Del Campo Peak

Del Campo Peak is the heart of the Mountain Loop highway area with great vistas in all directions including straight down into Gothic Basin. The route is a challenging scramble with what appears from a distance to be significant exposure, but with solid footing and handholds.


Walk road from Barlow Pass for about a mile. Do not cross river. Look for trail on right that leads to Weden Creek Trail. Follow trail up to Foggy Lake 5,200 ft Ascend slopes on north side of lake and then the southeast ridge of Del Campo. Ascend slopes on south side of peak to 6,200 ft to the main gully.  Exit the gully on to the rock slope about 100 vertical feet before the gully tops out.  Ascend the rock slope to the top of the col at about 6,350 ft.  Turn left/west and ascend to the summit.
