 Huerfano Peak (Un, 13,828) - Southern Slopes  

Climbed Huerfano ( Un. 13,828 ) on Sunday, 18 July, 2010.

First and most importantly . . . no Kit Carson style mosquito swarms, not at the trailhead, not along the Huerfano, not at the higher elevations.

No snow, no route finding issues, no ill behaved mongrels, an easy 6:20 climb, up and back, from the Lily Lake trail head. All but the last mile of the route is on the Lindsey trail, then a mile of class 1, usually with at least a climber's trace, with some class 2 talus hopping thrown in just to keep one awake.

For anyone interested in the usual narrative, here's the link to the Huerfano page on Climbing with Bob.

Some teaser photos, of course . . .

First meadow

I love the view from that first meadow (your last picture)...I think I had that view as my computer background about a year ago. I wasn't able to get Huerfano with Lindsey, so a return will be in the works. Very nice write up, thanks!

I think it rivals the Bells . . .

My wife is not a hiker but I promised a view of the caliber of the Bells. She hiked, I think I delivered. That said, lets not let's not advertise it . . .

Thanks for the thumbs up on the write-up!
