Very cool looking mountain, thanks Aaron.
Great page for a great mountain!
The trail to the peak of Wetterhorn has been change. Last year, the Colorado Fourteener's Initiative spent the entire summer creating a new sustainable trail to the top. When entering from the Matterhorn Creek Basin, you will see signs directing you to where the trail begins. It's an awesome trail, everybody should try it some time :-)
Excellent information, which includes the pix.
Thanks for all the trouble.
After seeing the impressive view of Wetterhorn from Redcliff, it is definitely on my list!
Wetterhorn Peak (Colorado), do you need ropes and helmets to climb this one, or is it just scrambling? About how many nights and days does it take to climb?
Wetterhorn is rated Class 3, which means it can be scrambled safely without ropes as long as the climber is confident and does not mind serious heights. Most folks climb the mountain without ropes because it would be hard to place protection on the route anyway, and there's plenty of holds and wide ledges to work with. Most people climb Wetterhorn in one day as a day hike, but camping in the area makes the experience very special because Wetterhorn is in a beautiful area. I've done it both ways a number of times and either way is great. I've climbed Wrtterhorn ten times and it's one of my favorite mountains. It's great fun and it has an awesome view. Let me know how it goes if you climb the mountain, and good luck in your mountain climbing endeavors!
We are going to Colorado, and i was very interested in this mountain. You did a really great job on the page!
I know for sure now that i will climb this one, sounds fun!
Good luck to you too!
Job on the changes and edits, Mike! Page looks great!
Great work in adopting the Wetterhorn, what a choice peak! Love the history and am looking forward to climbing it again!
Thanks for the fantastic and thorough post. The photos are wonderful and even surreal. I want to make this climb!!! Got to round up by hiking buds. Thanks!
