NE Ridge  Sucess!

Fun scramble near the end. Got rained on for the last mile on the way out.

Climbed again 7/13/17. For the second straight time I had no views from the summit due to clouds! Still a fun hike.

Early Snow  Sucess!

Early snow this year made for an interesting climb. Lots of postholing on the ridge. Great weather!

took right at the Crux  Sucess!

By pure chance, I started a solo hike on the pass trail not even knowing about Engineer Mountain. When I arrived at the bottom, I literally felt drawn to this mountain. The weather was fine with just a few clouds. There was some wet snow sticking to the shaded areas. Took left at the Crux as advised by Connor, a young man who was climbing fast off-trail left of the ridge. Felt quite dizzy and totally euphoric at the summit. On the way down I climbed down (about 10 feet) the northern section of the Crux. The 3-foot wide ledge on which then I stood was barely a reassurance from the vertiginous cliff that lay beneath my feet.

essayons  Sucess!

As a former army engineer I'd been wanting to climb this peak. With good weather was able to also make it up Jura Knob.

Lovely scramble

Really nice summit with super nice scramble, great views, with my brother, son, and Duchess (although not a dog friendly mountain higher up). Rained on us on the way down.
2nd time up - mid April for Easter (even brought Easter egg with me). Lovely snow climb, skinned up, the descent on skis between the trees was hard (snow melted at spots, easy to get into cliffs etc).

Engineer Redemption  Sucess!

After spending the previous day attempting to summit Sneffels in an early morning deluge, it was nice to be able to attain this summit. A crux of crumbly holds wasn't quite what I expected, but was grateful to savor one of the best views in the San Juans.

A fun mountain  Sucess!

When I saw this mountain, I literally pulled off the road and climbed it. I didn't think there was a trail, but soon stumbled across it. I then thought there certainly couldn't be a good route to the top, but was surprised when I saw several people on the ridge above. I ventured a bit onto the face to get away from the conga line and also to spice it up. It was a LOT of fun, and great scenery too.

Beautiful Summit  Sucess!

We had some time to spare so we did this real quick on the way to Ouray. Gorgeous hike with awesome views all over. I was pleasently surprised with the class 3 sections on the route. We ended up taking the class 4 chimney because we didn't get out of the corridor soon enough. Awesome views! We had the summit to ourselves!

Always Enjoyable...  Sucess!

I've been up Engineer several times since 2007...it is always a short, fast hike in the summer...looking forward to a winter scent!

NE Ridge  Sucess!

What a cool climb. I little bit of everything. Short but all the things you would want in a full day. Loved it!

Northeast Ridge  Sucess!

Holy MOSES, is there anthing NOT to like about this mountain? As soon as we left our vehicle we were surrounded by 6-ft tall wildflowers. The meadow below the peak was exploding in color. The ridge was indeed quite loose in the San Juan tradition, but it was an exhilarating ride. We had a high pressure system over us and no threat of afternoon storms - barely a cloud in the sky. Heaven on earth.

Great fun!  Sucess!

Summited after visiting friends in Durango. Never been to the San Juans before--simply grand! Talk about colorful Colorado. It started to hail around 10 am, but we were only a few hundred yards from the trailhead.
