This mountain barely qualifies as a 14er – at 14,001 feet above sea level – but that won’t matter when you’re standing on top, above the clouds amid the splendor of the San Juan Mountains. It’s usually climbed in conjunction with its higher and more colorful neighbor Redcloud Peak, though there are other, less popular (think steep scree fields) routes.
Recommended season(s): Summer to early fall
