This was my first climb of Wetterhorn. We did the standard South East Ridge route from Matterhorn Creek trailhead.
Beautiful peak in a beautiful area of the state...I shall return.
Hopefully in clear weather.
fun scramble at the end, linked with uncomp/matterhorn
Did the double peak day. I saw very few people. The different colors of the soil and the expansive area above treeline were really cool. There are some sweet looking rock outcroppings that looked like great challenges to the north.
Definitely one of my favorites! Did it in combo with Uncompahgre from Mattorhorn TH.
Fun scramble at the end.
Loved this mountain! Great introduction to class III fourteeners.
What a great mountain in an awesome valley. I started at the Matterhorn Creek TH and had great weather on this threesome. Made the summit of Wetterhorn in 1:40 with a ctc for all three in 7:50.
I'll definately return to do this one again.
Great fun climb. Me and my old man dad dropped the young guns like a rock. Say hello to Nick from Nashville/Crested Butte.
of two that day! Loved climbing the final staircase to the summmit!
This seemed like one of the FASTEST 14er summits I've done! At #40, I compare the fun scrambling to the likes of the Crestones. We summited at 6:30am (my earliest summit). It was amazingly beautiful!!! ...we made it a duo day and hiked the L-O-N-G slog over to Uncompahgre as well!
Fun climbing to the top
Got this one solo after Unc. Nobody on the peak the entire day.
First 14'er. Great weather. Fairly Crowded
A great scramble route. Our dog did all but the final summit pitch.
Definitely a fun scramble
One of my favorite 14ers. View from the summit is amazing. Route can be kind of hard to find.
One of my favorite 14ers so far, continued on to Uncompahgre.
Awesome climb, perfect weather! Drove straight from Denver after last-call at the bar for 1.5 day excursion, so unfortunately we didn't make it up Uncompahgre. Started below 10K due to vehicle limitations, so it was a really long day. I don't recommend this climb after last-call, LOL.
Fantastic overnight at the base of the Wetterhorn. Made summit bright and early. Checked our watches and decided to do the traverse over to the Matterhorn for a dual summit afternoon. Beautiful day.
