Climbed with Redcloud. Another Gorgeous day in the San Juans!
An absolute killer day! I never saw a soul…. it was like having the whole wilderness area to myself. Part of a 10 day 18 14,000 ft. summit solo climbing trip. Would go again.
From Red Cloud.
The distance between Redcloud and Sunshine is mellow and easy hiking. This areas reddish gold soil was very unique to what I'm used to seeing closer to Denver. This climb was great but my trip through Lake City was a real dissapointment...nothing to do there so I just hung at my camp and consumed beer :)
Uneventful, but beautiful hike on this 14er.
Winter climb, turned back in bad weather before Redcloud, last 14er before moving.
Climbed in conjunction w/ Redcloud. Second 14er behind Redcloud.
A delightfil, simple walk from Redcloud. I shared a cup of tea with one individual at the summit. Just the two of us for awhile then he left. I stayed for awhile.
A very good day.
Combined with Redcloud. Nothing special, ok views of San Juans.
Even the smallest 14er needs some love
Beautiful day and great views. Descended back over Redcloud to Silver Creek.

Great traverse between Redcloud to Sunshine with just enough snow and ice to make it fun!
Perfect day to be in the mountains - the descent was steep but I enjoyed it
fun descent into a beautiful basin-- steep and loose with one tricky spot
Climbed Redcloud, then summited Sunshine and descended its northwest ridge to Sundog. Fun day, but it was rainy off and on.
Continued on to Sunshine from Redcloud. Did Handies the following day.
Yet another 14er!
Jathan Cantu and Todd Schauer reached the summit of Sunshine Peak at 12:15 pm after descending from Redcloud our first fourteener!! The weather was overcast with intermittent sun and light rain most of the day. As we downclimbed through the talus field via South Fork Valley the sun and moisture made for a beautiful rainbow across the head of the valley looking down from Sunshine Peak. Another interesting scene was seeing the South Fork stream seemingly come out of nowhere from the side of a steep talus slope. You would think we were on another planet surrounded by the jagged cliffs and red peaks. Next stop...Handies Peak!
I hit Sunshine on my way from Sundog to Redcloud. It took me a little over three hours from trailhead over Sundog to Sunshine.
