Wow. I really, really loved this peak. We had amazing views thanks to exceptionally crisp, clean air this day. We could see from Greenhorn Mountain in the south all the way to Longs & Meeker in the north...and everything in between. I loved the summit pleateau area and the scrambling to reach the top of the peak. Just an amazing little mountain!

shknbkeCO Trail/north ridge bushwack  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 4, 2008


I had heard that Windy is a brutal snowshoe, so I decided to hit it in the fall when the aspens were still colorful. The bushwack from the CO Trail is fairly mellow, although it gets pretty steep near the top. We ended up veering to the east a bit too much, which ended up giving us some solid scrambling opportunities. A great place to explore!

This was a fine peak with great views, but I would recommend doing it later in the year to avoid the snow.

This mountain is a very worthwhile challenge. Especialy with deep snow. I feel that this large mountain would worth getting to know better (i.e. by it west ridge route). It is fun but it worked me over. Dogs Sopris and Raymond along on this lonely sojourn. Jon Bradford

KaneNorth and west ridges  Sucess!


I have climbed Windy Peak on 3 different occasions. Twice in the winter via the north ridge and once in July viw the west ridge. Windy Peak has the honor of having the most imaculate summit register I have ever seen. Complete with a large medal lock box and a hardcover binded with ribbon. It looked like a diary or something. Windy Peak is very isolated from the rest of the LCW. Only Buffalo Mountain and the Castle give this mountain some company. You do get the feeling that your on a different planet when walking across the lonely summit plateau. About 20-25 people a year summit this peak.
