South Ridge from Cuba Gulch TH  Sucess!

A pretty quick hike from Cuba Gulch TH. Great views of Half Peak the entire way and lots of solitude.

Route Climbed: from American Basin around west end of ridge & along it to summit Date Climbed: 13 July 2003  Sucess!

American Basin is a beautiful place to visit or camp. From there I hiked to the west end of the ridge and followed the herd path east just south of the crest of the ridge to the summit. If it weren't for the path beaten by other climbers this part of the hike would be much more tedious.

Route Climbed: South Ridge to West Ridge then on to Jones Mountain Date Climbed: September 1, 2002  Sucess!

"American Peak" was an enjoyable summit. Despite seeing hordes on Handies Peak I had "American" to myself. The complete traverse of the summit ridge was a lot of fun and I highly recomend it. Along with me on this ride were dogs Sopris and Raymond.
