Most beautiful: I vote for Willow Lake. The trek up to the lake is amazingly beautiful, even on a cloudy day or during a rain storm. We got caught in a pretty bad hail/rain/lightning storm during our trip there last summer. The intense weather caused instant waterfalls to cascade off the cliffs. Fortunately, we were able to take shelter in our tents!



Smallest summit: Lincoln?

The Sunlight summit block is supposed to be the smallest. Of the peaks i've actually climbed, i'd say Wetterhorn has the smallest summit.

Sneffels has a fairly small summit, also.

Sangre de Cristo: Lindsey for the approach and Humbolt for the summit view. Honorable mention for approach and for summit views would be Kit Carson.

Sawatch: Harvard for the approach and Yale for the summit view. Holy Cross may well be the best for the approach but I haven't done it yet.
