From Stewart Creek  Sucess!

Quick hike up to the summit of San Luis from Stewart Creek TH. After summiting San Luis, traversed to the summit of Organ Mountain. Nice hike, beautiful weather, gorgeous views.

Stewart Creek  Sucess!

We found some delightful, un-ruined camping off of the FS road for a great night's sleep. In the AM, shortly after leaving camp for the Stewart Creek TH a mountain lion crossed the road right in front of my Jeep! The scenery along this route was better than anticipated. I loved the creek and the beaver ponds. There was still a lot of snow in the gully above timber line prior to hitting the steep uphill to the saddle. Higher on the peak, the snow was minimal. Beautiful day. I was dragging a$$ a bit, but enjoyed this plenty. After a quick lunch on the summit we descended, had a celebratory beer at the Jeep, cleaned up, and headed back to the Front Range.

winter hike  Sucess!

The trip started out rough for me due to very cold toes despite the air temperature being comfortable for winter. Had some route-finding issues and dense fog move in after dark. Couldn't see squat so we dug a snow cave assuming we'd have to bivy for the night. Fortunately clouds finally let up and we could make our way back to camp. Beautiful area in the winter. With Kiefer and my dog Zion.

South Ridge via San Luis Pass  Sucess!

Climbed this bugger with Stephanie Lynn from San Luis Pass. Exceptionally bad snow, some route-finding errors and white-out conditions (at night) made for an epic climb that fortunately, turned out alright.
Castricone7 was with us for most of the trip.

NOT an easy mountain in winter.

San Juan Backpacking  Sucess!

Done along with 5 other 14ers during a week long backpacking trip in the San Juans. PRISTINE is the one word I would use to describe the standard route of San Luis. The only place I've seen better wildflowers is west of the divide in the Indian Peaks.

South Ridge  Sucess!

Doesn't quite measure up with other San Juan summits. But at least it's off the beaten path--only a few other people in the area. Perfect weather all day.

Standard route  Sucess!

Not much to recommend it as a peak, but an interesting remote area. Trip report

Stewart Creek Std. Route  Sucess!

Enjoyed a beautiful summer morning on the most remote 14er in CO! The trail started off with a nice, meandering route through the trees before it finally started to steepen around timberline. The hardest part was the climb from timberline to the saddle. From there on out, it was an easy ridge walk to the summit. Started at 7:00AM, summitted at 10:45, and back at the car at 2:30PM. This was a nice, relatvely easy hike...but it was quite LONG. The last mile through the meadow felt never-ending.

Perfect Day!  Sucess!

Nice hike up to 14,014 with fellow SP'er Patrick Vall and son. Not much snow left up high - a lot of wildlife - and wildflowers starting to bloom...
