Date Climbed: Jan 28, 2006


My first summit of the year. It was storming pretty much everywhere West of Longs Peak but I lucked out and had OK weather. From the summit, I was able to view 11 other peaks that I have climbed within R.M.N.P. The continental divide was draped in stormy clouds.

Excellent easy winter hike with rewarding views. The trail was well packed, so no snowshoes were needed This is a great warmup hike for out of staters looking to climb Longs.

First time I brought an ice axe on a hike. I didn't need it of course, but I felt really tough!

We did this as a "training" hike for Longs the next week. I'm not sure if it worked, but 2 out of 3 of us made it up Longs.

My first hike ever in Colorado. The one that started it all. What would life have been like if not for this?

Very fun hike because my whole family went with me! The elevation can be a bit strenuous for us low-landers, but it's a great workout! Beautiful views of Longs/ The Diamond (wish I was up there), Estes Park, and Lumpy Ridge.

I've Climbed up this, as I recall someone saying once, an extinct volcano, many times. It's a good alternative to Longs peak, Chasam lake and Lily Lake with little people traffic. The path is fairly straight up with little switchbacks. A nice piece for a short day outing.

Gorgeous hike in winter. Slow going straight up Estes Cone instead of switchbacks. Beautiful winter views of Longs & rest of RMNP.

Nice little after work hike...although the trail thins out at times, so just beware.

My fourth or fifth time up, but my nine-year-old son summited with me this time along with a couple of teens who had never climbed a mountain. Photos are available in "Climbing Estes Cone."

Had a beautiful day with great views on top. The snow was for the most part gone except in places along the trail where it was banked.

Two weeks later, I was back up there in a snowstorm with several inches of snow and zero view from the top.

The last .8 miles was a great cardio workout... & it was well worth it! There were some awesome close up views of Longs Peak from the summit!

Fun and rewarding short workout. The trail is snow free. With binos I could see a lone climber descending the Loft route on Longs.
