January CO climbs

by mtneering » Sat Dec 14, 2013 5:57 pm

Heading to Colorado for some ice and mountaineering. We will be there 6 days last few in Ouray, so between there and Denver as we make our way slowly to Ouray what's good? Specifically WI2/3 multipitch is preferred. Peaks any size alpine climbing very fit so long days OK but we are not taking the cold overnight gear just the cold 18 hour day gear! Currently climbing in Sierra so our skill set is developed and combined mountaineering years well over 25!

Thanks for all the suggestions and your time in advanced!

If you don't mind a slight detour, Lincoln Fall on Mt. Lincoln (near Hoosier Pass) has some stuff in the range you're looking for. It's a bit south of Breckenridge on US 9.

I've climbed a bunch of San Juan peaks in the spring/summer/fall and would like to try for some winter ascents this month. I'll be in Ouray until the 25th if you want to join forces.


Return to Colorado
