Ditto Ericd  Sucess!

Ditto what Ericd said. If anticipating busy summit, recommend helmet so you don't have to worry (as much) about rocks accidentally being kicked down from above you.

A class-3 primer  Sucess!

Enjoyed every minute of this short class-3 climb! After camping in the flat meadows, trail gave a gradual grassy ascent with just a little bouldering. SE ridge is obvious and was surprised how high the actual dirt path continues. To get to the Prow, below the summit, I took an east face variation which worked well to a notch where intermediate ledges led up to the perfect summit plateau! After only a few minutes on top, we enjoyed a special treat from the sky -getting buzzed by an airplane!

Solo  Sucess!

Solo from 2WD trailhead. The final pitch was wet which made things spicy but overall a great day.

Excellent scramble  Sucess!

Climbed from Matterhorn Basin - this has definitely got to be one of the best standard 14er climbs out there!

Loop around peak and a summit  Sucess!

West Fork to summit to East Fork to Middle Fork to West Fork. Saw about a dozen people in the hour around the summit but not another person anywhere around off the 14er trail in three days. The way to do it.

marmot central  Sucess!

Made a solo jaunt up the Wetterhorn. Ran into 4 other friendly climbers on the peak, which kind of surprised me for a Tuesday (I'm obviously not from CO).
Also watched a massive sheep drive halfway around the mountain, which was pretty entertaining. Saw a Volvo at the upper trailhead.

Wetterhorn/Uncompahgre  Sucess!

One of the best mountains I've ever done, I loved the spicy gully near the summit and from now, I started to look at the exposure bars on fourteeners dot com page.

The Long Way  Sucess!

Took the long way. Backpacked in from the north (West Fork Cimarron Creek trailhead). I had wanted to see the impressive north face of Wetterhorn and it didn't disappoint. Made the summit the next morning, despite stomach issues. Fun climb. The backpack out felt very long.

Standard Route  Sucess!

Wow, I really enjoyed this peak. Beautiful approach basin, nice physical peak with a fun finish. I went solo but, as this is a 14er in the summer, was not really alone. Took the direct finish to find an under-25 shirtless male review on the summit...lol! Thanks, boys! Back in Lake City in time for lunch.,

SE ridge  Sucess!

Started at 2pm and summitted at 5:30 and had great evening lighting on all the San Juans and fantastic sunset over Uncompahgre!

Standard Route  Sucess!

Quick day via the standard route. Though it would take longer so we started a bit early, ended up watching the sunrise from the ridge. Nice day!

long day from Wetternhorn Basin TH  Sucess!

My buddy Danny and I got to the TH around 8 and headed up to the pass. Descending into the basin, the wildflowers were amazing. Wood posts marked the path across the basin towards Wetterhorn. Reaching the saddle to the SW of the peak, we angled up to the NE, eventually joining up with the main trail. We reached the peak at 12:45 and headed down soon after. We climbed a couple of boulders a mile or 2 from the TH before returning to Montrose in time for dinner. All-in-all my favorite 14er trip so far.
