Did the Jones Group last weekend. Did UNP13,466 on accident and connected its ridge to American Peak. That ridge was pretty fun but a bit spicy. Probably class 3-4 with areas of very high exposure depending on your exposure tolerance and route finding. From American it was just a standard late summer trek across the scree and talus over to Jones Mountain, Niagara Peak and Crown Mountain. There were a few areas of light scrambling, but easily manageable. Another awesome day solo in the San Juan's.
I'm guessing UNP13,466 isn't considered a countable summit? I don't see it listed in the 13er check list, nor is it in Roach's book as a viable route for the group. If anyone has any more info on this point/summit I'd love to find out more on it and the ridge. Thanks
