Ascent Trip Reportfrom broken hand pass Craig and I ascended the south slopes route on Crestone Needle. We passed some familiar parties who had completed the traverse whom we had seen on the summit of Crestone Peak earlier in the day. amazingly fun climbing in an unreal setting going up the needle. the weather had cleared from the cloud bank that scared us off the traverse and once we got to the summit we could see how far we had made it on the traverse, we were dead on route! oh well, still an amazing all day workout in an amazing place with 2 of the best 14ers summited. Too bad mike was too exhausted to come with us up the needle. We had the summit to ourselves and worked our way back down to camp by 4 pm. in need of a burger and beer we hiked out and ate like kings at the bar while watching the broncos game. amazing day and trip
