ktiffany22Memorial Hike for Linda  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 20, 2008

ktiffany22

What an amazing set of rocks up there! After losing Linda on 14er Crestone Needle, we hiked Bison as a memorial dedication to her. There were about 15 of us. It was sweet to remember and converse about her. She was a great mountaineer- rest in peace dear sweet Linda!

The summit log was almost a year old and didn't have very many entries at all.

The rock formations were great!

Beautiful day amongst beautiful rock formations. Second time up Bison, last time up was last October. I think this could become a regular peak for me to do.

Great morning on Bison! Tried to make McCurdy as well but weather didn't cooperate.

#2 on Bison for me. This time I went with a partner. Slowpoke and I had some fun after it started snowing on us!

What an awesome mountain. The rock formations above treeline are just spectular. Had the summit to myself, although I did see other people on the trail. Beautiful clear, sunny day, but a bit chilly (it was 27 degrees when I started) and a little breezy, but I still spent at least an half hour at the summit taking in this mountain's beauty.

I definitely plan on returning.

Started snowing once we hit the area above Bison Pass. Made for an interesting day.

On a crisp clear day I had the mountain to myself. A one of a kind summit that makes you want to meander around on a good day.

There wasn't as much snow as expected on this south facing trail, so we made good time until we got to the saddle. It wasn't as windscoured as expected above treeline, but we still had enough left in the tank to head over to McCurdy. Brutal combo hike with snow, but the views more than made up for it!

Practically a summer day. It was downright hot for early Nov! Very cool summit.

I came up from the Ute Creek TH. A fairly long approach didn't leave much time at the top before the weather moved in. I should have started earlier. Finding a path through the maze of rock made this hike very interesting and definitely one of my favorite places in Colorado. Truly a unique place!

Solo overnight trip. Saw 2 people on the trail Sat and about 4 on Sunday. What a neat bizarre landscape. My first use of my new bivy sac and there were tons of great sheltered spots in the rocks above treeline. Set up camp, ate dinner and summited Bison. Watched a fantastic sunset and saw the lights of Denver come into view. Got up the next morning, summitted McCurdy, and packed out. If you want to try camping above treeline, this is a good area to do it. However, water is scarce up there. Had to melt snow. I'll be back again I'm sure.

Got caught in a thunderstorm right as we were summitting at noon. Very scary. We were only at the summit for about 60 seconds. Beautiful summit area, just wish I could have seen more. Will be back.

The summit ridge is unbelievable! I could spend hours up there on a warmer day playing on the rock formations--looks like a great place to bring my sons back to play when they're a little older.

Climbed with Chiefer, Eric Coffman. Our attempt the first night was unsuccessful and after about a 4 mile roundtrip mistake, we camped at the trailhead and made it up the next morning. Great views. I remembering seeing the world's smallest columbine on that hike (maybe the circumference of a dime).

A great long hike into one of our great wilderness areas. The summit block can be gained a couple of ways, I found: The east face being a nice Class III scramble of 15' on solid rock, but a gap in the block to the NW allows easier access. I descended to the northwest, bushwhacking below timberline through a not too dense forest, until I reached the Indian Creek Trail again below 11,000', near the marshes. This reduced some distance rather than backtracking to the southwest.
