#32  Sucess!

One of the best sustained scrambles in CO. Little actual exposure but still some good adrenaline pumping moves. Thanks whoever left an American flag up there.

Great finish to summit!  Sucess!

Rocked it out with two others who also did the traverse from Matterhorn (because they crazy). Great final stretch to the summit and I would love to do this one in winter next time!

Gorgeous blue bird day - fun scramble  Sucess!

Solo hike/climb. Really fun mountain. The pitch from the Prow to the summit is an exciting, airy but short-lived class 3 scramble. Like nearby Uncompaghre, the views are unbeatable.

Wetterhorn NE Ridge   Sucess!

Went up prepared for anything, including snowfield, ice, as it was my first climb in the San Juans. Well, the snow was in great condition, but managed to stay on rock for the climb itself. Incredible creek crossing! One of the more idyllic peaks. Easy approach and no loose rock makes this a classic climb. Got a puncture on the way out to Lake City as well.

Beautiful weekend in the Matterhorn Creek Basin. We climbed Matterhorn Friday evening, Uncompahgre on Saturday and the great Wetterhorn on Sunday. Super fun climb and a great cap to the weekend. Fun route!

Wetterhorn   Sucess!

Good times till I rolled my ankle on the way down which slowed my descent

Paired with Matterhorn Pk  Sucess!

With Megan Berry. Standard route. Descent made more interesting by joining the Wetterhorn-Matterhorn ridge close to the low point between the peaks, and scrambling over to Matterhorn Peak. Puncture on the drive out to Lake City. Damn.

Nice route  Sucess!

Nice route on East Ridge. Do not do what I did. I stayed on the ridge proper and was lured by cairns way out right onto the east face a few hundred feet below the Ships Prow. Rock was loose and time was wasted. I made it back to the notches but it was annoying. Stick right beside the Prow all the way and you will be good.

Southeast Ridge  Sucess!

Mary and I did this one after a warm-up on Handies the day before. The meadows and wild flowers were amazing.

SE Ridge  Sucess!

A very fun and pretty climb from the Matterhorn TH with perfect weather. Made summit with hubz on our 14th wedding anniversary, which was cool.

Dry October  Sucess!

Second time up, surprisingly dry for this late in October, I wasn't even planning on climbing it but it looked so dry from Broken Hill that I just couldn't resist!

Loved it  Sucess!

Drove to the Matterhorn Creek trailhead planning to hike the following day but the weather looked good so I started up the trail. The weather held so I was able to enjoy an evening on top.

Great mountain.  Sucess!

1st summit August 09, 2014
This is one of most scenic Colorado 14ers! Group of four of us made it to the top around 8:20. Weather was perfect, views fantastic, in one word, San Juans are the best!

2nd summit July 25, 2016
Another beautiful climb, this mountain is really beautiful.
