UN 13,033 (formerly UN 13026) is a fairly remote, relatively easy Class 2 summit located in the heart of the Hunter-Fryingpan Wilderness. This summit, along with UN 13,014, can be accessed from the north via several miles of dirt road, 4WD driving, that begins east of Ruedi Reservoir. Our suggested route utilizes the Lost Man Reservoir/Creek Trail that begins from the Independence Pass Road east of Aspen. This trail takes hikers over South Fork Pass. While the two summits could be climbed in a single long, day, the overall mileage suggests a relatively short backpack to the vicinity of South Fork Pass to set up a base for not only climbing these two summits, but also 3-4 of the Williams Mountain summits. The Lost Man Creek Trailhead is accessible to any passenger vehicle. There is a NF campground located right across the road from the trailhead. Lidar increased elevation by 7 feet.
