Diego,

There are no books featuring Cameron Cone that I'm aware of. If I find any I'll be sure to add them.



Thanks for visiting and for your vote.

I reluctantly give 4 stars for all the effort.....but why would anyone want to climb this mountain?

Because we look at it everyday in Colorado Springs - it dominates the skyline along with Pikes Peak - and "Because it's there!"

Having lived in the Springs one year, I thought about this mountain from time to time. My! What a route! But a description as good as yours gets four stars easy. Well written and prepped, with good route photos (your photo software might brighten the rock picture to illustrate the route better). These obscure mountains with tough routes need to be handled with TLC, which you have done very well here.

Thanks, Aaron. For a while now I've been determined to find a way up this mountain. I figured I'd probably fail the first couple attempts without good beta. I had designs on climbing Cheyenne Mountain as well... found a map that had a couple of "faint/historic trails" on it... but found nothing but "Private Property" signs where the trails were marked. For some reason, there's something about seeing these mountains every day that make me really want to climb them :-).



Good advice on brushing up the route photo... I'll give that a shot.

I've seen this peak many times and wondered how to get up there. I'll definitely have to check it out now!

Great page! I very "unreluctantly" give it "4 stars." Looking forward to standing on top of this rock in the spring, 2005.

Hi there! I'm planning on doing Cameron this weekend.

I also hiked up Cameron Cone in the summer of 05 with a friend of mine. Just like everyone else, we had problems coming down! (tore my clothes bushwacking, coming up on cliffs, hiking back up to find the trail, etc) :) My friend had a printout with pictures, and I could have sworn it was from summitpost. However, I don't see anything here.

So, is there a detailed route description somewhere? I know about crossing the river, scrambling up the scree, finding the trail heading west, and Magog and Gog. However, from there, I don't know.

I stayed in Manitou Springs at the old Taoist community, The Stillpoint Foundation that was at the end of Ruxton Ave. I was there for only about a week during the summer of 1974, but it was one of those more "memorable" times I've ever had ... and most of the time I was actually by myself. One day I did get way close to the top of Cameron's Cone and another day, I got up about half way on the Barr Trail. I so enjoyed the area that i've often wondered why I ever came back to the Southeast. One thing, if I hadn't done that, I would never have met the girl who become the best friend/wife I could ask for.

Wow tree9616. I have to say, I really enjoyed reading this. That's quite a story and one to be proud of. Every once in a while, you read snippets like this but not often.
Ever think of returning back to Co. Springs/Manitou for another visit?
