Cielo Vista Northern 12s/13ers Trip - June 26th

Post by Mtnman200 » Mon Apr 19, 2021 12:29 pm

I received the email below from Mark Schmalz today regarding a possible trip to Cielo Vista Ranch to climb some of the northern 12s and 13ers on June 26:

South of trailhead, via an out-and back hike
Beaubien Pk (13,184’)
Francisco Pk (13,135’)
Lomo Liso Mtn (13,128’)
12,810
12,686

North of the trailhead, via an out-and-back hike
12,794
12,170

I’m not interested in the 12s but am hoping someone might want to do a one-way ridge run from Whiskey Pass over Beaubien, Francisco, Lomo Liso, Miranda, 13565, 13229, and Culebra to the 4WD trailhead. Otina wrote a trip report for the northern 13ers (go to https://www.14ers.com/php14ers/triprepo ... trip=17960 and scroll down about halfway) if you want to see photos and a description of the route. The group camped at a nice area at about 11,500' on the Whiskey Pass Road.

Mark’s email: “I will be reaching out to the ranch in the next few days. I know some of you on this thread are interested in climbing peaks in the Whiskey Pass area. (I will be working on 12ers.) For those of you that are interested, please let me know if the weekend of June 26th works for you. I am pretty open this summer but would like to wait at least until that weekend. I would hate to be turned back by a mud patch. When several of us went with Roger Linfield to the Ranch a couple years ago, we unexpectedly were able to go into the Ranch the evening prior. This aided our climbing considerably. Some of us started at 3:00 A.M. I am going to ask if it is possible to camp near Whiskey Pass so we have nearly 24 hours in the area.

Thanks and please let me know about the June 26 date ASAP.

Mark”

I am definitely interested in the one way ridge run if the price is not too high. Sent you a PM!

Sign me up as well (just for 13ers). I need those to finish the Sangres. Sunday (and Monday if possible) would be best for me

I'd be interested too if it's on a weekend. I think it would be fun to run the ridge from Maxwell to Culebra. Permission from the Bar N I ranch might be needed for this though.

I would be very interested, and willing to pay the fee. I'm already planning on being in the area for a trip I have already planned. Let me know, thanks!
