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...

Stewart Creek Trail  Sucess!

My first San Juan 14er. I hiked with three other guys, two of whom were ultramarathon trail runners. We left our campsite just after 6AM and reached the summit just before 9:30. Mike and Matt, the trail runners, descended into Cochetopa Gulch to run the Colorado Trail back to camp. Kevin and I headed east to attempt Organ Mtn. There was a mean looking storm brewing to the southeast, so we summited Point ~13480 before turning back. We tried glissading down into Stewart Creek valley, but the snow was too soft. We returned to the campsite at about 1PM. Mike and Matt got there about an hour before us.
