chicagotransplantMorraine Park  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 27, 2014


Climbed up from Morraine Park visitor center on my way out from some Glacier Gorge area summits. Nice little side trip and a great aerial viewpoint to see all the tourist parked along the road to peep the elk in Morraine Park.

rkymtnFrom Bear Lake Road  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 16, 2013


My wife and I parked on the southern edge of Moraine Park using the pullout on Bear Lake Road near the bridge over the Big Thompson River. There's a well established trail on the west side of the road the parallels the river and crosses under the road at the bridge. The hike is fairly straight forward, though there are multiple braided trails up the mountain. Nice views from the top.

The wife and I climbed on a cold, blustery day. Was a great hike though. Drove over after a climb of Deer Mountain, and then on to Ed's Cantina where we...well I...had several beers and the wife drove home. What a day.

Turns out the true summit is the eastern point, as I found out on my second time climbing from Co 66

bus114Non-athlete's comment  Sucess!
I'd like to give a review from someone who is not a climber, not a big hiker, not an athlete -- just a 50-year old in moderate condition. I laugh at the "Easy" rating for this climb. "Easy" is a relative term; since there's no rock-climbing or mountaineering skill involved, it's easy for a climber. Also easy for someone in very good physical condition. But consider this: It's a 900-foot climb, with some pretty steep sections. Like climbing an 80-story building, but in relatively thin mountain air. And on sometimes slippery dirt and rocks rather than steps. So that requires some effort from a non-athletic person like me. Still, I made it to the top okay, and in a pretty short period of time -- and it was certainly worth it. Beautiful views in all directions early in the morning when I was there.

I would have to say that it is "easy" compared to most of the other peak ascents in RMNP. :-) But for the short distance required to climb the peak, it is definitely on the steep and slippery side.

Date Climbed: Mar 8, 2009


Hiked the Northwest Slope from the Moraine Park Museum. I enjoyed the nice, flat, summit block. Great views of Moraine Park and the surrounding peaks.

argothorUp the western slope, down the southern slope  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 10, 2007


On a long day of hiking, 17 miles altogether, my first destination was Eagle Cliff Mtn. Headed up the west slope just behind the Moraine Basin Museum, picking my way around some rocky cliffs, and then headed down the much easier southern slope, along a faint, but distinct trail. Nice views of the Continental Divide, but with the much larger Deer Mountain in the way views to the north of the Mummy Range was somewhat blocked. Nice hike.

Date Climbed: May 28, 2003


In Estes Park for a conference, a group of us went up Eagle Cliff mountain. Got hailed on for a few minutes, but very nice views of the Park from the mountain.

Date is somewhat of a guess. When I was 16, I arrived with my folks to stay at a cabin just below Eagle Cliff Peak. My friend Tony and I climbed the peak that afternoon. The next day we went up the Sisters, then the next, up Longs.

When I live in Estes and worked at the YMCA I used Eagle Cliff as a quick before work outing. Must have hiked/ran it about 10 times.
