Maybe my new favorite 14er, fantastic views and some fun climbing up top.

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!

Great climb up to the summit! The exposure isn't nearly as bad as some would lead you to believe.

Pretty cool, I'd seen it earlier, and had to do it. About half 4th class with many low 5th sections if staying on the ridge and summitting all towers. Very loose, especially the 1/3 closest to Matterhorn. approx 5:40 car to car.

I started about an hour before dawn, and the reward was having the summit to myself until I was ready to go. It is a great spot. The summit pitch, contrary to the frightening descriptions that often accompany it, is easy. It is fun and fast, and I can't imagine why people would rope up there in dry weather.

With Jim Randa (from Boulder). Somewhat windy but

otherwise a beautiful day. The summit pitch was much

easier than I expected. By far the most interesting 14er I've done.

7th 14er. As everyone else says stay as close to the ridgeline as possible. The scattered rock cairns were not much help.

When you are from New England, these mountains are a treat!

5 hrs round trip including Matterhorn Peak.

Wow! One of the coolest mountains I have been on. Great weather allowed us to head over and touch the top of Matterhorn Peak while in the area.
