Date Climbed: Aug 6, 2008


Climbed in the early evening after climbing Crestone Needle in the morning. Had absolutely beautiful weather without a cloud in the sky. Enjoyed the sunset and put on head lamps for the last bit of the trail to camp. Overall, a great weekend in the Sangre de Cristos.

Date Climbed: Aug 18, 2008


The crux of this hike was probably driving up South Colony Lakes. A pretty nasty road, to say the least. Summitted on a cold, windy morning and encountered 2-3 inches of snow from the saddle all the way to the top, which was pretty weird for a mid-August outing (although CO weather never ceases to surprise me).

Overall, a nice, easy hike with some of the most spectacular scenery in Colorado...seeing the view of the Crestones from Humbolt's ridge makes me very eager to climb the Needle at some point.

My 43rd 14er. Humboldt should try a little harder to be awesome like all the peaks around it.

Climbed with my friend Dan Pate of Fort Worth and his daughter Lauren. It was Lauren's 14th Birthday and her first 14'er! She set the pace and we made it in 2 1/2 hours from camp at South Colony Lakes to the summit.

This was my first climb of Humbolt. It was via the standard west ridge route. I walked most of the road from where I parked my 2WD car.

Date Climbed: Jun 24, 2006


Hiked the West Ridge from Spanish Creek Trailhead round-trip in a long 13+ mile, 6600+ ft. elevation day. The view of the Crestones from the Bear's Playground was incredible.

MattGreeneScouting Trip  Sucess!
I climbed Humboldt to get a better view of the Crestone Traverse (not that the traverse route could actually be seen). Still, it gave me more confidence in making the traverse the next day. Humboldt was so nice, I was tempted to camp on top of it. Luckily I didn't, because the blue skies of the day gave way to a midnight thunder-boomer.

Date Climbed: Oct 19, 1992


This was my 1st 14er. My friend & neighbor Scott was my guide. He helped me get all my gear together etc. What a rookie I was. I was changed forever at about 13,000 feet as I gazed through the clouds and as the sun came up and cast it's light upon the Crestone's. We were surprised by the nice weather and my sense of accomplishment at the summit was astounding. Scott was a great friend and guide.

After getting a flat on S. Colony Rd, going back to town to get it patched, we made the summit in time for an amazing sunset behind the Crestones!

This is a formidable mountain in the right weather. High winds, heavy snow, but with the right gear it's all good.

I lost a contact on the way up and found it on the way down. That was the most exciting part of the day. We considered the Peak, but weather looked iffy.

My second. We weren't even planning on climbing it that day, so we got a late start. Made it to the saddle and just kept going. Very windy at the top, saw two other people all day.

I think there are more marmots on this mountain than on any other Colorado 14er I ahve been on. This is a great mountain to take a nap at the top on. =-]

Date Climbed: Sep 16, 2005


After an unsuccessful attempt at Crestone's N.W. Couloir, I turned around, returned to Bear's Playground, ascended the high unnamed peak, and then hit Humboldt on my way back to my South Colony Lake camp. A playground indeed!
