UN 13555 > Huerfano Peak: Reiterating that the first 1/3 of the climb from UN 13555 to Point 13470 seemed Class 2+/Easy Class 3. Point 13470 is the brown band of rocks running through the ridge (image #3). From point 13470 to Huerfano the ridge was Class 3 (possibly Class 4 if you don't take the easiest line). There is a âStretch of Faith' about halfway through that didn't seem to have a down climb bypass (image #1 & #2). Just whip out your Gumby legs and split âem down the middle to cross this crack in the ridge (easier for us 6 foot folks). The entire traverse took me about 1h 45m. Comments on the UN 13555 registry reported 2 hours to make the traverse from Huerfano Peak.
