Route Climbed: East Slopes from Stewart Creek Date Climbed: July 20th, 2002  Sucess!

Very nice hike up the valley to 12,000 or so. You cannot see the peak until you reach the saddle. Clouds moved in very early - around 9:30am or so - and there were lots of others enroute to the summit, so I am not sure whether they continued or turned around.



All direction posted for this peak are excellent, but would recomment using either Roach's 13er directions vs. Roach's 14ers. Took us about an hour from Gunnison to reach trailhead - roads were only gravel and dirt but very well maintained (compared to alot of Chaffee County roads!).

A different experience than on other fourteeners; more remote than most.. Windy and cold on top; took 1:43 to the summit.

Route Climbed: Stewert Creek Trailhead-North East Ridge Date Climbed: July 16, 2000  Sucess!

This was an uneventful climb. My sons Troy & Pat & me did see 5 elk across Stewert Creek just before the steep grunt to the ridge. I've tried twice before to climb this mountain from the Willow Creek Trailhead. The first time I ended up on San Luis Pass in a snow storm. The second time we (my wife and I) started down into the valley southwest of the peak when the clouds started rolling in. We decided to go back to the car and were glad we did. It began raining as we reached our car and was still raining as we ate breakfast in Creede..

Beautiful climb starting out almost flat for a couple miles past numerous Beaver ponds. The climb is realatively straightforward... Class 1.
