Route Climbed: Northwest Slopes Date Climbed: 19 Jun 2005  Sucess!

Started from the 4WD closure - took only 1hr 40min to make the summit. Mostly snow free above treeline, although there is a long crossing of a snowfield that softens up quite a bit during the day. Got to do a nice glissade down one of the upper snowfields though -that was a lot of fun! The Apostles looked stunning (and very snow - covered!)

Route Climbed: North Ridge Browns-Huron Traverse...sort of Date Climbed: June 12, 2005  Sucess!

In near white out conditions, we somehow (and don't ask me how) ended up making a big arc around the other side of Brown's (ON a ridge, explain that one) and ended up summitting another 13er. The other 13er was similar in height as Brown's so, we shrugged, called it good, and headed over to Huron. Then in the still near white-out conditions, with a few high winds thrown in, we summitted Huron. Views were nonexistent, but it was still pretty awesome. Snowed most of the way down, saw an elk and a few other forest creatures. All in all a great day,...confusing, but a great day!

Route Climbed: North Ridge: Browns-Huron Traverse Date Climbed: May 29, 2005  Sucess!

Oops! Be sure you know your directions when looking at pictures of mountains so as to summit the right one first...

While taking a "breather" just above the saddle between Huron & Browns (next to Huron), I noticed Roache's picture of Huron... and then thought I was next to Brown's.... I didn't really care to "bag" Brown's, so I headed over to what I thought was Huron.... Yeah, I bagged Brown's, then headed BACK over to bag Huron (Huron's summit can not be seen until you reach the top). Oh well! 2 summit's in a day, not half bad.

Great climb. Fast pace, started in late afternoon. One of the closest lightening situations I've been in. Kind of thought the thunderstorms weren't gonna come that day, since I had blue sky at 3:30pm when I started! Beautiful country.

Route Climbed: Rockdale Trailhead Date Climbed: 06/2004  Sucess!

The view from this summit is one of the most spectacular from a Colorado 14er, you can see much of the Sawatch Range as well as the far away Elk Range

Route Climbed: from South fork of Lake Creek 4x4 trailhead via Direct West Face Date Climbed: June, 2002  Sucess!

Took a friend up on his first 14er. A nice, short, steep one, if I recall correctly (I hope I recall correctly, as it's all I recall about this one).

My favorite 14er. This route had a beautiful view the entire way.

Route Climbed: Northwest Slopes Date Climbed: September 10, 1983  Sucess!

In the days before a true west slope trail, we followed the old jeep trail from Winfield up to the gully on the NW ridge of Browns Peak. We then climbed this gully to where the two ridges merge and then to Brown's summit. We followed the ridge south to Huron's summit. On the descent, we climbed back over Browns Peak, but then continued to the saddle just north of it. We then turned left, descending on tundra into Lulu Gulch, and then to another jeep trail to the cars at Winfield.

Route Climbed: Northwest Slopes Date Climbed: August 22, 2000  Sucess!

Started from the South Winfield 4WD trailhead, and did this route in under 5 hours. The CFI trail was very easy - you could have hiked this one with your hands in your pockets the whole way. We did encounter a few massive cairns along the way which seemed like overkill.

My 13th Fourteener. Great tree color etc. in the valleys, but caught in a total whiteout on the summit with no view whatsoever. Two hours later, the sky cleared, but I was already back down at the South Winfield Trailhead. Who says it pays to start early??? :-)

Route Climbed: Lulu Gulch/North Ridge Date Climbed: July 2004  Sucess!

This was definitely a climb that me and my friends winged. We set out for a nice hike in the mountains near Winfield and wound up on top of Browns Peak, looked at a map, and realized that Huron Peak was right there. So we went over and climbed it, too. Great weather and a hell of a fun day!

Second attempt, first summit. Still we had thunderstorms and a long downpour on our descent, late in the day. Probably the wettest I've been.

HIked with my dad under cool, cloudy conditions. The summit was completely socked in when we were there, depriving us of the view of the Three Apostles.

Route Climbed: Route from Winfield Trailhead Date Climbed: August 8, 2004  Sucess!

What a wonderful mountain. Excellent trail work by CFI or whoever worked on it. After having done a long hike the day before, Huron was a joy to climb. We had fantastic weather - I dare say one of the nicest days we have had all climbing season.
