Date Climbed: May 19, 2007


I reached the lake at 7:00am, sought out the steepest section of snow jutting up from the lake between multiple large, rock outcroppings. Difficulty didn't exceed easy Class 3. Summited James Peak at 9:54am and was back home (Denver) at 12:40am.

My first time on the Glacier. Just went to top of glacier and practiced self arrest and had a ball. I can't wait to go back and ski.

Date Climbed: Apr 30, 2007


Warm sunny day made the snow awefully soft. It was the 1st time I've climbed in this area without any wind, which was a nice change. Snow was to soft to glissade from the summit, but st. mary's glacier was still a fun trip down.

Date Climbed: Mar 23, 2007


Skinned and hiked up the East Slopes from St. Mary's Glacier. Gorgeous day with lots of good snow. Windy and cold on top, but very pleasant everywhere else. Great skiing on the upper slopes and on the glacier.

Skinned the route from Stewart Rd. to just before Loch Lomond then up E slopes. Had planned on checking out Bancroft traverse (hence the Fall River Basin start)but a whiteout came in while on summit of James. Bancroft traverse is too technical to attempt blind so... skied the E slopes with 30ft visibility. Weird solo day

Felt good to get out the crampons again, but didn't need them for long. Climbed the SE ridge and descended the East slopes. Snowshoes aren't needed now. Fun hike.

GahugafugaFun day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 19, 2002


Climbed James Peak by the gentle south slopes just for fun. Most notable part of the day was almost stepping on a stupid ptarmigan that didn't have the sense to move when a larger beast was approaching. In their summer plummage, they're really hard to see! A few good glissades on the way down.

A great hike in perfect weather, sure beats working on a monday! The views above treeline were awesome, and the views down superstar and shootingstar couloirs were stunning - looks like a pair of awesome snow climbs.

Date Climbed: May 27, 2006


Not sure if this counts as a summer ascent yet, but it sure felt like one. Wonderful snow conditions from the top at about 10:45am.
A couple of traverses required to keep from taking the skis off.

CMC outing with some friends. Fierce winds all day, blowing snow, ice, and pebbles. Reached the summit but couldn't see anything. Ahh, the joys of winter mountaineering! Apparrently, the wind in this area of the Continental Divide rarely ceases. Great workout!

Both couloirs are pretty simple. Kinda boring slogs actually.
