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.

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.

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.

Good, easy, late season hike to the top of a Front Range Mountain, the highest point in Gilpin County. Good views of Winter Park, Evans , Torreys, Grays, Pikes, and Longs. Still some boarders on the rails of the glacier getting ready for this season.

Starting from Rogers Pass Trailhead. Climbed James Peak twice this day - before and after the peaks to the south. On the way down I met a man who is hiking the Continental Divide (starting June 8 in Canada). He was almost out of water, having not found the last two springs he was looking for. I hadn't seen a water source all day long, so he started down the trail with me until we found a small spring just above timberline. It really made him happy to see water running!!

Climbed this one with a friend and got caught in a nasty storm just after summiting. Compass?



I thought you brought one!

Dude, I thought YOU brought one!



Ended up descending the completely wrong side of the mountain and having to get a ride back to the car the next day... what idiots.

Climbed the hill south of St. Mary's lake. Great tundra hiking. Very nice trail to the summit. Ice Lake is stunning.

We did sky pilot today, there was some fun snow in the basin below the east face, and up into the first turn up into sky pilot (left). two more sections of snow and two nasty rotted rock sections and we gained the summit ridge.

From FDR353 out of Tolland or Apex there is still a snow field leaving you about a mile short of the James Peak Lake TH. Some vehicles where driving around road closed signs to avoid the main road and reach the TH. (whats wrong with a little more exercise?Just hike it).
