Route Climbed: Standard Date Climbed: September 1997  Sucess!

Recall that the sky was that beautiful azure blue and the tundra had all kinds of colors. Beware this trailhead requires about 1.5 hours of a rocky 4x4 road to get there!

Summited this peak after a weekend of volunteer work for the Colorado 14er Initiative... summited last afternoon, around 5pm on a perfectly beautiful, still, clear blue day w/my girlfriend....... very nice memory

Route Climbed: West Ridge II Date Climbed: July 2001  Sucess!

Climbed from N. Colony Creeks up boulder/shale field. N. Colony is beautiful with waterfalls and very few people. Hike to higher lakes is horrible if you try to bushwack and we finally put on our sandals and hiked up the creek. To get to West Ridge was not so fun either but we managed and summited around 10am. Great view of the Crestones and Carson/Challenger. If you like backpacking and want remote do the N. Colony Creeks. If it is just a day trip or you want to bag all the mountains in the area go up S. Colony. I also attempted Humboldt in April from S. Colony and got caught in a blizzard at 12,000 feet, luckily had our tent and gear to hold out the storm in.

Easy summit, but the walk up the long 4WD road was not fun.
