Route Climbed: Northeast Ridge Date Climbed: October 12, 2002  Sucess!

Did not encounter snow until we reached the end of the basin at 12,000. The route up to the saddle and remaining ridgeline was snow covered. The snow was mostly frozen, but did posthole a few times.

Encountered high winds at the summit, and the temps were extremely cold. Due to amount of snow and temps we opted to forgo Sunshine this time.

Nice mountain, but it was poor visibility due to wildfire-caused haze. Also did Sunshine.

Route Climbed: Silver Creek Trailhead to North Slope Date Climbed: July 4, 1996  Sucess!

This was a beautiful climb what with the wild flowers and all. As you climb that steep scree to the summit, turn around and watch as Uncompahgre comes into view over the ridge. A great scenic mountain. I didn't climb Sunshine this time because the thunder storms were starting.

Route Climbed: along the ridge Date Climbed: july 5, 2001  Sucess!

Fantastic walk along the ridge in the snow, went down via the talus slopes and snow fields, a little tricky picking the route from above, then bushwacked to the river and rejoined the main trial.

Husband, Jay, and I did this one in combination with Sunshine. We managed to get to the summit just before the storm, and went back the same way we came, over Sunshine.
