Beautiful day! Did Wetterhorn first then Uncompahgre. Drove to 10,300 for the Matterhorn TH where the road splits for the last time and parked. Easy enough to get there. No snow on the trail all day. Staying on solid rock every chance you get is excellent. There is some fun scrambling near the top. Trail over to Uncompahgre is easy to follow and kinda nice. Minimal water along the way, though. There is one black hill with some slippery scree you'll have to go up (and down) right before joining the main Unc trail. The trail going up and down Unc is pretty straightforward and in fine condition.

Times: 2.5 hr to Wetterhorn summit (solid pace with some pictures), 1 hr chill, 3.5 hr to Uncompahgre summit (good pace, few pictures), 1hr chill, 2:15 back to the car (going fast, limited stops). Total: 10:15 with 2 hrs at the summits.
