aislinnmclFirst 13er  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 11, 2017


Climbed St. Mary's Glacier to James Peak via SE Slopes Route. Left trailhead at 7:30am ($5 for parking) to avoid soft snow in the afternoon. Bare booted up the glacier with gusts up to 35-40mph. Put on snowshoes after about 2 miles. Missed the cairns that mark the trail as it hugs the ravine to the left but keeping right along the ridge works well too. Took 5.5 hours. Awesome weather - sunny, no clouds, all views.

Wow, lots of snow up there still! Ascended the standard St M's route, except we went up through the trees and enjoyed the steeper snowfield on climber's left of the snowfield proper. Ascended much of the way with a cool groups of 4 Czechs and one suffering US guy. Enjoy a short glissade off the summit. A lot of skiers and boarders out this day! Late lunch at Tommy Knockers, of course. With Mikey.

Hiked up from the Rollinsville side this time & it was a beautiful approach. More wildflowers than I've ever seen around that area. Great summit hike!

Snow and some light post-holing, but no biggie and overall a good day. Great weather, temps in 50's, light breeze. Nice cornices on the summit ridge. Lots of skiers.

An awfully brutal day with insane winds. Wasn't all that cold really but the winds made it nigh of impossible to stop for even a quick food break.
Blue skies, hard-slab snow. Thank God this is as easy as they come. Else, with current snow conditions, might have thought twice of going for the summit.
Good day.

Perfect day! Nice early season dusting of snow on all the surrounding peaks gave it an alpine feel.

Descended through the next valley to the west and passed by the old ski area with its relics of lift huts, terrain park rails and other antiques.

There was a time when I lived in Colorado, hiked a lot, and could climb mountains like these fairly easily. That time has passed. Now that I live in Alabama, and this being my first climb up a Colorado mountain in 3 years, my lungs burned all the way up. I enjoyed it nonetheless!

Wow, it was my first trip where I needed an ice axe and my new ice trekkers. The latter broke appart. Whiteout on the summit.

Started from the upper parking lot (TH) and followed the ridge line northbound. Got back to the parking lot by the snowfield above Saint Mary's Glacier.

Perfect weather, windy though. Fun ascent and descent with Stacey.
