Short but sweet.2nd 14er back in CO in 10 days! On the way down, saw at least 500 sheep in the alpine valley at about 12,000'. Pretty cool! Perfect weather.

Long ago  Sucess!

With the family. The last bit isn't all that bad -- steep, but short.

Standard Route  Sucess!

Summitted around 10:40 with a flatlander friend who climbed Wetterhorn as her first 14er! Very fun, solid class 3 pitch to the summit, but didn't really enjoy some of the loose stuff just below it.

2 of 14  Sucess!

Second of 14 14ers in 11 days. Quickly became one of my favorite peaks when I saw it the alpenglow from the drainage below.

3 for 3 in the San Juans  Sucess!

Climbed Uncompahgre, Handies, and Wetterhorn on consecutive days from our Silver Spur Motel "base camp" in Lake City. The San Juans are amazing! Recommend high clearance 4wd for road to Matterhorn TH. Fun scramble near the summit, but not as exposed as we had expected. I was feeling really good about myself on the climb until we passed a girl who had done the whole thing barefoot and was on her way down. Said she forgot her boots but still wanted to climb so she went barefoot.

Uncompahgre/Wetternorn combo  Sucess!

Fantastic, but looooong day in the Matterhorn Creek area. It was a fatiguing day, but well worth it!

SE Ridge Ski  Sucess!

Camped in upper Matterhorn Creek and climbed from there. Didn't feel well, so I ditched my skis at 13.5. Summitted and downclimbed to my skis and skied the ridge down into the open bowls beneath the E face while the rest of my group skied the face.

Absolute Fun!  Sucess!

Wetterhorn Peak was one of my most favorite climbs to date. My niece and I made the summit and will share a memory that will last a lifetime. A little route finding, some challenging moves, some exposure and the reward of standing on the summit made it something that words cannot really describe. I would climb it again in a heartbeat.
