Burns Gulch Approach  Sucess!

Pretty straight forward climb. Followed 4X4 road to saddle between niagara and jones. The rest followed a well worn footpath. One note, I witnessed two white dog-like animals on the opposing valley wall while making the approach, not sure what they were as I've never seen white coyotes, my first instinct was mountain goats but a closer look definitely eliminated that guess.

Climbed NE Ridge  Sucess!

I went up the northern fork of Burns Gulch to American Peak. There was significant snow in Burns Gulch. After Jones/American saddle not much snow on American. I crossed Snare Gulch from American and climbed up NE ridge route of Jones. Returned to vehicle via Jones West ridge into Burns Gulch.

Route Climbed: South Ridge (after climbing Niagara Peak 1st)  Sucess!

A nice walk-up...the views are extroardinary and compensate for the lack of climbing challenges...a nice centralized perch in the San Juans of Colorado!

With American & Niagara from American Basin  Sucess!

Climbed American, Jones & Niagara solo from American Basin while my friend climbed Handies. Jones was a special peak for me - my 100th Colorado 13er! I recommend using Burns Gulch to collect these 3 peaks unless you've got some other reason to be in American Basin like I did. The climb from the basin up to American is a nasty scree nighmare when dry, but its doable.

American Pie  Sucess!

Traversed over from American on the way to Niagara, basically followed Gerry Roach's "American Pie" route from his 13ers book.

Surprisingly not much snow on the south sides of these peaks, almost no need for gaitors even!

East Ridge from American Peak  Sucess!

What a great peak. Easy but enjoyable traverse from American. Great wildflowers, incredible views and I really loved the basin below Jones and Niagara.
