With Matt C  Sucess!

From the hairpin we did Champion to UN, then down NW ridge of UN and out via North Fork drainage. Might have attempted Deer but dry unconsolidated snow on the ridges made ascent and descent slower than normal. Will come back to hit Oklahoma and Deer from Halfmoon TH next time.

From North Half Moon TH up Oklahoma and traverse over to Deer Mountain, K 49 side trip, back onto traversing over some points to UN 13736 and finally Mount Champion. Descended towards the road and back to Half Moon TH. 19.09 miles and 6754 feet elevation gain.

Champion to PT 13736, typical Sawatch mountains, but still fun.

More boring Sawatch bumps, but cool in winter  Sucess!

6/16/06 - Quick hike en route to the Elks for the weekend.

1/5/18 - Started at the Highway 82 east side winter closure. Trenched my way up Lackawanna Gulch, then climbed the south slopes of Champion and gained its east ridge near the top. Traversed out and back to UN 13,736.

Combo Scramble  Sucess!

A long day in the Sawatch that included these two (Champion & 13,736) and "K-49", Deer Mountain and Mt. Oklahoma.
Good weather, windy and even was flurried on top of Okie!

From Oklahoma to Champion  Sucess!

Climbed these peaks at the end of a long ridge run of OK/Deer/K49. Fun way to hit 5 peaks in the top 300 in a day if the weather holds for you!

Lake Fork Loop  Sucess!

From the N Lake Fork TH. Climbed Champion and UN 13,736, as well as an out and back on "K49" enroute to Deer's South Ridge. Encountered some short but nice class 3 both enroute and on the south ridge. I descended Deer's NW ridge. Nasty!! The trail from the pass back to the TH was very pleasent. I'd guess about 11 miles and 5200 ft. RT 6:39

Combo Scramble  Sucess!

Climbed both of these peaks together with Deer Mountain. Some fun scrambling on the traverse with Deer. Definitely worth making the trip around to the north side of these peaks, the ridges on PT 13736 hold some scrambling fun!
