Gorgeous colors, lovely backpack. A little snow on the north side as we descended before the final ascent made this quite exciting!
Packed into Navajo Lake and set-up base camp afterward started up the trail at 12:05PM up through Navajo Basin and on up to the summit at 3:15PM. Stayed nearly 30mins then back down to base camp at 6:00PM. My 53rd 14er on this gorgeous day.......Sweet!
alone, slept in a bivy by Navajo lake, and summited early am. Wonderful day, new snow near the top, fun scramble.
Camped at 12k ft in Navajo Basin and summited early with Brian. Clouds rolled in not too long after.
Beautiful weekend in the San Jauns. It was sunny the whole weekend, perfect for climbing fourteeners. This is an awesome hike, the SW ridge is a blast. I definitely want to come back here.
The basin is very nice, and the climbing gets fun after the Rock of Ages saddle - especially the crux from the false summit.
Pleasure and a joy, love the route and the setting
Climbed possible FA??? with Kelly Ryan. I made a page for this route; check it out and let me know if anyone has done this before.
Really fun mountain!!
Fresh hail coated all the holds and ledges for the crux. Loose holds were no fun, but made it up and down OK.
This mountain pushed me - beyond my comfort zone as I ascended the crux of the climb to the summit. Climbed with fellow SPer, Alan Arnette. Perfect day - no clouds, blue sky, warm temps, and no snow. Even saw a crowd of 8 folks help celebrate one guy's successful climbing the 54 or 58 (depends on your point of view) Colorado 14ers - complete with Coors beer and champagne!
FUN! But a little intense on the crux being solo and all...majot pucker factor given the dangerous circumstances!! LOL,
Backpacked into Navajo Lake and then climbed Mount Wilson and Wilson Peak the next day. Nice scramble to the summit.
Climbed up Wilson Pk from Navajo Lake. Plane wreckage still on top.
Got off route a little past the Gladstone saddle and had to scramble up super-choss back to the trail. Awesome scrambling just below the summit!
We started "too early" so waited for sunlight at the saddle beyond the rock of ages saddle. We dropped the hundred feet to avoid the class 3- had to cross some snow and the ended up on a nasty pile of "choss" (we chose a better route on the way back). Nice scramble at the end with a rewarding summit- #49!
Ninth of 14 14ers in 11 days. Our original plan was to do the entire Wilson group in a day, but storms pushed the Peak to its own day. Summited at sunrise after a fun bit of scrambling.
Took the Woods Lake trailhead to Navajo Lake. Wilson Peak was my #58/final Colorado 14er, and it was a great mountain to finish on!
Accessed through silver pick basin and rock of ages saddle. This was a great climb. I lost an axe I've only used twice if anyone finds it give me a yell. Will gladly reward.
Woods Lake approach. Fun scramble, although eerie seeing the plane wreckage up there.
