Hi Matt,

Congrats on summitting all of the peaks in this area! Great job!

Any chance you'll be putting out a TR on Gladstone? This peak makes me nervous and I'd love to hear in detail about your route and the rock conditions, both ascending to the ridge and on the ridge to the summit.

Well, Since I'm leaving for the Weminuche like...now I'll just let you know some more info here.
From Rock of Ages Saddle just descend slightly and contour into the very upper reaches of Navajo Basin and climb the talus (which was pretty loose but managable) to the low spot in the ridge between Wilson Peak and Gladstone. The ridge scramble was actually very solid and fun. Stay on the left side (looking up) if you come to anything more difficult than class 3.
The ridge was very fun. You wouldn't have much trouble at all!
Good luck
