Rachael and I camped near No Fish Lake after backpacking in from Santa Barbara CG, climbed the east ridge of Truchas, then traversed the remaining Truchas Peaks and Chimayosos before heading back to camp. The ridge from Medio to North had some good scrambling, maybe a little 4th class for a couple of moves but mostly reasonable 3rd with pretty straight forward route finding.
After bypassing the summit on my way to Middle Truchas Peak from (South) Truchas, I walked the ridge back to the summit of Medio. There are some awesome viewpoints along that ridge.
Brutal posthole in from the land grant via Rio Quemado. Followed some bighorns up the ridge, then continued on to Middle and South Truchas, and back the same way. Trip report.
Traversed from Middle Truchas Peak after climbing its NW Ridge from Rio Quemado TH. Fifth summit since year 2000. Continued onto South Truchas Peaks. Returned via NE Ridge of "Medio" Truchas. Beautiful weather, nice hike, -- great day in Pecos!
Second time up, first was in May 2006. I had forgotten how cool the rocks are on this peak, amazing shiny outcrop of mica schist and white quartz.
