west gully snow climb  Sucess!

climbed uncompahgre w/milburn via its southernmost west gully on a wavering may weather day. a mixed bag of snow, driving wind and calm bluebird skies had us constantly changing layers! the gully itself was a fine, fairly low-angled climb, albeit a bit tiring in the top 500' without a reprieve from kicking steps.

slipped up the nearby 13er broken hill solo afterwards before weaving my way through the snow-covered iron beds on the way out.

Via Nellie Creek  Sucess!

Much easier then what was expected. But then again, we also had a path to follow from a good friend who was up there 2 days previous! Great weather!!! Very atypical for January

First CO 14ner  Sucess!

I did this as part of a 3 day backpack trip. It was the first 14,000 ft mountain I had been on in CO and I was shocked at the number of people on the trail. Of course it was a holiday weekend, which made it worse.

Uncompahgre Peak  Sucess!

Climbed via the South Slopes from Nellie Creek. A great hike through the Uncompahgre Highlands to the rugged summit plateau. The trail was in good condition and the crowds minimal. The views of Wetterhorn Peak and the neighboring San Juan peaks were excellent.

Route Climbed: From Matterhorn Creek TH: Wetterhorn, Uncompahgre & Matterhorn Combo  Sucess!

The summit of Uncompahgre is AMAZING for a variety of reasons and worth taking the long slog to get up high and enjoy!
