My buddy got a gash in his thigh when he slid down some snow (on purpose). He limped around for a couple of weeks, but was okay.

Some date in 7/02, with husband. Another beauty on the south side of a Sawatch 14er. Wildflowers are found in the MILLIONS. An easy hike too.

Great climb until the last 1,000ft. Snowpacked near the summit and thunder moving in.

A very pleasent day, nice weather and not too hot. Passed by a 14ers inititive group doing trail work just below treeline.

Much more enjoyable than Elbert or Massive.

Left for summit at 7:00am, reached the top at 10:40. We were running for our lives from lightning by 10:50. Probably set a speed record for the descent.

Solo and did not see a single person until I ran into a couple on the summit who came up from Winfield. Saw 2 people on way down.

Livelife4SummitsRoute Climbed: via Northwest Ridge Date Climbed: August 14th, 2003  Sucess!


A beautiful day for my last summit. I was actually considering doing this peak via Ellingwood Ridge but after Princeton, I did not feel like making things hard on myself and decided to just take the main trail and enjoy my last summit of the summer. Once on the summit, I was all alone and it was the best view I had all week long. I decided to do what I always wanted to do, and thus I beat off right there on the summit and left a piece of me for everyone to enjoy. It was a great culmination to a hard week of peakbagging.

My 2nd attempt (first Oct. 2000, started out too late, partner was out of shape and slowed us down as well); coming off night shift, didn't sleep at TH camp, indigestion from failing vegetarian diet, drank 3 beers night before, altitude sickness started at peak and lasted for a while down, dry heaves and all. Made it, though!

Beautiful day, but we didn't feel great. So many wildflowers! Next attempt will be Ellingwood.

Awesome route! Solo climb, 8hrs trailhead to summit. Stayed up high on the ridge but avoided most of the 5th class. This route is definately not a walkup and should not be underestimated.

I underestimated this beast!! The route's difficulties are sustained and feature plenty of challenging route finding. It took me about 7.75hrs to reach the top, 10.5hrs car to car. I stayed mostly on the ridge, but ducked off of it a few times when things looked 5th class. A dusting of snow didn't help things either!

The Lake Creek Approach is a relatively easy "walk-up"
