Vermejo Peak  
Condition Updates  
Route: Purgatoire through Culebra
Posted On: 2022-07-11, By: supranihilest
Info: From camp along Purgatoire's west ridge we ran all the way through Culebra and down to the upper, 4WD trailhead (the ranch staff shuttled our vehicle for us - included in the $500 you pay for these peaks). No real surprises on any of the 13ers, just lots of deep saddles with lots of elevation gain for everything. Ascending Red from Vermejo is the worst part of the day, steep, endless, and loose. Don't skip Point 12,754 west of "Alamosito", it's literally the only cool peak of these six and has some fun scrambling on bomber granite. 
Route: Alamosito Creek

Info: If you want to sign the summit register, bring something to help you open it. I guess King Kong closed it last.
