Redcloud's first recorded ascent (as many of Colorado's 14ers) was by a member of a survey party. J.D. Spiller of the Wheeler Survey is recognized as the first to climb; he also named the peak "Redcloud," a nod to its distinctive red hue. Redcloud Peak ranks 46th highest among Colorado's 14ers and is considered a moderately difficult climb.
