into the hailstorm  Sucess!

sunlight was sunny....windom was not. i climbed up windom for 15-20 minutes in the worst hailstorm i've ever experienced. it wasn't pleasant, but i wasn't turning around unless i heard thunder. once it relented, all was good. it was a tad slippery, but i was never put in an uncomfortable situation.

the summit was surprising!

Thunderstorm on summit  Sucess!

Fortunatelly it was a little on the side so we were able to summit this incredible peak. Great ridge. Nice views.

FINALLY  Sucess!


w/ Dad via standard route.

Left campground (~10,900’) @ 6.03. Hauled ass to Twin Lakes (light sprinkle ~7.30- WTF?!! Trepidation ensued), but then ½ hour break.

After that, fun scrambling! Summited @ 11.31.

WOW- after 21 years (!!!), I’m…done!!!! A very weird idea, feeling, & concept! On the one hand, WHAT a goal (for me @ least) to have finally completed; on the other hand, all of the former unknowns are now knowns- there are no more CO 14er blanks on the map anymore. What a paradox. Such is life, I guess…

Enjoyed spectacular views of the San Juan backcountry, trying to soak it all in. Finally left @ 12.24. Weather fluctuated between rain & sunny- ah, Colorado! Finally back @ camp @ 17.11.

Enjoyed great freeze-dried food @ BEER before dropping into sleep.

Fun hike  Sucess!

Fun hike with my son, brother and Duchess. We scrambled on the south side, and then found the easy normal trail down. Duchess was leading the way and she got us of the track :)

After Eolus and Sunlight  Sucess!

Did Eolus, waited out a storm for 4 hours, did Sunlight...then Windom. Got to this summit at 7:30 pm and ran down the trail to make camp before dark

Sunlight Creek  Sucess!

Second time up. This time came over from Sunlight Creek on our pack over the Sunlight Spire-Windom saddle. This high saddle is a pretty reasonable way to get from Sunlight Creek to Chicago Basin, but its a lot of tedious talus hopping with a heavy pack. In any case, it provides a nice alternative access to the crowds in Chicago Basin and allows you to combine a 14er trip with Jagged.

Another amazing summit  Sucess!

With views unlike other summits in Colorado. Jagged peak front and center with a sweep of the entire San Juan range in the background.

Fun!  Sucess!

Alot more fun than I thought. Near the top, the scrambling was great, along with a beautiful summit and views.

Left Chicago basin early to beat the storms but turned out to be a good day weather wise.
