Red Conglomerate Peaks South is a striking, magnificent ridgeline summit that sits south of the Continental Divide. It is the highest point in the vicinity so it offers splendid views. This climb is part of a four-peak odyssey that includes Cobble Mountain (9,996 feet), Knob Mountain (9,762 feet), Red Conglomerate Peaks North (10,106 feet) and Red Conglomerate Peaks South (10,250 feet).

Same as for Cobble Mountain. This is the final leg of a four-peak journey.
North Ridge, Class 3
From the 10,060-foot connecting saddle with Red Conglomerate Peaks North, scramble north up the Class 3 ridge crest of Red Conglomerate Peaks South. Stay on the ridge crest to keep this at Class 3. Take care with your footing as the rock quality here is dubious. The summit high point sits back (south of) the first high point. The summit has a modest cairn on top and magnificent views in all directions. The exposure on the south face, southeast face, and northwest face is stunning. The contours on the USGS topo map make this climb look much worse than Class 3 but it’s not.
