El Diente, which is Spanish for "the tooth," is a point on the ridge west of Mt. Wilson. There is only a 259 foot drop to the lowest point on the ridge, but it has always been considered one of Colorado's 54 fourteeners. The two most common routes are the north slopes from Navajo Basin (best with snow), or the south slopes from Kilpacker Basin. The ridge traverse to Mt. Wilson is considered on of Colorado's four great fourteener traverses.
