Redcloud Peak, Sunshine Peak  Sucess!

First trip to the San Juans. 5.5 hour round trip. Extremely windy on the ridge and weather was unstable from start of hike.

We only saw one other climber all day. Beautiful day with my husband and dog.

#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.

Sunshine Via Redcloud  Sucess!

Lots of Snow. Met some buddies up there and climbed Sunshine and Redcloud in one day. Very Long Day. #3 and #4 14er Climbed.

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.

Silver Creek TH  Sucess!

I shot over from Redcloud, took a little longer than I thought, but the ridge was a nice little jaunt over to Sunshine. I would really like to make one big loop going the standard way then from Sunshine go down and over "Sundog" and then drop down from there onto the main trail or vice versa.

Silver Creek TH  Sucess!

Standard loop. Climbed Sunshine first via the saddle between it and Redcloud. Some loos crap up to the saddle but almost all the mountains I've done this summer have been on rotten slopes so getting sort of used to stuff moving under my feet.

Sunshine  Sucess!

Decided to go a different route since I had already done Redcloud prior. Not sure of the route name but it was the first time I got a little nervous on a descent. Great adventure!

Sunshine on a Sun-Shiney Day  Sucess!

Reached the top a little after noon - not a cloud in the sky! Love that unpredictable Colorado weather!

Route: From Redcloud  Sucess!

Climbed sometime in the late '90's. Don't remember too much about the climb, trail-ran it (and Redcloud) I think ......
