Linked with Wetterhorn  Sucess!

A long round trip across a lot of dull tundra. Some interesting technical walls. Great windbreaks for tents on the summit.

Uncompaghre from Matterhorn Creek TH  Sucess!

A couple of the folks hiking with us didnt have 4wd so we did this route from the Matterhorn creek TH. It was a bit longer and more elevation than doing it from the 4wd spot on Nellie, but I think it offers a more pleasant and scenic approach? Very cool peak, with views to kill for. The San Juans are pretty amazing.

A group hike  Sucess!

I was from out of state and was very fortunate to partner up with 9 others to summit this mtn. The pre-dawn ride to the upper TH was unforgettable! It was a fun, successful day. For me though, it went too fast!

Bagged with others.  Sucess!

I did this one on a beautiful summer weekend in conjunction with Wetterhorn, Matterhorn, and Broken Hill, south across the valley from Uncompahgre. I subsequently bushwhacked down a southwards creek gully from Broken Hill back to my car.

San Juan Backpacking  Sucess!

Done along with 5 other 14ers during a week long backpacking trip in the San Juans. Hitched to the beginning of the 4wd road and hiked in from there.

Hard earned summit  Sucess!

This is really weird, I climbed this peak EXACTLY 11 months ago, same day following the tracks of the same person (Ken Nolan). --que Twilight Zone music... ;o)

A hard day out under very windy, snowy conditions. Summit was covered in rime and by the time we left, so were we. 18 people attempted this trip (14ers.com) and 11 of us summitted.

Uncompahgre and Wetterhorn  Sucess!

Ascended Unco first. Went up the west face, which was a bit scary when crossing the steep snow fields. Descended the main trail and ran back over to Wetterhorn. Tressa Breindel accompanied me.

Beautifully Abandoned  Sucess!

Camped at the Nellie Creek TH, hiked in the blazing sun passing only two other hikers all day. Beautiful summit views of Wetterhorn and Matterhorn close by, and American Basin in the distance. One of my favorite areas...

Nobody on the Trail... Crystal Clear Skies  Sucess!

If you want to escape the crowds and see aspens blazing yellow, hike Uncompahgre on a weekday in late September. Especially enjoyed throwing large boulders off the cliff from the summit. Awesome.

East Slopes  Sucess!

Climbed the east slopes from the Matterhorn Creek Trailhead. The hike was long but otherwise easy. The weather was perfect. On the summit there was no wind, and one could not see any clouds in any direction as far as one could see.
