Great mountain!  Sucess!

Summitted for the second time, this time with my dad who is 66 years old. This was his first 14er!

Nellie Creek Route  Sucess!

Jathan Cantu, Dan and Margaret Spare, reached the summit in 3 hours with beautiful weather and views. One of the most scenic 14ers for sure. Awesome views from the top and marmots everywhere! Storm rolled in at 1pm, but thankfully we were back at the trailhead.

Matterhorn Creek  Sucess!

What a superb day for a hike, and although a long walk from Matterhorn, the trek across the alpine meadow and solitude more than compensate. We left Matterhorn at 4:30A and were on top at about 8:30A.

From Nellie Creek TH  Sucess!

Interesting day. Had a little snow shower move in while above 14000' and then a little fog for the descent. By the time we were back in the basin, it was sunny again.

YWAM climb  Sucess!

Great day in the morning! This is a splendid place to take a hike.
If we could do it again, we'd take our time and
definitely take some more cameras.

Route Climbed: West gullies Date Climbed: Summer 1993  Sucess!

I climbed with my brother/SP member Woodie Hopper. We camped between Uncompahgre and Wetterhorn & intended to summit both. Our attempt on Wetterhorn the next day was aborted near the summit due to an ominous building storm.

An EXTREMELY windy day and very cold. I had to keep hiking at a fast pace to stay warm. Frost lined everything in the tent that morning when I woke. With the exception of 2 people, I had the mountain and basin all to myself. Despite the wind, it was a good time. Very pretty area.

We stayed at the crystal lodge iN Lake City the night before and Crestd Butte the night of. The following 2 days were the first fall storms. Happy trails!!!!! A must do trail!!!!

I went up in the late afternoon, gambling (correctly, fortunately) that the storm clouds were done doing what they do. As a result, I had the place to myself.

Route Climbed: Standard Route from Nellie Creek Trailhead  Sucess!

I had the summit all to myself for 45 minutes. The only people I saw all day were a few folks on my way down. I'd wanted to do this peak since seeing it from the summit of Redcliff in July and knew a mid-week September day would give me the solitude I was looking for. The aspens along Nellie Creek are in full color making for a beautiful drive. Great day!

Good one for a flatlander. Pretty easy, even with snow on the trails. I've done worse climbs- this one was just a slow trudge. Great views!
