Ascent Trip Report

¨Menos Alto Pk¨ (13,028) + Alto Pk¨ (13,060) + ¨Mas Alto Pk¨ (13,062) + Gibson Pk from the San Isabel Creek TH. Take 66T from just outside Crestone to reach the TH. 4wd/clearance is needed for the last mile.

The crux of the day lay between Alto and Mas Alto, requiring a steep C3 gully to go through to work around a headwall near the saddle. Continuing on this headwall is low 5th class. Our gully of choice was very steep with minimal footing grass ledges and we employed much butt scooting to go down it while using rocks for hand hold assists. It was much quicker and easier to ascend.
