 San Juans 14ers Bonanza 2009 - Day 2 - Uncompahgre Peak   

Climbed Uncompahgre this past Wednesday. We woke up at 5am and drove our rented Jeep from Colorado West over Corkscrew Pass, Hurricane Pass, California Gulch, through Animas Forks, Over Engineer Pass, and to the Nellie Creek Trailhead. We had an unbelievably late start (9:45am), but there wasn't a cloud in the sky so we began. The climb went exactly as expected, I have no exciting stories to tell... BIll's Route Description was 100% perfect, as always... So here are some photos.
