Fun Climb  Sucess!

I came in from the Silver Pick TH (back when it was open) and did the hike to Wilson Pk. It turned out to be a great day of scrambling with perfect weather and uncrowded trails.

Re: Fun Climb

Hey James, I had no idea you were an SP member! Good to see you around here. I looked for your summit log entry for Granite Peak to no avail, and I'm sure there are many more that you could sign. Would like to see the list! Have a great 2007! -Bob

lightening  Sucess!

Used the typical route from Navajo Basin. I found the basin to be rather dreary with big fields of chip rock. Got in a heck of a thunderstorm on the summit. Did an extremely fast descent down a gully on the west side rather than going back down the southwest ridge.

navajo basin  Sucess!

Climbed Wilson Pk from our camp at Navajo Lake. The weather was iffy, but there was no electricity. Wilson Pk is an enjoyable climb. The class 3 crux gully was reasonably stable for San Juan rock. Did Mt Wilson later in the day.

Through Navajo Basin  Sucess!

Climbed through Navajo Basin up to Rock of Ages Mine. Hiked over the ridge. If I did it again, I would walk around the initial ridge and gradually gain the ridge. False summit city! Good climb.

From Mt. Wilson  Sucess!

Traversed talus high in Navajo Basin below Gladstone to the Gladstone-Wilson Peak saddle and joined the standard route there. Started w/ El Diente from Navajo Basin, traversed to Mt. Wilson, then traversed in talus below Gladstone up to Gladstone-Wilson Peak saddle and then on to Wilson Peak. Descended and left camp. 15 hr day camp to TH

Wilson Peak from SilverPick  Sucess!

Climbed wilson my senior year of high school with family and friends. A great class 3 climb from the saddle to the summit, solid rock, plenty of exposure. My favorite so far.

Route Climbed: NW Ridge Date Climbed: 5 September  Sucess!

Attempted this with Mark (Pellucid Wombat). Bizarre weather had deposited a layer of powder over everything a day before, making for shitty conditions (but beautiful views!)- snow with no measurable consistancy (a few inches to 2 ft thick) over terrible rock (at times basically near-vertical scree) does not make for ideal climbing.



Made it to 13,600' (perhaps having surpassed the route's crux- steep wall on opposite side of the prominent notch), but still had an appreciable way to go, and it was getting late (going back down that after the snow had started to harden up would have been bad!), so decided to admit defeat & try again another day.



A challenging, steep mountain composed of substandard rock, with exceptional views- it'll be exciting (again)!

6.25.’12, w/ Faith, via new Rock of Ages Trail (#429). New trail (props to the Forest Service!) made it possible to take a trail to circumnavigate piece-of-shit Rusty Nichols’ private property! Well-marked trail to Rock of Ages col. Left TH @ 13.15, following long & late previous day (back @ TH/camp @ 23.30 after LONG day ascending, & then descending Lizard Head). Weather cooperated, though, & trail easy to follow.

Route Climbed: Northwest Ridge Date Climbed: September 5, 2004

I attempted this route over Labor Day weekend with Diggler. A big snowstorm passed through the day before and dumped a lot of extremely light snow in the Rockies (a few inches to a few feet deep on top of the rock). This snow made the loose rock on the route very problematic and dangerous. We turned around at the large notch before the ridge's intersection with a minor ridge.

This place looks awesome with snow cover. When I come back to re-climb the route, I'll have to make sure that it is a snow climb!
