Started up at 6:25AM and reached the summit at 9:25. Perfect weather and awesome views on this fine morning. Stayed about 35 mins then back to the TH at 12:20PM. My 39th 14'er........sweet!
Fantastic, but looooong day in the Matterhorn Creek area. It was a fatiguing day, but well worth it!
Great day out. Skied the East face then went over to Matterhorn to ski from the summit of that one too.
Snowy variation of the standard route. Some long glissades down the east bowls.
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.
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.
W and U together...makes a long day.
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.
