i had been really sick and was unpleasant but is in a beautiful area
Done along with 5 other 14ers during a week long backpacking trip in the San Juans. Bagged Sunshine and Redcloud with my little brother as his first 14ers.
Redclound and Sunshine in the morning. Saw an elk at 14,000 feet, which I thought was odd. Attempted Handies after, but got stormed out. Bagged Handies the next day.
Another toasty summit day.
Started at 4:30am from the Silver Peak route. We were worried about weather becuase it started to rain at around sunrise. The weather then cleared and it became a gorgous day. We got to the summit at around 8:30am. Then we went and tagged Sunshine. We had planned on doing Sun Dog, but the weather began to roll in. We then hung out in the old moraine below Sunshine for about and hour and half. These two peaks were my first summits in the San Juans and 14'ers 19 and 20! BEAUTIFUL area! Cant wait to come back
Rainy day (but no severe weather), with Sunshine.
Return over Redcloud a bit much with weather moving in but thankfully it held. Easy ridge run.
Did the Redcloud/Sunshine combo in 3:30 via the normal route (norteast ridge), had great views of the area`s other three 14ers.
Nice hike, great weather day!
This was sort of an unofficial meetup.com hike. Some of the group decided to head back to Denver, but the rest of us climbed the peaks. I think this was a little easier than Handies, but it was still pretty tough. I was the last of the group to reach the top. We rested a bit, then headed over to Sunshine.
Really windy near the summit and crossing over to Sunshine. Hey I did it twice in one day!
It was a pretty nice day in the area untill the winds picked up on the summit of redcloud then the winds got worse on the traverse to sunshine. I did enjoy the summit of redcloud the most because of the red color.
From 13832 and 13811 to Redcloud, then down via Sunshine and Sundog. 6:45 RT
Hiked the three from the Silver Creek Trailhead with my girlfriend Meghan. Awesome views of Wetterhorn Peak, Matterhorn Peak, and Uncompahgre Peak. I first climbed Redcloud Peak in August of 2006 with my friend Keith but we got stormed off before reaching Sunshine Peak.
nice hike - weathered off my Sunshine attempt, though.
NE Ridge; summer 2006.
Wonderful fall day.
Took a late turn on what we thought was the ridge leading to "Sundog" and Sunshine but ended up on the shoulder of Redcloud and eventually the summit. Descending our intended route the turn off from the main trail was covered in avalanche debris and that's why we missed it on the way up.
great group hike with WSC college students.
3rd 14er in 3 days. From the Silver Creek TH with Mountain Girl.
