From Redcloud  Sucess!

Intended to come up Sunshine first but missed the turn because it was covered with avalanche debris so we came over from Redcloud.

marmotville  Sucess!

On a group hike I guided, the marmots were everywhere and ready to eat our lunches if we stepped away or turned our backs. Cheeky little buggers!

Sunshine Peak  Sucess!

Climbed with Redcloud via the North Slopes from Lake San Cristobal Road. An easy traverse from the summit of Redcloud lasting only an hour. The last several hundred feet to the summit were the most exhausting but the view was well worth it. After enjoying a snack on the summit we headed back over Redcloud and back to the trailhead to rest up for tommorrow's next hike.

Marmot  Sucess!

Most memorable thing from this trip was a marmot that was very friendly and chirpy about 1/2 way up :-)

Cloudy but no T-storms. Sunshine's south face looks pretty rugged from summit.

5 of 14  Sucess!

Fifth of 14 14ers in 11 days. Headed over from Redcloud and descended the NW scree. Good weather, good people, and good whiskey on the summit.

Traverse from Redcloud  Sucess!

Over from Redcloud Peak on a fine trail and a fine day. Descended the Northwest Face, returning to the Silver Creek Trailhead. I didn't mind the loose scree here all that much, but it was certainly a little tricky, especially in the gully section, and I imagine that I would not have liked going up this way. My first San Juan summits, woohoo!

Cool Ridge Hike  Sucess!

I really enjoyed the hike over to this mountain. It lengthened the day a bit, but hey why not try to summit if it is so close.

F-16s  Sucess!

This was my third time climbing Sunshine. Silver Creek approach over Redcloud. Saw 4 F-16s fly past summit. Previous climb of this route Sep 1, 1996.

From Redcloud Peak. Hard hike after doing the San Juan Solstice the day before.

Came from Redcloud  Sucess!

A nice traverse from Redcloud Peak. Hairy snow conditions in the basin gullies made for an wet, on-edge descent.

Sunshine via Mill Creek  Sucess!

Hiked in via Mill Creek...the most noteworthy scree I've ever encountered. Didn't hit any contiguous snow until 11,000'. ridges were heavily corniced, an ice axe was a must in short sections.
