Unnamed 13158  
Condition Updates  
Route: Northwest Ridge via Nellie Creek

Info: Note: we did not summit. The road is easy enough to hike, even from the bottom. The Uncompahgre trail is then easy to follow, and we turned off heading south at an arbitrary point and crossed a couple of boulderfields and some lumpy tundra bumps. There was tons of snow up to knee deep, all of it super sugary and unconsolidated and just awful to walk through. Ultimately we turned around before summiting and went for Point 13,106, which was much drier. Wear boots if you go for this peak.

Info: I combined 13158 with Broken Hill, but it can be easily combined with Uncompahgre as well. Easiest way to climb it is to avoid the towers along the ridge and climb up to the 13158/12932 col from the southwest. From the standard route up Uncompahgre, drop down the ridge to the south to about 12,600' and pass southeast under the towers. The slope up to the col is somewhat steep but grassy. From the col, stay close to the ridge all the way to the summit. The views are worth it. Second pic is from Broken Hill to west.
