Nevado Santa Isabel  Sucess!

We woke up before 1 AM to get ready for the climb. Shaylee decided that she didn't want to do the climb so Kessler and I packed up and got ready to go.

Leo, Kessler, and I drove to the beginning of the trail and headed up. It was a steady climb and there were signs pointing out where the Central Glacier was in 1900, 1960, 1990, 2003, and 2010. Sadly, it's almost gone.

At the head of the Central Glacier, we climbed a very steep chute through the cliffs to a small plateau below the summit glacier.

We climbed over the moraine and put on out glacier gear before roping uo the glacier. The first part was on steep ice then it was a fairly gentle climb up the gentle glacier to the summit.

We reached the summit just after sunrise. It was cloudy sometimes, but the clouds would break for some spectacular views.

After enjoying the summit, we headed back down. We saw some interesting birds at the snout of the glacier.
