#1 7-2-17 W/ Brent & Lana. Beautiful day, strong winds in places but very pleasant on the (crowded) summit. Thanks to the 14ers Initiative group for the wonderful switchbacks above upper South Colony Lake.

Great hike starting at Rainbow Trail with bushwack up the East Ridge. Snow on the East Ridge didn't even require traction it was so consolidated! Fantastic day!

kronshage3West Ridge Route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 13, 2016


Started around 6:45AM. Highly suggest bringing a 4WD car that you're willing to put through a little abuse to get to the upper trailhead. LOTS of mosquitoes, repellent a must. Probably my favorite place route in Colorado in terms of views. LOTS of wind along the ridge. Back at car around 1:30PM.

Climbed Humboldt Peak with a friend in August 2009. We saw another hiker with two domesticated goats carrying HAM radio equipment to the top. The views of the Crestones was great! The hike was quite straightforward.

Date Climbed: Sep 7, 2016


With daughter and friend a day after Crestone Peak. We were crab crawling on the summit to avoid getting blown over. The view from the saddle above South Colony Basin is hard to beat.

Straightforward hike up with really nice views of the Crestones from the summit. Spent over an hour on top enjoying the view. Ran into a hostile mountain goat near South Colony Lake on the way down.

Date Climbed: Jul 2, 2014


Oh, to spend an entire day in the mountains! In spite of the distance and the vertical ascent to manage in a day, this one has it all.

BradBartickEast ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 3, 2015


With Michelle. We chose the East Ridge from Rainbow TH to avoid crowds and because it is shorter than WR by 3 miles. Getting on the ridge is straightforward. Follow the cairns to get on the ridge before the RB trail you are on takes you there. a climbers trail, easily followed, exists on the ridge proper. It dumps you out at a steep forested hillside. From there, do your best. We used game trails to switch it back until treeline. Once at treeline, it is a slog to gain a false summit at 13300 (don't hold me too that). Not too bad, just boring because the angle is pretty consistent. And the massive ridge you are on blocks the views until you pop out on top of the false summit and ridge up to the summit. The climb is really only visibly awesome from there on (with just 800 vert remaining). Summit ridge is fun. Basically, I am saying that the West Ridge by the lakes is likely way more scenic. We descended the ER due to wanting to avoid being annihilated by a system moving in. Enjoy!

Date Climbed: Jul 3, 2014


The hike up to the ridge was a bit longer then I expected. Once I hit the ridge I got a bug up my butt and took off fast. Picked the harder (class 3) lines to make it more fun.

8.5hrs of incredibly scenic hiking on this longest-day-of-year! The rocky 4WD rough road to the trailhead doesn't represent the well-maintained trail up to summit!

Date Climbed: Jun 22, 2014


So far the most beautiful CO 14er trail I have been on. Well maintained, wildflowers, gorgeous views, bluebird sky, gentle breeze, frisky marmots... Let summer begin! (and only a few boot-path laden snowpatches to get through)

Quick climb of Humboldt Peak before breakfast at Lower South Colony Lake, after climbing the Crestones the day before. Cold and windy but there was a great sunrise at the top!
