RMdaytripsgrlStay on Route!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 7, 2016


Did this as a double after Sunlight because we thought "class 2" = "easy". I would not call this class 2 once on the ridge, Class 3 in my book - but we got off route on the ascent-there are cairns EVERYWHERE on this mtn and we were fooled. What we ended up on was some very sketchy very class 3/4 loose gullies and boulders on the N face below the ridge. On the way down (and after a mini-meltdown) the route was much easier to follow and just easier in general. Whatever you do, stay near the ridge crest!

Got kind of a late start out of camp due to some early rain, but was able to get this one in. Nice easy scrambling on big blocks.

Date Climbed: Aug 29, 2012


Climbed over from Sunlight and just got Windom before early storms kicked in. This was a straight-forward, more "relaxing" scramble that I'd like to return to sometime!

shanahan96into the hailstorm  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 29, 2012


sunlight was sunny....windom was not. i climbed up windom for 15-20 minutes in the worst hailstorm i've ever experienced. it wasn't pleasant, but i wasn't turning around unless i heard thunder. once it relented, all was good. it was a tad slippery, but i was never put in an uncomfortable situation.

the summit was surprising!

DigglerFINALLY  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 11, 2012



w/ Dad via standard route.

Left campground (~10,900’) @ 6.03. Hauled ass to Twin Lakes (light sprinkle ~7.30- WTF?!! Trepidation ensued), but then ½ hour break.

After that, fun scrambling! Summited @ 11.31.

WOW- after 21 years (!!!), I’m…done!!!! A very weird idea, feeling, & concept! On the one hand, WHAT a goal (for me @ least) to have finally completed; on the other hand, all of the former unknowns are now knowns- there are no more CO 14er blanks on the map anymore. What a paradox. Such is life, I guess…

Enjoyed spectacular views of the San Juan backcountry, trying to soak it all in. Finally left @ 12.24. Weather fluctuated between rain & sunny- ah, Colorado! Finally back @ camp @ 17.11.

Enjoyed great freeze-dried food @ BEER before dropping into sleep.

Fun hike with my son, brother and Duchess. We scrambled on the south side, and then found the easy normal trail down. Duchess was leading the way and she got us of the track :)
