Uncompaghre Peak is a Class 2, 14,309 foot mountain located in the Uncompaghre Wilderness in the San Juan Mountains. In this video, I solo hike Uncompaghre Peak via the South Ridge. I would rate this as an intermediate hike in the Spring and beginner-friendly in the Summer due to the forgiving grade of Class 2. This hike began around 10,400 feet and ended at 14,309 feet, with almost 4,000 feet of vertical elevation gain over the course of 12 miles round trip. During summer conditions, this hike is 3,000 feet of vertical elevation gain over 7.50 miles round trip. I almost fall into a stream (0:47), I had to climb a cornice (5:22), and I did some optional Class 3 scrambling to gain the upper slopes (9:58). Overall, it was a very beautiful hike to the summit in a very scenic region of Colorado. If you enjoyed this video, make sure to hit that subscribe button!
