Got Wilson Peak and Mount Wilson with Chris Gerber and Tressa Breindel. Was also planning on El Diente, but got stormed out.
Also later in July as part of Wilson-El Diente Ridge.
Started up from base camp at 8:15AM reaching summit at 12:15PM on the standard route. Stayed briefly; back to camp at 2:35PM then packed-out the 5+ miles to the TH. My 54th 14er on this splendid day..........Sweet!
Traversed from El Diente. A day trip starting from Kilpacker TH and returning via Navajo Basin and Kilpacker Trail. Good weather, nice scrambling on the summit ridge.
Great day out
Great backpacking and climb!
I hiked up Mount Wilson, then traversed over to El Diente. Part of a really great backpacking trip with my Dad.
The snow didn't hurt the traverse, and immensely helped the descent -- plunge steps FTW. I didn't get sidetracked much, and it still took me about 1h30. 1 hour would really be cruising.
Did the traverse from El Diente in perfect weather. Hard work, but very rewarding.
Went up the class 4 crux and down one of the gully's.
After a foggy traverse, ended up climbing Mount Wilson from behind up loose class 4 ledges. Descended correct summit blocks, then went too far west and down north face. Paid for route-finding error with a slide and some cuts, but fortunately that's it. Eventually got back on track before thunderstorms hit.
Went up Standard route from Navajo Lake Basin. Came down Kilpacker Basin. Car to Car in 13 hours.
Backpacked into Navajo Lake and then climbed Mount Wilson and Wilson Peak the next day. Socked in for about an hour until the clouds lifted and the weather held steady. A great mountain.
We were going to do the traverse from El Diente, got to El Diente, traversed to the Organ Pipe's, Snow was rotting out and post holing to rock, glissaded down, to Basin saw an up track going half way up, broke the rest and truely climbed them both on the same day! Rotting out snow on final pitch very nasty. 10 hours total from the lake.
Traversed over from Diente and glissaded down Mt Wilson's N face. The last move to reach the summit (the crux) was pretty sweet and airy!
Wow. What a surprising finish. I had glossed over a number of details when reading the route description which I left at the TH. Very enjoyable!
Via El Diente East ridge (Wilson's West ridge).
We managed to avoid the horrible weather in the Denver area and escape to the San Juans for a little mountain climbing! We backpacked into Navajo Lake and then climbed Mount Wilson and Wilson Peak the next day. The climb of Mount Wilson was great - enjoyed the final ridge immensely.
Eighth of 14 14ers in 11 days via the traverse from El Diente. What an amazing route! The best descent route was a bit unclear, but we managed to make it out unscathed. My favorite day of the trip.
