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!

Hiked in and camped on Sep 9th with my dad and his friend Tom. Great views of the mountain. Clouds covered the peak on the 10th. There was about 3-4 inches of snow on the mountain. No views on the summit when we arived. Spent over an hour on the summit occationally seeing a short distance view. Clouds started to lift as we sescended down. The 11th we hiked out and only I made it to the summit of Notch Mountain. A few inches of snow dusted the mountain making the Cross very clear. Very impressive.
8th 14er.

Climbed Holy Cross as my first 14er. Climbed with my two adult sons. Left our campsite at East Cross Creek at 4:45am. Summited at 9:30am. Sunny, cold and all to ourselves. Amazing!

Great to revisit this area. I climbed it 12 years prior and it brought back many memories.

Great hike, incredible mountain. The only drawback was the bugs. We got eaten alive all the way to 13k'. The clouds built fast, but never made a move on us. A perfect day.

This route requires lots of scrambling but lets you see the cross.

Started up at 4:00AM under mostly cloudy skies, saw only a guy and his dog the entire way up. Reached an empty summit at 8:42 with heavy rising clouds all-around, stayed about 25 mins then back down through rain showers to the TH at 12:42PM. My 25th 14'er on this fine wet day in Colorado. Sweet!!!

Climbed w/chicagotransplant. Pretty mellow couloir in my opinion. A nice alternative when the hordes are heading up the Corss.

With Eric Holle. Great day, good snow, descended Angelica couloir with a slushy glissade. There was a single guy ahead of us who must have taken a good tumble: we found 1 work stinx tele ski, 2 ski poles, and a shovel. Pair behind us brought the ski up and placed it in the summit rocks. Dude must have been a bit wigged-out to not get the gear or wait for us to grab it for him... $700-day ouch!

A late start left us on the trail without lights when it got dark. Fortunately we only had to wait a short while for a full moon. Don't forget to ALWAYS carry a light!

A long day and my cached water I had left on the way in was not there on the way out. Part of a 10 day 18 14,000 ft. summit solo climbing trip.

Long hike in the clouds. Unfortunately no view that day, and I have yet to return to that area. I would like to, to see what it looks like.

Rocky AlpsNorth Ridge Route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 6, 2005

Rocky Alps

Due to some absent-mindedness on my part (going back to the car a mile into the hike to make sure the headlights were turned off & going backwards a shorter distance later on to retrieve my camera which I left on a rock after a photo op) I made an already long hike (5,500 ft. elevation gain) into an even longer one (6,500 ft. elevation gain). The views of the peak from Halfmoon Pass were absolutely spectacular though, and the waterfalls in the area make this one of the prettiest mountain locations I've ever been to. The bouldering from the north ridge to the summit was easy, but we got a little off-course on the way back down. Since it was clear, we could see and recognize over a dozen other 14ers to the west, south, and east from the summit. After almost no sleep the night before, a 3-hour drive there, a long hike, and a 3-hour drive back to Boulder, I was pooped.

Up the rock to the left of the Cross Couloir for about 500 feet, then up the snow in the couloir to the horizontal cross bar, the up the rock to the right of the cross. Nice alpine climb.
