|Date:||Wednesday, February 17, 2010|
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Elevation:||14064 ft / 4286 m|
Ascent Trip ReportClimbed exactly middle of the south slope from camp just below Lower South Colony Lake. Section of 100' class 3-4 on rock bend in hidden, left lying slaby gully. Above endless talus to west summit.
My last 14ers ABC (All But Culebra) in 12 months in my quest of 52 peaks for 52 years old man.
Very unusual to meet somebody in the middle of the winter on exact summit. Two ski experts, one of them already skied all 14ers. Congrats.
