finest peaks...  Sucess!


...that I never saw (we climbed it in the clouds). I do remember some terrific columbines along the trail, and some fun scramblilng to reach the summit. I'd love to go back some day and experience the radical dropoffs and tremendous views I have seen in the pictures.

PhenomenalWomanAKA "Ladderhorn"   Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 16, 2009


Climbed from Matterhorn TH attempting to do Wetterhorn and Uncompahgre on the same day. Ran into a bit of dehydration/sickness before reaching the ridge. Decided to stick to Wetterhorn and was able to push through and summit. Actual climb was not as hard as expected, with the final summit pitch feeling like taking a ladder to the top. Thoroughly enjoyed the summit and amazing views surrounding us. A bittersweet moment to gaze upon beautiful Uncompahgre. Next time!

Best-laid plans had us climbing Wetterhorn in the wee hours of the morning, followed by the hulking mass of Uncompahgre around noon. While the weather held and puffy cumulus remained cheerful, some of our party could not make both peaks. Unwilling to abandon the others, I chose to savor the slopes of Wetterhorn and leave Uncompahgre for another trip. This peak was much easier than expected, delivering only a short, docile class 3 section just below the summit.

Solid rock and a fun summit pitch. The scrambling was so fun, it ended too abruptly. Also scrambled to the top of the Ship's Prow for a good view of the other climbers coming down the summit pitch.

Climbed via the Southeast Ridge from Matterhorn Creek. Saw many marmots from where the trail first reached treeline all the way to the summit. Good rock and near-perfect weather make this a hike to remember. The views of neighboring Uncompahgre and the central San Juans were incredible.

Date Climbed: Jun 27, 2009


Climbed Wetterhorn via SE ridge route. Good conditions on the ridge and its east side. There is still some snow/ice on the west side of the ridge. The final gully section was dry. Good weather, great views!

09/06/2010: Climbed Wetterhorn/Matterhorn combo from Henson Creek Road. Perfect weather, nice hike/scramble, - great day in San Juans!

Short but sweet.2nd 14er back in CO in 10 days! On the way down, saw at least 500 sheep in the alpine valley at about 12,000'. Pretty cool! Perfect weather.

With the family. The last bit isn't all that bad -- steep, but short.

Summitted around 10:40 with a flatlander friend who climbed Wetterhorn as her first 14er! Very fun, solid class 3 pitch to the summit, but didn't really enjoy some of the loose stuff just below it.

Second of 14 14ers in 11 days. Quickly became one of my favorite peaks when I saw it the alpenglow from the drainage below.

Date Climbed: Aug 2, 2008


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 road to Matterhorn TH. Fun scramble near the summit, but not as exposed as we had expected. I was feeling really good about myself on the climb until we passed a girl who had done the whole thing barefoot and was on her way down. Said she forgot her boots but still wanted to climb so she went barefoot.
