Route: Uncompahgre & Wetterhorn (CO)

Colorado, US

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.
