Compare 2013 Trek 15 to 2012 Trek 15


If your crew is interested in rock climbing, this “Climbing Trek” will be their first choice! This trek will give you an opportunity to climb at both Dean Cow and Cimarroncito. Your two day stay at Cimarroncito will give you a chance to climb the participant routes, but also give you a “hands on” learning experience and an opportunity to climb several new advanced routes previously not used at Philmont. Start your trek with a cool root beer at the Ponil cantina before spending a day with the Continental Tie and Lumber Company at Pueblano. You will climb spar poles, cut cross ties, and enjoy an evening of music/stories at the logger’s “Company Meeting” campfire. From there, shoot booming .50 caliber black powder rifles at Miranda and use a two day stay at Ute Meadows to climb Baldy Mountain, explore Lucien Maxwell’s Aztec Mine, and visit historic Baldy Town. You will then hike to Head of Dean for initiative games and challenge events that will bring your crew together. Continue your journey to Dean Cow for the first round of rock climbing and an “Anchor Rodeo” to teach/test knot skills. Practice those knots on your way to Harlan where you will learn to reload your own shotgun shells before firing them at our scenic range. Make your way to Devil’s Wash Basin before heading to Cimarroncito for your second day of rock climbing. See if you can make it around “The Wall” before testing your knots again with the Cimarroncito staff. Put those knot skills to use with some advanced instruction on your second day, climbing several new routes near Cimarroncito. Cap off your trek with a tour of Waite Phillips’ Hunting Lodge and a hike to Window Rock where your crew can reflect on their journey together.
