Halo Ridge  Sucess!

Halo ridge was so beautifil. Great way to combine with Holy Cross. Those lakes below have to be some of Colorado's biggest natural alpine lakes

Standard route (more or less)  Sucess!

Kinda trail run, kinda hike, kinda tough.
Suboptimal conditions for trail runners, but still a great day.
Did a loop of the upper route.

Halo  Sucess!

Halo Descent of Holy Cross with summits of Holy Cross Ridge and PT 13248. Third trip around the Halo. Patchy snow on the ridge, lots of larger patches below Notch, but you can use them to cut some mileage. Wet with some snow patches in the trees.

Part of the   Sucess!

I tagged Holy Cross Ridge plus the other 13er summits on my may to Holy Cross starting on the Halo Ridge side. I eventually completed the Tour de Holy Cross descending the Halfmoon Pass trail before the storms hit the area. Awesome views all around!

13831  Sucess!

From the summit of Holy Cross via standard route, continued on to Holy Cross Ridge (13831) summit. Planned to descend via the full loop, but decided to head back the same way due to ankle issues. (Which ended up being longer and more elevation, but easier trail.)

From Fancy Creek TH  Sucess!

Due to Tigiwon Rd closure, I went for Holy Cross from the south. The road just past Fancy Creek was washed out. Packed into Hunky Dory Lake (heard that sites near Tuhare Lakes were soggy - they were). Reached east ridge of Pt 13,768, went over to Mt of HC, then back to HC Ridge. Came down to Tuhare Lakes - which was a big mistake! Spent a lot of time looking for a passable way down. Beautiful area! But lots of snow begets lots of rushing water.

Halo Ridge from Holy Cross  Sucess!

Traversed Halo Ridge after climbing Mount of the Holy Cross. Nice hike, beautiful weather, gorgeous views.

Halo Ridge solo  Sucess!

Started at 3:30am and made it to Notch Mountain right after sunrise. The ridge was long as advertised but I didn't see a soul until the summit of Holy Cross. The north ridge seemed long but it may just be that I didn't go up that way so it was unfamiliar. Climbing back over Halfmoon Pass wasn't as tough as I had feared. Great route for a blue bird sky kind of day!

Beautiful Ridge  Sucess!

We decided on doing this route instead of going back up to Half Moon Pass. We had amazing weather all day long with amazing amazing views all over. The talus on the traverse kinda sucks after awhile, but it was doable. It was a very very long day, but well worth.
