JustDSMThe Return  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 5, 2014


Slept in the bed of my pickup and faced 50mph winds and sub-freezing temps that night, and awoke to a light freezing mist slowly soaking my bag. Cool and breezy conditions during the climb. Wonderful views and great companionship with my two friends who accompanied me. Sure wish I could have brought my pooch!

Moogie737Wind-blown cloudy summit  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 15, 2013


Weather down at the Pine Springs CG was breezy but nice with clear skies. Mother Nature had other plans for the top. It took me 1+50 to reach the top and by then everything was topsy turvy: 20-25 mph winds from the SW, viz 1/4 mile and brrrr. But the hike was overall a nice experience.

Awesome trip and a beautiful day hike. This was the 35th anniversary reunion of some of my college outing club buddies. Perfect weather and great views. Busy trail on the holiday weekend. Thanks to Linda, Fernando, Paul, Tom, and Debbie for a great weekend! Camped in the "RV" part under a pickup cap because the tent camping was completely full. That worked out just fine. #36 state highpoint for me!

I've climbed this peak several time as well as the nearby El Capitan and I have enjoyed it every time I surprised a bunch of Barbary Sheep near the summit last time I climbed it.

Who said Texas doesn't have high peaks? Guadalupe packs a punch, and rises high from the valley below. We had great weather, though I got sunburned. Oh well, success on State HP #24. Our 4th HP out of 6 on this trip!

A friend decided we would hike this peak on his birthday, and it was a fun time. Met two guys that were on a 13-state HP trip, several people from Midland/Odessa area, and the Lubbock-Cooper HS football team.

Nice day. Overcast on the way up that kept us cool. Then the sun came out for some nice pics at the top, but a somewhat warm hike down.

Strolled up from the Pine Springs Campground at 5:15 am. Had the trail and the peak to myself, arriving in just under 2 hours. The sky was clear in all directions. After 45 minutes on the peak, I wandered over to El Capitan and signed the log book (even though it didn't feel like the log book was at the high point). It took an hour to go from Guad Peak to El Cap.

Date Climbed: Jan 23, 2012


I scrambled off-trail near El Capitan up a ridge until an eventual meeting with the trail to Guadalupe Peak. Definitely a blast. These mountains are wonderful to hike, even in the wind.

WOLFrisingMy first Summit  Sucess!



Climbed with my aunt, uncle and cousin the first time at ten years old, and then again as an adult at 26. My first peak, appropriately in my home state. Started a life time love affair, just took a while to kick in.

HOT! Brought 6 bottles of water and if a storm hadn't moved in it wouldn't have been enough. Ran into a strange, scary, dirty man at the trailhead, turns out the rangers had just sent out a party looking for him as he was mentally handicapped and had wandered away from his campsite. Have to admit, it was frightening for two female hikers alone on the trail.

Great way to get introduced to hiking and highpoints..especially since its my native state. Great view from atop. Strong, chilly wind hit around the 2nd big bluff. Other than that a great sunny day and experience.

Easier trail than I thought, made good time to the top. Go fairly early -- the peak gets crowded, at least during spring break. The views in any direction are worthwhile.
