Joe_ParvisTraining/Suffering on Bear Peak  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 4, 2006


Another training hike on Bear Peak. This time from Shanahan TH via North Fork Shanahan Trail, up Fern Canyon and then to summit. Tried to move fast for training, 2 hrs 30 mins round trip. Suffered because not in best shape and saw others running where I could only fast hike. Boulder is a humbling environment in which to train.

I love this hike - Fern and Shadow canyons are great training hikes, and Bear Canyon is a great wildflower hike.

Great hike, beautiful weather, some snow on the trails. Scrambling at the end is great to get up to the pointy summit.

I was 5 at the time. The exposure at the top scared me quite a bit. Been hooked on climbing ever since. Have repeated Bear from Fern, Shawdow and Green Bear many time since. This is the second summit in the Boulder 5-peak traverse.

Great hike to train, burn off steam, or enjoy with friends / children. Strenuous enough to get tired but short enough to do in a few hours. On this day the temps were cool and there were stiff winds on the ridge. My hydration pack hose kept trying to freeze. The trail was icy in patches and treking poles were a big help.

Today was a beautiful day for a hike. I took the Bear Canyon / West Ridge both up and down. This route was slightly longer (in miles) than I expected for an afternoon hike. It took me an hour and thirty-two minutes to summit from NCAR.

Great summit and a steep hike close to town. Used this as a training hike, so the cool summit was a bonus.

I have climbed Bear probably 4 or 5 times. This is a fairly easy hike, with great views of the indian peaks as well as boulder.

For the few months I lived in Boulder, I climbed this peak about once a week just for fun. I lived a few blocks from the trailhead at the end of Baseline. From there it's about a 5 mile R/T and maybe 3,000 elevation gain. Hot and dry in the summer, subzero in the worst parts of December/January. Beautiful under all circumstances. If you're ever in Boulder and have a few hours free, walk this trail. You won't regret it.

The weather reports predicted rain, but it was a beautiful day, though there were some clouds building over the Indian Peaks to the west. I had heard that Bear was pretty tough for such a "low" peak, and I was not disappointed. Upon entering Shadow Canyon, the trail is relentlessly steep and rocky all the way to the pass. I shared the summit with a group of Mormon missionaries. There's not a whole lot of room on the summit. After climbing Bear, I headed on over to South Boulder Peak.
