tjburrApache Peak  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 4, 1985


It was another beautiful day of climbing in the Indian Peaks Wilderness Area. Did a hair-raising glissade down a massive snowfield on the descent. Descended 1,000 vertical feet in less than 2 minutes.

chicagotransplantQueens Way to Navajo  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 28, 2015


Ascended Queens Way with Scot, Colin, Kevin, Sarah, Shawn, Bob and Kate. Then traversed over to Navajo, up its west chimney and then down the airplane gully. Airplane gully was pretty loose in spots and we had a close call, be careful!

CMC training hike for Mount Elbrus. Considering how hot and dry it has been, there was still plenty of snow higher up. The weather was just about perfect: sunny skies and almost no wind (we could have used a gentle breeze, actually. It was pretty warm). There were a few other climbers and skiers on the glacier. Two of our group decided to wait at the top of the Queens Way while the rest of us went to the summit. It was a tough but good day.

Date Climbed: Aug 7, 2010


Passed over the saddle to Navajo in a storm after climbing Fair Glacier on the west side of the divide. We were out of time and didn't tag the summit. Descended via the SE slopes route. SUPER LOOSE!

Later in the season, climbed Niwot Ridge and Navajo with intentions on finally summitting Apache. We could not locate the descent chimney to Dicker's Peck. Descended Airplane Gully instead.

Climbed up airplane gully. Topped out by interesting chimney (4th class?) in stead of standard route. Descended west chimney. Good route but I think harder climbing down than up. Up Apache and down the East Ledges. Was going to attempt Dickers but was waaaaaay too cold/windy. Fun day!

Long day of sustained rock climbing, but we did it. From Shoshoni, Kasparov traverse to Apache, then over to Navajo, then across Niwot Ridge. Ran out of water too. With Ripper333. Awesome.

Had a couple fails for various stupid reasons on two prior attempts. This day we had a great bluebird day up Queen's Way and lots of glissading on the way down. :D

Excellent snow conditions. We were above the clouds in the sun while Denver metro and Boulder were socked in. Gorgeous day.

We did a full carry over of our gear. Camped at Mirror Lake the previous night and started a 5:40 a.m. returned to the Brainard Lake trail head at 7:00p p.m.

We descended via the Isabel glacier's south branch, down climbing the first 100 vertical feet on plastic ice then glissaded to a point just above the turn off from the route.

This route will give you the "full on mountaineering experience"

Date Climbed: Jul 26, 2009


Beautiful day on the Queen's Way. Hard snow was tough on the feet but stable. Because of the snow conditions, the glissade down the Queen's Way was not the best thing that's ever happened - maybe East Ledges descent would have been better?
