San Luis Peak--July 21, 2014
I met Dan Brooks at the Eddiesville trailhead as he was hiking the Colorado Trail. We hiked 8 miles of it together and camped 1.3 miles from the San Luis Peak summit at 12,600 feet.
Wilson Peak--June 29, 2014
Umcompahgre Peak--June 28, 2014
Handies Peak--June 28, 2014
Matt Walsh and I headed out to attempt four 14ers. Three out of four is not too bad. The trip highlight was a 12:30 am summit of Handies Peak. Our first climb that was in the dark from start to finish.
Redcloud Peak --June 27, 2013
Sunshine Peak--June 27, 2013
Julie and I used Lake City as our base camp to climb these peaks. We had a great day, but the hike was very long and tiring. Smoke from the West Fork Complex fire hung in the air most of the time.
Mount of the Holy Cross--June 24, 2013
I finally climbed the Cross Couloir. I have been thinking about this climb since 1997 when I bought Lou Dawson's Guide to the Fourteeners. The first mountain in the book is Mount of the Holy Cross and I dreamed then of climbing up the cross. Matt Walsh and I did just that on a spectacular day. We descended via the Angelica Couloir on steep, hard snow. We had a great climb for sure.
