Culebra - Northwest Ridge - Class 2
Red - Northwest Ridge - Class 2
Culebra is actually a pretty cool mountain. Its just the pay to hike factor that leaves a bad taste. That said the folks at Cielo Vista Ranch made it pretty easy to schedule. We climbed both Culebra and Red via Culebra's Northwest Ridge. We covered 6.7 miles and 3800 vertical in 5 hours.
