Redcloud - Sunshine  Sucess!

Climbed over Redcloud to Sunshine, got lazy, and decided to descend the Northwest Face. Well, I ended up getting stuck in the wrong gully, and that turned out to be pretty bad experience (steep, very loose, crumbling rock with some Class 3 mixed in). Ugh. I'll know better next time.

Redcloud, Sunshine,

Easy stroll through light snow/slush across the saddle to Sunshine. Cool but very nice weather! With Astroclimber and Deb.

After Redcloud  Sucess!

Another easy 14er as Trisha and I approach finishing. My 53rd, her 52nd, Cimarron's 5th. Climbers who had come up the alternative route on the west side recommended against going down that way, so we re-traced our steps. Good trail all the way.

Got a late 1pm start after making it to the TH from Ouray. Warm, dry, breezy conditions with no snow to be crossed. Finished at 8pm.

Descended the gully between Sunshine and Sundog. Rough descent, but pretty once lower in the basin.

A great winter peak  Sucess!

Tried in Feb and got a late start when -5 temps stuffed us so far in our sleeping bags we didn't hear the alarm. The East Ridge is miserable sliding talus without snow cover. There is a magnificent East Bowl I want to come back and drop into some time.

Ain't no Sunshine when she goes..  Sucess!

And there wasn't any sunshine when I was on the summit. Hail, snow, and wind; I didn't stay long. 2X
