Attention site users! On December 31, 2020, the company whose platform and hosting service we have used to build this site will discontinue their service. That means NO MORE SITE unless immediate action is taken. The ultimate goal will be to have the site rebuilt in another platform. In the interim, we plan to transfer this site to a "static" page where all the information will still be available but we will be unable to administrate the site. The ultimate goal will cost tens of thousands of dollars in professional costs. The immediate "static" solution will still cost several thousand. We are on retirement/SS income and do not have the personal resources to build this site again. To keep this site going, we may have to monetize it in some way such as required membership or allow advertising and you know how annoying that can be. So, if you have survived Covid-19 and still have steady income, please consider a donation in any amount now. For past contributors, thank you so much for doing so!
UN 13,768 is another high point along Holy Cross Ridge, south of the Mount of the Holy Cross 14er. Our suggested route utilizes the trail to Mount of the Holy Cross, then follows the ridge south, first passing over Holy Cross Ridge (13,831) before continuing on to UN 13,768. The two 13ers have therefore been sequenced together for what makes a very long day mileage and elevation wise. The Half Moon Pass trailhead can be reached by most passenger vehicles. It is probably easiest to complete this route by going to the summit of Mount of the Holy Cross rather than attempting to do a contouring traverse.
