Airplane Gully??  Sucess!

We thought we were climbing Airplane Gully, but we took the gully to the right, which turned out the wrong gully. I enjoyed the more difficult climbing, but I don't think those in my party did. Ended up doing some easy 5th class face climbing.

Favorite mountain in Colorado  Sucess!

Took Airplane Gully route. Attempted via Niwot Ridge but an incoming storm scared me from making it past the summit of the ridge.

Northish Face?  Sucess!

An absolutly wonderful climb. We climbed the north face and finished with another 5.3-ish chimney to the summit. A super great day!

West Chimney  Sucess!

Climbed Queens Way over Apache and up West Chimney. Descended Airplane Gully which sucks. Otherwise a nice short outing.

Over Niwot Ridge  Sucess!

Soloed over Niwot Ridge to Navajo and down the gully. The weather was perfect. The route finding on Niwot Ridge was a blast and the views spectacular.

Navajo  Sucess!

I climbed this via the Airplane gully, which was ok. There are about 4 other routes on this mountain that I want to try! Awsome views!

Navajo snowfield/west chimney  Sucess!

Climbed up the snowfield/west chimney to reach the summit with the intent to continue over to Apache. However, approaching storm clouds changed my mind and thus descended the Airplane gully for a fun round trip of Navajo.

via west chimney/Navajo snowfield  Sucess!

A fine day via Navajo snowfield, traverse to Apache, up west chimney. Added Niwot Ridge for a nice loop. See TR.

Via Airplane Gully  Sucess!

Fun climb. Summit was shrouded in clouds though which was kind of a bummer. Will have to go back and maybe do the snowfield or something.

West Chimney  Sucess!

My first "big" Colorado Peak. Bivvied at the foot of the glacier. A great climb.

4x: West Chimney (3x), Navajo Snowfield & North Face  Sucess!

8/28/05 - Traversed ridge from Apache. Navajo's West Chimney rocks! Such a fun, classic chimney with wild exposure below. Descended Airplane Gully - loose talus isn't so great but the airplane wreckage is definately worth seeing.

8/2/08 - 2nd trip, this time via Navajo Snowfield (which was still in good snow climbing shape, not icy) and the North Face. Also climbed Dickers Peck and Niwot Ridge before heading down Airplane Gully.

6/21/10 - Traversed from Apache and climbed up the delightful West Chimney (with a bit of snow and ice). Above the namesake 4th class chimney we climbed a fun low 5th class chimney system that I'd explored on the previous trip. Great scramble, always is, always will be.

6/21/17 - Traversed from Navajo, climbed West Chimney (which I still love), and descended via gully west of Airplane Gully by mistake. There was a little cliff/waterfall in the middle that I had to bypass with class 4+ scrambling on the west side. Such a good peak!

North Ridge  Sucess!

Climbed via the North Ridge.

Via Niwot Ridge  Sucess!

Traversed Niwot Ridge to Niwot Peak, then to Navajo. Started down the gully, but didn't have our snow/ice gear so had to climb back up and across the ridge. A great day!

west chimney  Sucess!

memorable west chimney climb with jamie nellis. frequent patches of snow and ice forced us to constantly evaluate what was/wasn't acceptable to have a safe climb. very enjoyable!

Nice view  Sucess!

This is a nice summit to achieve in the center of the Indian Peaks.

West Chimney  Sucess!

Reversed route down chimney & snowfield for descent. Had to downclimb the Navajo snowfield quickly due to approaching storms. Would like to go back and climb the N. Face sometime,

Route Climbed: Airplane Gully Date Climbed: May 1971  Sucess!

I've summited twice since my first visit, once from Apache via the connecting ridge and up the West Chimney.

Route Climbed: North Ridge Date Climbed: July '03  Sucess!

Pretty simple climb. 4th class. Need to cross an easy snow field. I didn't take crampons and just chopped steps. The actual summit is only 4th class. Fun solo climb. Descent route sucks.
