Windom Peak Route Guide | An Isolated, Spectacular 14er

Windom Peak is one of the Chicago Basin fourteeners in the San Juan range, and one of the only class 2 peaks to climb in this area. Don’t let that rating trick you though. Getting to this mountain involves a multi-day expedition that includes a train trip, backpacking and difficult scrambling. I recommend trying to climb as many of the Chicago Basin peaks as you can once you go through all the effort to reach the area. Plan your ascent of Windom Peak with my Windom Peak route guide below. Safe travels on the trail!
