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.

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.

easy jaunt up a real pain  Sucess!

2/15/14- second winter hike of sunshine, w/mike. snowshoed all the way to sunshine's summit. set off an avalanche slamming a trekking pole into the summit's snow after returning from redcloud! really? the northern san juans have a very unstable snowpack currently.

3/8/08- finished off three years of nightmares with a winter summit of sunshine peak! summited with jamie, sarah and prakash on a beautiful march day. #25/100 winter

quite the change from a horrid weekend attempt of sunshine in march 2005. glad to have this one under my belt!

Redcloud Peak, Sunshine Peak  Sucess!

#21  Sucess!

We went over Redcloud and climbed to Sunshine. It was a pretty easy ridge, but definitely a tiring hike back over Redcloud and down.

Via Redcloud  Sucess!

Great day in the mountains. Descended the northwest slope. I don't recommend this unless you love 2000 ft of loose talus, but it saves you from re-climbing Redcloud. The talus was hell on my dog's paws.

Redcloud & Sunshine  Sucess!

Did the combo and descended the scree slope from the saddle....definitely steep and loose. A great day none the less!

Redcloud-Sunshine Duo  Sucess!

Did the traverse on over from Redcloud, and enjoyed great weather throughout. A warning, however: Sunshine looks a lot closer to Redcloud than it really is... This one was my 20th 14er.
