Climbed with Dustin Kelley and Matt Jamison. Dustin and I summited. Weather made this a sketchy climb.
Wilson Peak, from Navajo Lake. With Paul and Mike G (Almost)
Went to scout it out Friday before trying for 3 14ers Saturday and would up doing the route. Hailstorm and thunder up top after an 11 am start. Plane wreckage. Scrambly but super-short from Rock of Ages saddle.
Just when we were ready to suck it up and use the longer Bilk Basin approach, the FS *finally* re-opened the Silver Pick Basin approach, via the re-routed trail, starting farther west near Elk Creek. The crux climb from the false summit turned out to be harder than I had expected. 14er #49 for me, #48 for Trisha.
Climbed Wilson Peak on a day trip from Navajo Lake TH. Nice scrambling, gorgeous views!

"Close, but no cigar"
Attempted multiple times, once with my Father...highest point attained with Richard S.
Caught some hail on the way up, but overall a great day for a walk.
Cool mountain. Class 3 section did feel a bit more like class 4.
Went down to Telluride for Leah's Imogene Pass run. Did this mountain the morning before her run.
Got Wilson Peak and Mount Wilson with Chris Gerber and Tressa Breindel. Was also planning on El Diente, but got stormed out.
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.
