2013-07-21  Route: South Slopes
Info: Absolutely no snow, and the creek crossings were all easy to manage without getting your feet wet. This is a really pretty route, too.

2012-08-31  Route: South Slopes
Info: The directions in Roach‘s 13ers book are spot on. The "crux" is knowing where to make the second stream crossing, which is the first crossing after the signboard. I counted ~400 paces from the signboard to the crossing, which entailed going over several blowdowns. From this crossing it was another ~400 paces to the third crossing, which is the easiest of the three. From there the La Garita Stock Driveway was easy to follow. It is possible to make the second crossing another ~200 paces beyond where Roach says to, but this requires a bit of bushwhacking.

2012-05-28  Route: La Garita Trail
Info: Summer conditions. La Garita Trail was faint in places, and shortly after the trail sign, the trail stays on the same side of the creek, but crosses a substantial amount of deadfall. Above treeline, snow is minimal and entirely avoidable The mine road closures are still in effect--please see Furthermore‘s TR for excellent directions on how to bypass the closure to reach the start of the climb.
