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

Handies Sunshine  Sucess!

Did the classic double summit, then down the loose scree fields into the S. Fork basin. Fun, fun, fun.

With Handies and Redcloud  Sucess!

Brutal talus slog and sketchy scree to reach the northwest face. Some fun scrambling on the ridge near the summit. Amazing views!

Done along with 5 other 14ers during a week long backpacking trip in the San Juans. Bagged Sunshine and Redcloud with my little brother as his first 14ers. Good times!

Redcloud and Sunshine  Sucess!

Redclound and Sunshine in the morning. Saw an elk at 14,000 feet, which I thought was odd. Attempted Handies after, but got stormed out. Bagged Handies the next day.

Met some runners going back & forth between Redcloud & Sunshine . . . oh, to have even a portion of that energy.

Combo with Redcloud  Sucess!

Finally! Failed to reach this summit 2x due to weather and equipment failure. This day I had absolutely perfect weather and my equipment held up so I had no excuse. Some of the best views in Co. #20

Number 20!  Sucess!

Started at 4:30am from the Silver Peak route. We were worried about weather becuase it started to rain at around sunrise. The weather then cleared and it became a gorgous day. We got to the summit of Redcloud at around 8:30am. Then we went and tagged Sunshine. We had planned on doing Sun Dog, but the weather began to roll in. We then hung out in the old moraine below Sunshine for about and hour and half. These two peaks were my first summits in the San Juans and 14'ers 19 and 20! BEAUTIFUL area! Cant wait to come back
