fall solitude  Sucess!

I saw this peak while working on the Uncompahgre Plateau and wanted to climb it for it's awesome prominence. Bit of a challenge finding the TH, and the road was too rough to get my compact all the way. Scenic trail up Bell Canyon with fall color, but quite a few trees across the trail. Fall color was great all along the trail and views from the ridge and summit spectacular. Would be great 2 day with camping at campsite below the summit pitch. Long but rewarding day more fun than a lot of higher mountains.

Great fall colors  Sucess!

Via Bell Canyon, 2 hours 20 minutes to top, perfect time of year for this hike the fall colors were near peak they are very spectacular on this route especially the north side of Landsend Peak. The road to the trailhead was much worse than the hike, High clearance needed for the last 3 miles, I wouldn't try it in a Subie, the last mile (there is a sign that says 1 mile) is very rough and will scratch paint and make you very uncomfortable unless you are very skilled 4WD driver. I drove it but thought better of it later.

Inter-Ocean Pass Trail  Sucess!

This is a much easier route to the top than Bell Canyon as long as you are comfortable with your navigation skills. The approach on the dirt roads are very slick when wet. I found this out when my Subaru tires became caked with this mud and lost their traction. I slid off the road and banged up my rims. I decided to return the next day for the climb.

via Bell Canyon  Sucess!

Combined Lamborn with Landsend via Bell Canyon which made for a long day. Renata Collard finished the CO counties on Lamborn. The traverse to Landsend is not recommended unless you're doing 10ers or all the peaks in Delta county! Brutal bushwach.

Almost

Beautiful hike in via Inter-Ocean Pass trail from the south. We were stopped just short of the summit cone by lingering snow and our late start.

Bell Canyon  Sucess!

ROute description from Bell Canyon is very good. Take plenty of water and wear long pants. Otherwise very nice.

Date Climbed: 1975 or 1976  Sucess!

As a Paonia native, Mount Lamborn will always be my favorite mountain. It totally dominates the view from the valley, which is 5,700 feet below. A few of us climbed Lamborn and Landsend one day on a high school field trip. I remember the school bus took us up on the mesa and dropped us off.
