sync1st Winter Summit  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 1, 2009


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.

Date Climbed: Jun 7, 2008


Climbed this one with Jamie Nellis, Prakash (Maverick), Brian (Zenalpinist) and Stephanie. Great climb but tiring kicking steps the whole way! I then skied back down the couloir, steep and narrow and the top. Definitely my steepest backcountry line to date!

After we got to Loveland Pass road and found it closed, I took my wife here for her first climb. We climbed with my friend Heath and his woman, Kelly (her first climb as well). Several CMC members on a training course on the lower glacier. We climbed up the glacier to the plateau. Lots of wind, and great views all day!

Date Climbed: Jun 8, 2002


James Peak was the first mountain I summited on an unrecorded date in the summer of 1983. That was the year I moved to Colorado. I think the mountains were already in my blood. I didn't realize yet however just how much I would get into mountain climbing. This was my third climb of James Peak.

spannring29Continental Divide Traverse  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 5, 2007


We dropped my Jeep off at Rogers Pass, then returned to Berthoud Pass to start the traverse. Great day until I realized my keys were in my buddy's truck back at Berthoud Pass.

Pleasant, but cool day. Started along the road to Fall River Reservoir following the Continental Divide Trail to the north.

armorfootNice traverse from Corona


Usually went up from Corona Pass. Been a few times from Berthoud. One time took a ridiculous approach from the Jim Creek drainage. Still wish to try from the east side.

panhandletrailsJuly Snowstorm  Sucess!


Hiked to the summit from Loch Lomond with friends Greg and John. It was a mild sunny summer day - until the clouds blew in and it started snowing. We almost froze, but fortunately the storm blew out as fast as it came in, and the sun warmed things up quickly.

belexesLoch Lomond Road & Continental Divide Trail  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 22, 2007


I hiked along the Loch Lomond road for awhile, then took the Continental Divide trail the rest of the way. Then I hiked down to Loch Lomond, and took the road back to the car. I started at 7:30, reached the summit at 9:45, and got back to the car just after noon. I saw fewer than ten people climbing James Peak, but there were a whole lotta vehicles parked all along the road to Loch Lomond. As I neared the summit, a helicopter landed down by Loch Lomond and stayed there for awhile.
