Route Climbed: north slopes, return to Silver Pick Date Climbed: August 1995  Sucess!

Climbed the steep, snow-filled gullies and ribs up and down the north slope, following a partial descent from Mount Wilson to about 13,000'. This was a miserable route, and my most difficult climb in the Colorado Rockies to date. Made for an extremely long day, with the latter part being done in a cold rain.

Route Climbed: North Slopes Date Climbed: 15 Aug 2004  Sucess!

Camped below the route on Sat...started up at 5:00a.m. and caught a beautiful sunrise half way up. We followed the couloir most of the way by climbing the rock on either side and then took a direct path up to the summit. Continued on the ridge traverse to Wilson after that.

Route Climbed: Kilpacker Basin Date Climbed: June 20, 2004  Sucess!

Wow...what a beautiful campsite at Kilpacker. The end of the climb can be difficult as the route can disappear on you when there is snow coverage...pretty awesome though!

Route Climbed: North Face Date Climbed: August 2003  Sucess!

A late summer freeze cemented the scree on the north face solid, so we had no problems with the infamous rockfall. Still, wear a helmet. Traversed to Mount Wilson. Another group on the mountain had a miserable + dangerous descent of this route - be careful.

Traversed from Mt. Wilson, then climbed Wilson Pk. The climb down was slow on rotton loose rock when I wasn't glissading.

Route Climbed: Kilpacker Basin Trailhead Date Climbed: July 5, 2003  Sucess!

Kilpacker Basin was wonderful but my favorite part of this hike was the last mile. The rock scrambling and class 3 stuff were great although quite loose. This was by far the toughest mountain I have climbed (not that I have climbed that many). It is a mountain that demands all of your attention. I had the priviledge of climbing this mountain with Aaron Johnson, my sweetheart and favorite climbing partner. We had a great day weather wise which assisted our efforts.
