Thanks to Kirk Mallory for adding this peak.
Windom Peak is the easiest fourteener to climb in the Needle Mountains. It most easily approached from Chicago Basin, which is reached by taking the Durango & Silverton Narrow Guage Railroad to Needleton. The standard route is the West Ridge, which requires a little bit of scrambling near the top. There are great views from the top.
