Niwot Ridge to Navajo  Sucess!

The Niwot Ridge is not the easiest route to find beta on, but it is awesome. Several tricky spots that do not exceed Class 4, and some challenging route finding, but solid rock, grippy holds abound, and stellar views. Hit Navajo via the chimney. Descended Airplane Gully. Kudos to Brian Kalet for his detailed trip report and photos.

Navajo Peak from Pawnee Pass  Sucess!

I climbed Navajo Peak back in the days before the popularity of the Indian Peaks exploded. There used to be a lot of visitors from Missouri. In 1984, it was possible to find a camping site without too much trouble. Fast forward to 2017 and areas like this need to be carefully managed to keep the masses from damaging the fragile ecosystem.

Climbed Apache Couloir and traversed from Apache. Ice in the chimney. Descended via Airplane Gully.

Queens Way to Navajo  Sucess!

Ascended Queens Way on Apache with Scot, Colin, Kevin, Sarah, Shawn, Bob and Kate. Then traversed over to Navajo, up its west chimney and then down the airplane gully. Airplane gully was pretty loose in spots and we had a close call, be careful!

North face  Sucess!

Up Queens Way to Apache, over to Dickers Peck (ran into some people I know who loaned me a harness and belayed me up. Then, up the North Face of Navajo, over to Niwot Ridge, and down Airplane Gully.

Navajo Peak  Sucess!

Amazing view. Even though I left early I still managed to get rained on. I saw a ton of Pika on the way up

Airplane Gully  Sucess!

Climbed via the Airplane Gully with Marco and his friend Jeff. We started around 5AM, and it was still dark. We did have the nearly full moon. We were concerned about clouds rolling in before we reached the gully, but it turned out to be nothing to worry about. It was, however, pretty windy and chilly. There were only a handful of hikers going for Navajo, but there were the usual crowds of dayhikers near Long Lake.

Awesome  Sucess!

This is a great peak, the airplane wreckage makes it a lot more interesting.

Long time ago  Sucess!

Date is a guess, from the few years I lived in Colorado.

I do remember inspecting the place wreck debris.

Beautiful area  Sucess!

Via Niwot Ridge. Perfect day. No wind, no clouds, no heat...perfect! Climbed with Brenta. Descended by airplane gully.

Via Airplace Gully  Sucess!

I've been eyeing this peak for years and finally got around to climbing it. Well worth the trip.

Navajo snowfield and northface  Sucess!

The snowfield was plenty steep, but the ice was minimal. Climbed via the North Face. Opted for the crack up the pink granite just below the top...and the squeeze under the dark band of rock (bomber hand-holds on grippy flakes, crappy, down-sloping footholds) reminded me just how lousy of a rock climber I am in my Scarpa full-shank mountaineering boots vs. my rock shoes! Pathetic! Had to talk my way up and over that section. :) Lunch at the summit, then descent via Airplane Gully which I think is the spawn of pure evil. The scenery is great and the wreckage makes for high drama, but the loose rocks on a steep, gravel slopes just frankly sucks.

Niwot Ridge ascent, Airplane Gully descent

What a cool summit! Loved every minute minus the scree-fest on Niwot. Looking forward to returning for the Navajo Snowfield and technical route.

With Apache and Niwot Ridge  Sucess!

Up airplane gulley, quick side trip to Niwot Ridge and then a traverse over to Apache. Darn fun mountain.

North face, sorta  Sucess!

Took an alternate route up the north face that was about 5.2-5.3. Awesome climbing on solid rock! Would like to go back and get Dicker's Peck. With Kiefer.

Tour!  Sucess!

Climbed up airplane gully. Topped out by interesting chimney (4th class?) in stead of standard route. Descended west chimney. Good route but I think harder climbing down than up. Up Apache and down the East Ledges. Was going to attempt Dickers but was waaaaaay too cold/windy. Fun day!
