Details

Plan is to drive to Gunnison for lunch.  We will then drive to the the Stewart Creek TH and backpack to beaver ponds at roughly 12000' and find a camping spot.  On day 2 we will climb San Luis then descend to 13600' and follow the ridgeline to Baldy Alto 13681' descending back to camp via the first drainage.  Weather permitting we will climb the Northern bowl and Ridge to Organ Mountain and return to camp.  On day 3 we will hike out to the trailhead.



This is an exploratory trip.  All of the routes are described as class I and II.  There is a gully on Organ 13,801' that has rock fall and therefore helmets are mandatory.  



Please note that this will be physically demanding trip with 4500' of vertical on day 2.  Unless you have several 14ers under your belt and can climb at 1500' / hr  it is best to give this trip a miss.



*This is a Bobcat trip.
