S Winfield TH Ascend NW Slopes  Sucess!

This hike is short enough to take your time and enjoy the high mountain tundra. The perfect weather made Huron my favorite 14er so far.

S Winfield TH Ascend NW Slopes  Sucess!

Beautiful hike on a great trail with more switchbacks than I'd ever seen before. The high alpine meadow on the route is one of the nicest places I've encountered on any hike.

Hike with a Texas bud  Sucess!

Pure solitude and fresh snow with a friend from Texas. Absolutely stunning views of the Three Apostles and got to see my first stoat!

Nice Fall Day  Sucess!

Although it was still technically summer for a couple more days, the weather was mild and enough trees were changing that it felt more like fall. Great day and an easy trail. We had sun all day.

S Face  Sucess!

We missed the turn-off to the standard trail, so we ended up here. A different approach to a great summit.

This route is a nightmare. From thorn-bushwacking to boulder hoping to crossing streams. I would not reccommend this to anybody.

Route Climbed: Northwest Slopes II, Class 2 Date Climbed: June 30, 2005  Sucess!

My wife and I climbed Huron Peak during our annual 4th of July climb, raft and skydive weekend we do out of Denver each year. It was cold and windy towards the top but clear skies! This was the first time in my CO climbing where we were practically the only people on the mountain and the summit. I guess Thursdays are much better than the weekend!

Route Climbed: Standard, from North Ridge Date Climbed: Summer 2002  Sucess!

Bushwacked from the closed road from Winfield, found the trail up high. Did this solo with Osita, my dog.

Route Climbed: SW Slopes Date Climbed: September 10, 2005  Sucess!

This route was tougher than the standard route. After the cabin at 11500' or so, the trail veered left and then ended up in a boulder field. From there, it was hiking across boulders toward the west, gradually angling upward, all the time with great views of the Apostles, but slow going. I skinned my knee on a loose boulder. Once I got to the saddle at about 13100', the climb became easier. The rock along the ridge to the top was more solid, with a little bit of exposure but not too bad. All in all, a decent alternative to the crowded standard route.

Route Climbed: standard route (trail) Date Climbed: September 18, 2005  Sucess!

Wow, that 4wd road between Winfield and the signed trailhead is an adventure! What a blast. Anyway, the trail proper starts out gentle for a half mile and then must average a 25 degree incline or so after that. The trail is a marvel of sound trail construction. By far the best steep trail I have ever had the pleasure to climb. It will remain in great shape for decades if not longer, except for the very top, which has some stretches of very shallow and slippery scree. The views are quite impressive for a Sawatch 14er and the hike is divided into 3 or 4 unique and distinct sections that keep it interesting.
