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.

Triple bonus  Sucess!

Gorgious wildflower season. Banged it out before clouds moved in after doing Uncompahgre. Then they left so we went for Matterhorn too! Didn't see the notch on the way up and ended up just climbing up the face. Probably low 5th class. much easier descent to the notch.

Very fun mountain  Sucess!

We did the standard ridge route and it was a a very fun, and enjoyable climb. This is a great route for those looking amazing views or enjoy some scrambling.

Magnificent!  Sucess!

We accidentally took the wrong way and went up Matterhorn Creek but we went around and eventually found our way back to the main trail at about 13,000'. But the nature of the climb and the view from the summit made this my new fav 14er.

Really Fun  Sucess!

I loved this climb! It looked so hard and then went down so easy. A very fun scramble to the summit.

Southeast Ridge  Sucess!

I climbed The Wetterhorn with my CMC BMS instructor, Robert. We camped at Matterhorn Creek trailhead, started around 5:45, arrived at the summit around 9:50AM. There's not too much snow to deal with, and the weather was almost perfect. There were lots of marmots about, one chased us up the staircase and all the way to the summit. A couple of those fat bastards chewed up the handles of my trekking poles. We headed back down, packed up our campsite and headed over to Yankee Boy Basin to climb Sneffels on July 3rd.

With Matterhorn  Sucess!

This was probably one of my favs for the season. The final pitch was exhilarating. Might do this one again. San Juan beauty!

perfect  Sucess!

only mistake was down climbing straight down the mountain from the ledge instead of taking the conventional trail down the ridge. this turned into a very long spree filled day trying to traverse back to the trail from the west basin.

Wet Boots Sink Ships

Made it near the mid-twelves with Arien, Tom and Ben. Mother nature was acting up making for a risky summit. Could not believe how high the green grass climbed on Matterhorn's southern face.

Wetterhorn - Matterhorn  Sucess!

Climbed both peaks from the Matterhorn Creek Trailhead. The class 3 final pitch was excited. There were many marmots in the boulderfield around 12,500 feet.
