West Face Route  Sucess!

Camped along road 502, then in the morning parked at the pond rehab site. Hiked up road 502 to the 4WD road 502.1A. Beautiful day. 12.8 miles, about 4000' elevation gain. My gpx tracks are public on gaiagps.

Nice and long ridge walk  Sucess!

Did a nice loop starting with Phoenix (via falls route, from NW), then walked over La Garunta to La Garita. Tons of elk below La Garita….I think the biggest herd I ever seen >100.

From Phoenix Peak  Sucess!

CMC Trip. There were 5 in our group. We had planned to do both Phoenix & La Garita. We climbed Phoenix first, and saw that there was some weather off to the west. We decided not to do La Garita. We changed our minds when we got down from Phoenix and saw the weather was not so bad. We split with two others in our group and climbed back to the ridge, went over Point ~12,760 and on to La Garita. We didn't stay long, there were a few episodes of light graupel and rain, and then we headed back down and rejoined the other two in our group. A good, long day.
