Monsoon weather held off long enough for us to enjoy this one.
Climbed the little remaining snow on the N. face to the W. ridge. Cool summit! I cannot verify this, but apparently, my partner claims a very large block on the summit shifted when we sat on it...Don't put too much faith in the rock up there!
We got to the saddle at 11:20 when clouds were building. I wanted to snag it so I nearly ran up and got to the summit 15 minutes later!
Climbed the snow covered west ridge to the summit.
A fun talus-hopping route. Windom may not be the most exciting peak in the area, but it is a great spot to view and contemplate C-Basin and the environs.
Was steeper than it looked from below, but made for fun scrambling! Storms were going great guns early in the morning, so didn't have much time to enjoy the top at 10 am.
nuttylos (carlos) and i summited and i love the Chicago Basin one of the best ares in Coloardo some killer views
Windom was summit #5 on the day for me as the weather held, so the scrambling on the west ridge really wore me out.
Beautiful views and a great summit.
Went up from Sunlight. Weather rolling in as soon as we summited so we couldn't enjoy the views
too fast to enjoy...
Good snow, could not pass it up.
Climbed it with my dad at age 4.
If I were a goat, perhaps I would live there.
Up the West ridge, then down the north and over to Sunlight.
After this one, I climbed Sunlight, and then hiked out all the way to Purgatory, making at 20-mile day.
Great trip with old friends. Outstanding views from summit. Yes, four people can huddle under a makeshift poncho tarp in a hail storm, cook, and eat dinner.
