Beautiful afternoon hike. I started at 2pm and had the summit all to myself with gorgeous clouds, lighting and conditions.
Standard route from Amer. Basin
Hiked up with Sean and Johnny.
Approached from Grouse Gulch. Got a summit ski descent all the way back to the truck.
After making it to the creek crossing near the TH with some careful driving in my compact, I hiked up the easy trail to the summit. A cold storm was approaching from the south and I got snowed on about halfway down. Saw ptarmigan along the trail.
7/3/05 - East Ridge from Grizzly Gulch
11/3/07 - From Boulder Gulch. Climbed with two neighboring 13ers to the east (13,795 and "Campbell Creek Peak").
12/29/11 - Winter ascent of south ridge via Boulder Gulch from Cataract Gulch TH (winter closure).
1/24/15 - Winter ascent up Boulder Gulch again, this time via east ridge in slightly drier conditions. Traversed to UN 13,795 afterwards.
Follow up after an Uncompahgre repeat. An easily obtained summit in good conditions with spectacular views of the grenadiers to the south.
Perfect morning outing up Grizzly side. Wildflowers going off! With Eric n Lily.
with philmont kids in 2002, we went straight up from the parking lot, probably class 2...san juans, the most beautiful CO range. would like to tag it again on the hardrock 100 soon...
Climbed with my Father
One of my favorites.
Fun hike. Two guys enjoying Coors Original at the summit helped us point out other familiar 14ers. Didn't stay too long, as thunderstorms loomed.
This was a nice easy hike from American Basin. Surprised at all the snow in September.
Just a great all around hike/climb. Views were exceptional.
Awesome father's day jaunt with the old man.
with wild flowers everywhere
Done along with 5 other 14ers during a week long backpacking trip in the San Juans. Did the standard route. Beautiful hike!
I've done it from American Basin, too. Fun quick hike.
