mountainzen107Hourglass Couloir  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 16, 2008


Amazing. This was my first couloir. I liked how it kept getting more steep towards the end, until your at almost 60 degrees at the top. When i popped up off that, all the tourists were taking my picture and pointing, it was hilarious. Beautiful day for a snow climb. not the best approach though.

This was my first hiking trip to the Rockies, and my first summit. We wanted to go up to Hallet, but weather was coming in so we headed down.

dswinkMy first big mountain  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 13, 2006


Flattop was my first "big" mountain climb. I was so elated to make it to the top.
I returned 4/23/2007 to go up the Dragon's Tail Couloir.

This was my second visit to Flattop. This time I decided to take a "backdoor" up the Scottish / No name Couloir on the south side. This was my first couloir climb, so I confess to being totally exhausted by the time I reached the top. I skipped the last 25 vertical feet or so to the summit. Why? Dunno. I was pooped, it was cold, and I had already put my feet on the summit years ago. (Man, I get lazy as I age.) Glissaded down "Banana Shutes" and shuffled on back to the truck.

Ejnar Fjerdingstad

A fairly uncomplicated hike, except that we had our two children of 4½ and 2½ years with us (their first climb). The oldest, our son, did very well both up and down. Our daughter kept complaining about "all the stones", and to get her to the top I had to carry her the last 15 minutes, and promise to carry her all the way down. Since she weighed 30 pounds, I got quite tired in the arms! We lowed the view from the top, very nice scenery.

Summited after ascent of east face of Notchtop. This was the easiest way down in 60mph wind after sunset. Not a bad walk except the friggin' ice on the trail all the way down. Indian summer makes for great ice climbing, but horrible trails. With Jim C (mountainlord)

Came from sea level the day before and was going to hike along the divide to Andrew's glacier but felt a little sick on top so we turned back.

ferdinandverboomGreat hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 31, 2006


It had snowed a lot and my brother and I went up without snowshoes, but we made it, we were the only people on the trail that day. The trail wasn't actually really there either. It was very windy at the summit.

Planned on Hallett too, but clouds started coming in late mornnig. Had a nice hail/rain storm banging on us for the last half-mile. Great day, though.
