Wetterhorn Peak


San Juan Mountain Range

Trailhead:  Matterhorn Creek 10,400 feet

Route: Southeast Ridge II

Left the trailhead at 7:35 AM.  The trail on the approach was one of the nicest I have found thus far.  Very few rocks on the trail, a nice comfortable dirt to walk on!

This route gets increasingly difficult as you near the summit.  It gets fairly steep with decent exposure.  All of the rocks and holds seem pretty solid.  I did not take a lot of pictures through this section as I was trying not to fall off the mountain.



Swinging at Umcompahgre Peak in the distance.
