Beautiful weekend in the Matterhorn Creek Basin. We climbed Matterhorn Friday evening, Uncompahgre on Saturday and the great Wetterhorn on Sunday. Super fun climb and a great cap to the weekend. Fun route!

Good times till I rolled my ankle on the way down which slowed my descent

Date Climbed: Jul 1, 2015


With Megan Berry. Standard route. Descent made more interesting by joining the Wetterhorn-Matterhorn ridge close to the low point between the peaks, and scrambling over to Matterhorn Peak. Puncture on the drive out to Lake City. Damn.

Nice route on East Ridge. Do not do what I did. I stayed on the ridge proper and was lured by cairns way out right onto the east face a few hundred feet below the Ships Prow. Rock was loose and time was wasted. I made it back to the notches but it was annoying. Stick right beside the Prow all the way and you will be good.

Mary and I did this one after a warm-up on Handies the day before. The meadows and wild flowers were amazing.

climbed Wetterhorn Peak, 14,016 feet elevation. We left the trailhead at 5:30am, summitted at 10:00am and got back to the car at 1:00pm. This was our first time visiting the San Juan Mountain Range.

A very fun and pretty climb from the Matterhorn TH with perfect weather. Made summit with hubz on our 14th wedding anniversary, which was cool.

Second time up, surprisingly dry for this late in October, I wasn't even planning on climbing it but it looked so dry from Broken Hill that I just couldn't resist!

Drove to the Matterhorn Creek trailhead planning to hike the following day but the weather looked good so I started up the trail. The weather held so I was able to enjoy an evening on top.

SenadRGreat mountain.  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 9, 2014


This is one of most scenic Colorado 14ers! Group of four of us made it to the top around 8:20. Weather was perfect, views fantastic, in one word, San Juans are the best!

Ditto what Ericd said. If anticipating busy summit, recommend helmet so you don't have to worry (as much) about rocks accidentally being kicked down from above you.

Date Climbed: Jul 6, 2014


Enjoyed every minute of this short class-3 climb! After camping in the flat meadows, trail gave a gradual grassy ascent with just a little bouldering. SE ridge is obvious and was surprised how high the actual dirt path continues. To get to the Prow, below the summit, I took an east face variation which worked well to a notch where intermediate ledges led up to the perfect summit plateau! After only a few minutes on top, we enjoyed a special treat from the sky -getting buzzed by an airplane!

Solo from 2WD trailhead. The final pitch was wet which made things spicy but overall a great day.

Climbed from Matterhorn Basin - this has definitely got to be one of the best standard 14er climbs out there!

Date Climbed: Aug 24, 2013


West Fork to summit to East Fork to Middle Fork to West Fork. Saw about a dozen people in the hour around the summit but not another person anywhere around off the 14er trail in three days. The way to do it.

Made a solo jaunt up the Wetterhorn. Ran into 4 other friendly climbers on the peak, which kind of surprised me for a Tuesday (I'm obviously not from CO).
Also watched a massive sheep drive halfway around the mountain, which was pretty entertaining. Saw a Volvo at the upper trailhead.

Camped at the Matterhorn Creek trailhead, and hiked up the Southeast Ridge. Great hike, with a fun final scramble up to the top.
