Huron Peak Climb


	Northwest Slopes II from South Winfield Trailhead
        Elevation - 14,005ft
        Mountain Range - Sawatch
        Colorado Ranking - 53 


July 31, 2007. Eric, Jason, and I had completed Grays and Toreys the day before and headed to the trailhead of Huron Peak. Huron is barely a 14er standing 14,005ft. However, don't let the #53 ranking fool you, this is a challenging climb with a lot of switch backs and steep elevation gain. Against my better judgement, we started this climb late, at 3:00pm...
