Uneva Peak and Ridgeline  Sucess!

My first Colorado peak! This was my fourth hike of the week during my Colorado vacation. We parked on the exit ramp at Vail Pass (exit 190 rest area off of I-70) and took the Corral Creek trail up through beautiful meadows. The trail petered out and we followed the ridge up from the south, up Point 12380, and then on to the true summit. We saw some ptarmigan up at the summit; so cool! Temps were cool with a breeze, so we booked it down to a few more points along the ridge, including Peak 12089. We went down from there, met back up with the trail, and then the sun came back out on the way down. A truly beautiful day!

Tourist Visit  Sucess!

On a 4 day vacation in Colorado from California, hitting as many 14ers as possible....After hiking Elbert earlier in the day I had reservations in Frisco for the "Decalibron" hike the following day. But the Elbert hike was easier than planned and I was in Frisco, checked into the hotel by 3:30. That's way too much time to let pass without bagging another peak. So I looked over the maps and saw Uneva, a P1K about 15 minutes away so decided to go for it. Went up from Vail pass, trail to about 11,700 or so, then up grassy slopes to the ridge south of Uneva where I picked up a use trail, up and over a false summit to the actual peak. A broken glass jar probably held a summit register at one point, no only glass shards and a pen remain. Fun hike!

BC scouting for next year  Sucess!

With Michelle from VP rest area. Great area for BC skiing. I may be the only nudnik that does not already know that since I am a recent transplant to Colorado. The bowls on the north side slopes are full of snow still.

Vail Pass Ski Tour  Sucess!

Second ascent of this peak, this time a winter ski ascent with multiple descents of some nice powder strewn glades in the adjacent drainages working back towards Vail Pass. Fun area for a ski tour.

windy winter  Sucess!

hiked sneva and uneva during a significant wind storm on a chilly early march day. the climbing wasn't overly challenging yet the constant ups and downs really took a toll on our bodies by the end of the day.

South Ridge  Sucess!

Started at the bottom of Vail Pass, Copper side, and hiked up the Gore Range Trail to Uneva Pass, summited "Sneva" to the east of the pass and then up the south ridge of Uneva. Longer way to climb this peak, but scenic hike with some nice wildflower meadows and tarns along the way, plus an extra peak.

From Vail Pass  Sucess!

I went with a group who were primarily interested in seeing wild flowers. I had once tried to be proficient in their identities so this was all very helpful. Wonderful views from the top of the Gore Range.

Summit Sunset  Sucess!

Climbed Uneva after work, started around 6pm and managed to summit just as the sun was setting. What an incredible sunset and alpenglow! Of course we came down in the dark, but that's what headlamps are for, right?

A pretty mountain. The day I climbed it most mountain in all directions where socked in. Ended up running from a thunderstorm at the end of the day. It is much more enjoyable to hike from Wheeler Flats...

Route Climbed: Vail Pass Date Climbed: April of 2005  Sucess!

Uneva make for a good early spring hike. It also makes for a good look-out spot for the Gore Range proper to check out early season "conditions." Lot's of backcountry skiing up there because of access.
