Parked a couple miles below Black Pass Pass. Summited and back down in 3 hours-15 minutes.
Ascended the NW summit from Black Bear Pass after climbing Trico. Traversed along the north ridge to Ingram and then scrambled back down to Black Bear Road to complete a beautiful look through the Ingram Basin.
Turned around just below the summit due to thunder and lighting. Was lucky and just made it back to the car before it rained.
Drove part way up towards Porphyry basin (about 1.5 miles from the turn off from Hwy 550) and then hike up via east ridge, got hailed on on the way down. Duchess did great.
Combined with UN13510 & Trico using the Black Bear road from Red Mtn Pass.
Climbed the ridge from Black Bear Pass, combined with Three Needles
From top of Bridal Veil Falls. Loop over Telluride Peak, UN 13510, Trico Peak, "T10" & Three Needles.
Did a loop that day, climbing Trico Peak, traversing to the south summit of T10, and then descending to Porphyry basin. Sun all day and great glissading!
Very nice climb with Mark and Aaron. Great views of the San Juans from the top. We were there right after a snow storm and the mountains were gorgeous!
Wanted to do 13477 from Black Bear Pass on a later day. On this day, I was heading for Three Needles (which I had not read or heard anything about). That looked too difficult so I did 13477.
