Pigeon, one of the Rockies greatest peaks, stands up in a proud isolated profile west of the main group of its neighbors. When seen down through the Animas River valley from Silverton, or any other spot, even way out south of Durango on the La Plata Highway, it is a sight indeed, rising 5,700 feet from the river. It was first noticed as a climbing objective in 1906 when William Cooper climbed Kendall and reported seeing mountains, "that I must see again and at the earliest opportunity; the whole San Juan country, the Needle Mountains in particular, and first of all, Pigeon Peak." Two years later on July 11th, he and John Hubbard climbed it for the FA. Later, the likes of Albert Ellingwood and Barton Hoag climbed it in 1920 and then the likely 3rd ascent by C.M.C. in 1927.
