From Little Molas Lake  Sucess!

With Ryan Draft. via W Turkshead. On to Turks Head & Sultan. Dropped off Sultan's NE shoulder [one tricky notch to negotiate] to Rt 550 close to Silverton, where passing motorists were definitely not interested in giving us a lift up the road. Heavy early afternoon rain made the prospect of walking 7 mi up the road somewhat unattractive. Hmm. We ended up going into to Silverton and *paying* someone to drive us up to Molas pass. Still, a nice set of ridges.

Started this hike around 11:30am. After not understanding the approach beta i just schwacked through willows after two or three switch backs on the Colorado Trail from Little Molas Lake. There was a route..ish. Spencer Peak was neat, the ridge down to Grand Turk was somewhat sketch with new, wind blown snow. Grand Turk is an easy jaunt from Spencer. Sultan proved to be the more tiresome of the three. Awesome summits with great views of the San Juan's. I then traversed back, under Grand Turk, over Spencer and then back into the Molas Creek drainage. 4.5 hrs round trip

SP Summer Gathering  Sucess!

Climbed as part of the SP Summer Gathering 2008. At the time the peak had not been officially named, we were glad we took the extra effort to go over this "unnamed bump".

From Little Molas Lake (Molas Creek Direct)  Sucess!

I summitted this mountain right before it was officially named. We enjoyed amazing weather for summer in the San Juans and the company could not have been beat! The SP Colorado Summer Gathering was a blast! (Thank you Aaron for organizing.)
