“This run offers no warm-up. It starts out steep and holds strong until the summit, but every step is worth it.”— Caroline Cordsen
The peak may seem unattainable from below, but a well-defined route threads the terrain to find an exposed summit with relative ease.
At the top, wide-reaching views open up to Ridgway in the west; Chimney Rock and Silver Jack Reservoir to the northeast; the Uncompahgre Valley to the northwest; and directly to the southeast lays the West Fork Cimarron River Valley, trapped by the high peaks of Dunsinane Mountain, Precipice Peak, Redcliffe, and Coxcomb.
Honing in on a stubborn hoodoo, the trail wraps towards the eastern face of Courthouse Mountain, then swings wide, where Redcliff and Coxcomb Peaks slide into view on the far side of the West Fork Cimarron River Valley.
With the trail growing steeper still, traction becomes near impossible on the sheer, grainy slopes that lead into a boulder field. But despite a seemingly technical climb from below, a cairned route threads an easy path between the roadblocks to find access to the grassy slopes just below the summit. The final scramble through alpine tundra finds an exposed summit ridge.
