Uncompahgre & Wetterhorn are two 14ers in the San Juan Range. They are quite remote, and climbing them together is generally considered a long day - maybe 18 miles with 6400' of elevation gain.
We include here as a Variation Bill Briggs' "Lake City High Five": Starting at the Uncompahgre trailhead (Nellie Creek) and finishing at the Handies trailhead (Grizzly Gulch), ascend Uncompahgre, Wetterhorn, Redcloud, Sunshine, and Handies Peaks. Open route.
Editor's Note: Many Colorado 14ers should not be considered “backcountry” where you go anywhere you want; their popularity can create a plethora of braided social paths that lasts for decades in the fragile tundra. So if there is a trail, please stay on it. Hundreds of volunteers with the Fourteeners Initiative work hard to protect our mountain environment.
