I sure liked the portion of the trip from Half Moon TH to the summit of Holy Cross, but I stopped having fun on the Halo Ridge. The footing is pretty bad, on loose, often large talus. Fell down a few times when rocks came loose. My 40-lb, two foot tall dog really didn't like contouring on the rocks, and that put a damper on the day; if my baby isn't happy, I'm not happy!

Beautiful flower-filled talus hopping LONG hike! Donned full packs to Halo Ridge shelter where we stayed the night (zero sleep- who can sleep at 13,080 feet?!). Summited the following day- WOW, the "bowl of tears" and views of the Cross were astounding... worth every pain in my legs at the days end! "Descended" the standard route... 14.25 miles roundtrip loop hike.

Hit Angelica in the morning around 7am, snow was still good, even a little hard in the upper shaded region. Topped out with no one in site on a crystal clear day. Then descended the Halo Ridge back over Notch Mt to the Halfmoon TH. Great hike, awesome views, lots of wild flowers on the ridge. Beware the mosquitos.

Great hike, cloud ceiling was about 15K and made things look interesting. Hiked in the first 3 miles in the dark and camped over. Some snow above 13K. One of the best hikes I've done!

Well, it was an exhausting long day. Beautiful area and scenes. Unfortunately the day my partner and I went, it was overcast and snowing. The ascent of N. couloir was really good, bomber snow pack and was certainly steeper near summit. Plenty of picking. Surging winds and snow made descent interesting. 18hrs later, arrived at park entrance and car.

Beautiful mountain, gorgeous surrounding scenery, and a fun hike. Started out around 7 and summitted around 11am. The view of Mt. of the Holy Cross from the top of Half Moon Pass was absolutely stunning. The only downside to this route was having to climb 900 or so vertical feet on the return up Half Moon Pass- it made for very tired legs at the end of the day.

This was my first snow climb and I loved it. I'm totaly hooked on snow routes now. A high camp is recommend for an early start. I did this route solo, and it was a blast. A climbing partner wouldn't be a bad idea. If you and the snow is in good condition it is not that difficult of a route. I plan to do this one again! START EARLY!

My buddy and I took our time to enjoy the outrageous scenery! We camped at Lake Patricia the first night, and then ascended Angelica's Couloir the following morning. A little dicey due to ALOT of rocks falling! Cant wait to do this in the winter!

Hit a rough day physically, but the weather was beautiful. Especially didn't enjoy the loss of elevation during the initial part of the trail which translates to a gain of elevation on the way back. Would love to spend more time in that general wilderness area someday though, just breathtaking.

We had a beautiful day for this one - excellent views from the top. The climb back to the top of the pass on the way out was a bit rough after already summiting.

Beautiful hike! Took the North Ridge route, starting at 7am and returning to the trailhead at 4:30pm. Beware of the 900-somethin' foot elevation gain ON THE WAY BACK. True test of endurance for a one-day climb, but worth every gruelling second.

This was a training hike for our Maroon Bells-Snowmass Wilderness 4-pass loop trip later in the year and MAN was it tough. We hiked over Half Moon Pass and camped, tackling the summit the next morning. We spent another night at East Cross Creek, then hiked out the next morning - this was a challenging summit!
