Beautiful Approach  Sucess!

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

Silver Creek Trail  Sucess!

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.

Redcloud - sunshine in high winds  Sucess!

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.

Redcloud - Sunshine - Sun Dog  Sucess!

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.

Unknown Route  Sucess!

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.

Redcloud Peak  Sucess!

Climbed with Sunshine via the North Slopes from Lake San Cristobal Road. A pleasant hike throught the San Juan highlands to Redcloud's colorful summit. As storm clouds continued to move in, we rested on the summit for only a few minutes before beginning the traverse over to Sunshine.
