Standard route from South Colony Lakes. Temps in the 20's and wind gusts out of the SW up to 50-60mph. This was not much fun, although it was curiously fascinating to have the wind actually push me up as I climbed the final ridge. You can bet I stayed well-away from the north edge!

Spent a long time getting the Jeep to the end of the road - one week before its closure. I think I might rather have hiked!

Hiked Humboldt with 3 friends today. Started at the 4x4 TH at 8 am summited at 11:30 am, got back at 2 PM. Wanted to get a hike out of the TH before they closed it for good. The drive up the gnarly road was harder than the hike.

Did this one from the 4WD trailhead. Uneventful except for the brutally cold wind and bone shaking 4WD road.

Well, the tediousness of the 4x4 route nearly put me to sleep (5 miles an hour in 4 low...) but I enjoyed this hike. I was not feeling well for whatever reason and totally sucking wind starting with the climb to the saddle clear to the summit. But the weather held and we enjoyed the summit to ourselves and had pleasant weather for the outhike. Partners: Deb & Kevin.

Climbed 13,799 first from the 4X4 TH. 30-40 mph winds with lots of snow in the trees. A tree across the road on the way out resulted in a crushed middle finger but still a great trip.

Drove in from Colorado Springs, leaving at 3 AM. Started on the trail from the top of the road at 6 AM. A strenuous climb from the saddle, awesome views of the Crestones.

chicagotransplantEast Ridge variation  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 7, 2009


Climbed with Jamie and Prakash, sort of a variation on the east ridge route. The road was so well packed out by snowmobiles that we stayed on it much farther and gained the east ridge closer to the SE gully.

Picked this one off with Edward Earl after backpacking into South Colony Lakes that morning. We got lucky because the thunder was faint and far enough away that we didn't feel too threatened. Great view of the Crestones!

Date Climbed: Sep 28, 2008


What a great day. The afternoon did bring a small storm but we never had any issues with lightning, which made my day considering all the run-ins I have had with it here in Colorado in the past. Climbed with my friend Stephers (after she had just done a 26 mile marathon) and got my ass kicked. Guess I better start running more? Nice to just take off to the Sangre's for a couple days at the last minute!

rleclair6 PM Summit  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 6, 2008


It's a rare event to be able to summit a 14er at 6 PM but when the conditions are perfect...why not? Met climbing partners Alan and Patrick at South Colony Lakes around 3:30 PM Saturday and was met with the question - what to do Humboldt? Conditions - both trail and weather - were perfect! We summited in 2 hours, spent 30 minutes on the summit, and then about 1.5 down for a hot dinner of dehydrated pasta. Great times!

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.

mountainloverCOWest Ridge  Sucess!
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.

Hiked it after The Needle. Got down just before the noon showers showed up.
