Wilson Peak, Chicago Basin, and Noname Basin

Alpamayo Expedition #2 Recap
August 13, 2013
Guide Tip: Become the Best Belayer Ever
August 29, 2013

The last couple weeks have flown by!  Here are some of the highlights…

Shawn, Nick and I climbed Sunlight(14,059′) and Windom(14,082′) in Chicago Basin.

Summit of Wilson Peak

I met Ken, Daniel and Aaron in Telluride to climb Wilson Peak(14,017′).  While waiting in the gas staion parking lot at 4:30am I got to see who was making a mess by knocking over all the trash cans, and going through the contents.  We were surprised to find a 1/2″ of fresh snow on Wilson Peak.  It quickly melted as the sun came up and started heating up the rock.

Lastly Bob and I hiked up Noname Basin to climb Jagged Peak.  We ended up climbing the rarely attempted Peak 6(13,705′) instead.

It was great climbing with all of you!  Its hard not to have fun in the San Juans this time of year.  Hell any time of year is great!
