Wetterhorn Peak Trip Report (#10961)

Started from Matterhorn Creek, bagged Wetterhorn first, then traversed over to bag Uncompahgre. Descended down Nellie Creek. Long day, but well worth the effort.

FYI, if you want to bag both peaks in a day, don't drop all the way down to 12,000' from Wetterhorn where the two trails meet. Instead, there's a faint trail that cuts across the plain at the base of Wetterhorn at around 12,400'. This will save you at least 400' of climbing and about a half mile in distance.
