From camp in Stormy Gulch  Sucess!

After hiking in from Beartown and setting up camp, we went up Storm King. We did not find a trail to speak of, which made it pretty annoying. It was mainly loose class 2 with a few easy scrambling options.

Standard route  Sucess!

After a long approach from Molas Pass via the Vestal-Trinity saddle, the actual route was pretty easy. Cool, remote area. Trip report.

nice hike  Sucess!

From Beartown via Storm Gulch - the path in Storm Gulch was in a very bad shape, many fallen trees, we lost the trail many times. The route finding higher up: to the saddle between Silex and Storm King, then onto next saddle between Peak 8 and SW ridge of Storm King was easy to follow. I expected more scramble and honestly one can keep the route at 2+ difficulty if he wants to. We went up right on the ridge and made it a little more interesting, descended more 2+ gully.
The summit was spectacular.
The weather was interesting - little rain, little snow, some sun, lots of clouds and wind. I guess has to be a little stormy for such a name.

Easy, straight-forward mountain. Some goos views to be had. We climbed this after Peak 9.

SW ridge  Sucess!

An easy climb that we did in the evening after the day's storms had passed. We were in the area for several days and didn't see a single soul except for the goats. A pair followed us all the way back to camp and hung out for a while.

from Lake Silex  Sucess!

fun ascent from Stormy Gulch. The weather was not too great. I was surprised how many people climb this relatively inaccesible mountain. I think most people go up a little to the left of the south ridge.

South Face from upper Leviathan lake  Sucess!

Marella and I along with her father and our friend Kathy summitted with unusually great weather. Beautiful summit views.
