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.

After descending Sunlight's South Face I walked across the basin and up to Windom's West Ridge. There was quite a bit of snow but it didn't impede progress much. The summit wasn't particularly spectacular and after doing Sunlight's West Ridge the route wasn't very exciting, but still a good time thanks to the great weather! Last San Juan 14er that I hadn't climbed as well!

After very technical climbing on Sunlight it was a nice break to summit Windom. Forth peak of the day and a great fealing to reach the summit. I slept very soundly in upper Chicago Basin after this day was over.

A 9:30am thunderstorm chased me from the summit. Rode out a hail storm at 14k and returned to the mountain goats at base camp in Chicago Basin. These fellas would not leave me alone!

Did not like this one as it is mostly boulder hopping. Steep scree field on the way down but you get down quick. Did this in combination with Sunlight which seemed easy after this one.

thepluggerRoute Climbed: Standard route from Chicago Basin Date Climbed: 8-19-94  Sucess!


After taking the Durango-Silverton train to Needleton and backpacking up into Chicago Basin, my husband, Jay, and I did both Sunlight and Windom on this day. As is the rule more than the exception, a storm built up by afternoon, just as we were summiting Windom. We took a chance and made it, then ran down to our campsite in the blinding rain.
