miztflipNice Scramble  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 21, 2012


Climbed with Eolus and Sunlight while enroute from Chicago Basin to Ruby Basin. Nice little scramble.

chicagotransplantSunlight Creek  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 2, 2012


Second time up. This time came over from Sunlight Creek on our pack over the Sunlight Spire-Windom saddle. This high saddle is a pretty reasonable way to get from Sunlight Creek to Chicago Basin, but its a lot of tedious talus hopping with a heavy pack. In any case, it provides a nice alternative access to the crowds in Chicago Basin and allows you to combine a 14er trip with Jagged.

With views unlike other summits in Colorado. Jagged peak front and center with a sweep of the entire San Juan range in the background.

Alot more fun than I thought. Near the top, the scrambling was great, along with a beautiful summit and views.

Left Chicago basin early to beat the storms but turned out to be a good day weather wise.

indianabobMy first 14er  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 29, 2011


Left from camp in Chicago Basin at sunrise and made it up after getting bound up in a boulder field on Peak 18. Poor route finding made it a more interesting and challenging climb than it should have been. Magnificent day! Rain, hail and sleet on the way down but no problems.

seanpeckhamfinal day of 6-day solo trip from Elk Park  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 29, 2011


I spent 4 incredible and wet days backpacking around solo with a tiny tarp and a bivy sac (at times hooking up with some great people I encountered, but at other times having whole drainages to myself) from Elk Park to Chicago Basin, climbed Eolus on day 5, and on day 6 did Sunlight and Windom and went down to the train, which was delayed indefinitely (but turned out to only be a couple hours) due to two rock/mudslides. This was the only day of my trip that wasn't clear in the morning; it wasn't too clear what the clouds were going to do, but I saved Windom for last because it'd be easier to bail off of than Sunlight, and things even cleared up a bit on the way up, but the clouds were thickening on the top (and it was only 9-9:30) so I hurried back down (only to find it clearing up again on and off and not actually raining until I was back at camp). Windom was much more fun than I thought it would be (assumed it was just talus slopes the whole way), thanks to staying on the ridge (easy class 3, I'd call it) instead of following the trail out onto the face (why does it do that anyway??)

We may have crossed paths when you were on Windom. You probably passed us at some point. What a great day!

This summit ridge was more fun than I anticipated! I enjoyed the wide-open summit block area, perfect for sitting and snacking. It was a bit crowded at the summit, but this is a lovely peak. Descended to camp to be harassed by goats.

myrone2nd peak of the Chicago Basin 4  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 15, 2011


Headed over with my friend Bob at 11:02AM from Sunlight Peak. Crossed some snow coming over to the saddle/ridge approach then up to the solitary "block" summit at 1:17PM. Lots of people out on this glorious day. Short glissade on perfect snow on the way down and back to camp in Chicago Basin at 3:58. My 56th 14'er on this fine day...........Sweet!
