Snow shoes all the way to and from. Started up a 9:53AM, up an over St Mary's Glacier, through some high winds, past the rock pile, across the tundra, went a bit too far right and ended-up on a bare/rocky slope but soon found some large cairns. Reached the summit at 1:02PM. Glorious day, crystal clear skies with unlimited visibility. Back to the parking lot at 3:04PM. Sweet!!

Fun hike of James Peak. Saint Mary's Glacier was in rough shape. First time to see the glacier outside of winter. Very different!

Finally after many attepmts (1. Whiteout, 2. Cold, wind, 3. Car sliding backwards down the hill), the pup, the wife and I finally were successful. Also hiked over the bump known as Kingston, and scrambled to the top of Fox Mountain which held great views of St Mary's Glacier.

I'm not sure exactly when I climbed this one. It was one of the first real mountains I climbed after moving to Colorado.

I did it from the Winter Park side.

Great ski descent after battling the wind all the way up. I was knocked to the ground twice, and Ben three times. Brutal conditions, but well worth the effort.

Great, safe, winter climb. Easy to avoid slopes prone to sliding. Just be mindful of the way back down if conditions turn. It would be easy to miss the right descent.

This was one of my early climbs with the IU hiking group, and I enjoyed it thoroughly enough to be inspired to keep hiking weekly with this group!

My first serious winter summit. The wind was fierce on the glacier but let up a bit after that. A long slog up the snow, but a beautiful summit, well worth the effort!

A beautiful day for some climbing! Axe and I hit the summit before he strapped on his board to head back. I was able to glissade several segments. Not much snow up there now.

Wind for the first half of the climb was stiff. It died down once we reached the flank of James. Snow pack is consolidated with some loose snow. Crampons worked well for the whole trip. My wife was in snowshoes but didn't gain much advantage due to the packed snow. Great view from the summit; so many peaks to explore.

Climbed James and Kingston for a chill day in the mountains. The views were great and the alpine start paid off, as we were down before the Labor Day weekend madness took over.

6/12/11 - Climbed with my wife. Enjoyed watching playful marmots on the summit.
