Awesome climb, perfect weather! Drove straight from Denver after last-call at the bar for 1.5 day excursion, so unfortunately we didn't make it up Uncompahgre. Started below 10K due to vehicle limitations, so it was a really long day. I don't recommend this climb after last-call, LOL.

Fantastic overnight at the base of the Wetterhorn. Made summit bright and early. Checked our watches and decided to do the traverse over to the Matterhorn for a dual summit afternoon. Beautiful day.

Summited without any views due to the looming clouds. It was a LOT of fun, though!

Wow! What a great climbing experience I had on Wetterhorn—my 6th fourteener! Perfect weather and wildlife galore including a big white shaggy mountain goat encountered on the descent. The Class 3 pitch below the summit was great fun and really not that hard. The most enjoyable peak I’ve done to date.

A fantastic climb. One of my favorites to date! The snow pack in the San Juans is really low this year making it easier to climb these peaks in early June.

Had the summit to myself today. Used snowshoes in some places. The snow was a little sloppy later on the way down. This was a particularly rewarding summit since I was chased down by lightning near the prow when I was climbing with my brother over ten years ago.

Someone had left a woman's bra tied to the summit post ... must have been a fun climb.

This climb rounded out my first trip to the San Juans, that started the love-affair with this range that continues today.

I summited Wetterhorn the day before Uncompaghre.

Again, I had the entire mountain to myself. The snow was fairly minimal with some decent snowfields in the upper basin but the wind was absolutely terrible! Some of the fiercest wind I've experienced. It made the final pitch pretty sketchy.

I got down, and went & had an awesome dinner back in Lake City at this Italian restaurant then drove back up and camped for uncompaghre the following day.

A hike you don’t forget: 30+ years ago we spent a glorious morning hiking the meadows and ascending the “staircase.” The challenge was to focus on the rock while trying to ignore the breathtaking view. With friends Hank Hassell and Helen Carney one fine day!
