Packed in evening prior with hubby, hovered under some trees, shivering in a downpour in which lightning started a fire over in Vail. Next day was 13 hrs, hubby not confident on class 2/3 but he made it!

MissHWildflowers everywhere!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 29, 2013


Five hours up on this wonderful summer day. Stopped to take photos of wildlife and wildflowers. One of the prettiest 14ers and mountains I've ever hiked. 3.5 hours down. Bumped into CFI employees maintaining this wonderful trail (keep up the great work!) as well as Mountain Rescue Association (Eagle County) members sent to rescue an injured hiker (hope you're leg is okay, dude!) Popular summit today but not too crowded. Very little snow, almost all avoidable (unless you go up the couloir which some did).

Date Climbed: Aug 24, 2012


3/10/17- spent the last two days snowshoeing through the holy cross wilderness for a winter summit of the mount of the holy cross. 31+ miles/9400' vertical, a tiring solo trip, yet i loved every moment of the adventure and am quite glad i invested the time and effort into this endeavor!

6/21/14- climbed the cross couloir w/mike. cloudy day, so the snow was hard the entire way up even though we didn't get into the couloir until 8am. halo ridge, the knee killer, for the descent picking up two new 13ers en route.

8/24/12- north ridge; i was surprised how quick this route was. clouds rolled in ~10am and i past on halo ridge with 90% chance of t-storms looming. my second to last fourteener

Had wanted this peak for nearly 5 years. The weather wasn't great but the low lying clouds made for some great views!

pacojgarzaLong but satisfying day.  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 21, 2012


Did the Tour de Holy Cross in nice weather. Went up the Halo Ridge and down the Halfmoon Pass route. It was a long day scrambling above 13K. Great views of the Bowl of Tears. It was peak 10 on my 13 day trip.

Nice day following the North Ridge to the summit, then continuing on to the Halo Ridge. Lake below was a beautiful blue. Took a look at Notch Mountain, but weather was rolling in.

cdevenney84Long but cool hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 30, 2012


Drove to the tailhead after work on a Friday, got up the ridge as it was getting dark and then descended into the valley with headlamps on and found a spot to camp. Next time I think I would skip the camping part, as putting on your big pack and getting back up the ridge after doing the 14er is brutal.

5th time up, this time standard up and down as a volunteer ranger patrol for the Forest Service. The CFI trail work in the boulders between 12/13k is looking good!

Long day. Ascended the standard route to the summit, then continued on the additional mile or so to the summit of Holy Cross Ridge. Returned the same way, bypassing the Holy Cross summit on the return.

Remote. A slog back up over half moon pass. Great technical alpine route potential on the Angelica Face. A mountain worth multiple repeats.

Date Climbed: Jun 27, 2006


Great trail with big talus on top. 1,000 feet of gain on the return trip isn't as bad as it's made out to be.

theREALCarpeDMFrom Fancy Creek TH  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 15, 2011


Due to Tigiwon Rd closure, I went in from the south. The road just past Fancy Creek was washed out. Packed into Hunky Dory Lake. Reached east ridge of Pt 13,768, went over to Mt of HC, then back to HC Ridge. Came down to Tuhare Lakes - which was a big mistake! Spent a lot of time looking for a passable way down. Beautiful area! But lots of snow begets lots of rushing water.
