Great trip with old friends. Outstanding views from summit. Yes, four people can huddle under a makeshift poncho tarp in a hail storm, cook, and eat dinner.

Final Colorado 14er! Yahoo. Took me 16 months to do them all. Great feeling. Came back the next day on a different route to get 3000' as this was a combo with Sunlight. #58!!!!

Almost didn't make it back down the mountain due to hail, lightening, and bad weather. However, it was worth it in the end!

Started out the hike in the rain, but it cleared up as we went higher. Turned out to be one of the more decent mornings weatherwise. the entire weekend was rainy -- never been in this much rain before. Fun little hike to the top -- a few spots with a little exposure. Views from the top are incredible -- the Needle Mountains have some impressively sheer faces. Met Tiffany and her crew on the way up (see below). Rained coming down so we post-poned Sunlight til the next day.

We climbed this mountain after Sunlight. Fun rock scrambling and airy summit with very nice views (especially of Sunlight and Jupiter). Great day as it didn't rain until we were off the mountain.

We should have turned around! After tagging the summit and signing the register, we proceeded to race down the mountain in an effort to outrun a San Juan monsoon thunderstorm. It caught us. Two different times I heard the ice axes humming, twice we had to try and shelter under overhanging rocks to get some protection from the marble-sized hail and to avoid and any lightning bolts. We were glad that we had left our climbing helmets on as they protected our heads. That hail hurt! I crouched with a rock across my knees to deflect some of the hail. Finally, pummeled, soaked, and cold, I ran up a little ways to retrieve our packs, poles, and axes and we were soon quickly on our way down to the relative safety of Chicago Basin.

What an amazing climb! This was the most fun (and probably toughest of this class) class 2 scramble I've done! The views at the top were amazing as usual:-) The only major bummer is that as we were headed back over to Sunlight (10am), RAIN, sleet, and thunder rolled in... so of course we were unable to bag Sunlight:-( This whole trip was full of rain! No need to worry about snow anymore.... though we did do a great glassade down Windom (didn't need our ice axes)!

Lots and lots of snow. Glad I brought my Yaxtrax, but wish I would have had gators along. Summited about 9:30am then bailed off the main trail for an extended glissade to the snowfield between Windom and Sunlight. Be sure to bring your axe! Went on to climb Sunlight.



Climb On!

climbed with Aaron, easiest of the three fourteeners in this area. The enormous summit blocks are quite impressive.

Being as far into the backcountry as Windom is and running into as many people as I did is precisely the reason I call MT home now. Nonetheless, the Chicago basin is a spectacular area. I can't wait to head into the Needles/Grenadiers someday for an extended trip.
