Wonderful views of Rampart Range Date Climbed: May 27, 1979
My one and only hike with my brother who now lives in Australia. I was new to Colorado and had tried to climb it with my wife a few weekends before and aborted because of lack of knowledge that there was a trail and stairs up the rocky portions.
Beautiful panoramic views Date Climbed: May 24, 2008
Nice hike through some beautiful rock formations, to a summit that offers up views of the plains to the east, Pikes Peak and the Sangre de Cristo mountains to the south, Thunder Butte and the Hayman fire burn area to the southwest, the Tarryall, Kenosha Mountains to the west and way to the north - Longs Peak. Awesome views from such a low elevation summit.
