Mt Wilson Route Guide – A 14er With A Fierce Reputation

Mt Wilson and its neighbor El Diente Peak and Wilson Peak are some of the most dangerous peaks in the San Juan range. Many people have been injured or killed due to the significant exposure and rockfall hazards. Wait to conquer the Mt Wilson route until you’ve tackled some easier 14ers and gained some experience. The reward for the risk is an adventurous climb that often involves a mix of snow and rock climbing late into the summer. Take your time on this mountain, and be ready for the risk. Start planning your visit with my Mt Wilson Route Guide.
