|lizs||Route Climbed: I think the one and only route?? lol Laramie Peak Trailhead Date Climbed: July 16, 2005|
|Was proven how out of shape this lowlander is. 4.75 hour hike up; 2.5 to 3 hours down, plus a sprained ankle on the way down (but this Energizer hiker kept the boot on and kept on hiking).|
The last mile or so to the top is steep and full of often loose rocks. The top is magnificent, yet crazy. I have a bit of vertigo and, being alone, I couldn't quite make myself go to the helicopter pad. >8-O But I did climb on rocks some. Had a view to Elk Mountain to the south in Medicine Bow National Forest's Snowy Range.
I guestimated the trail at 5 miles, looking at signs. Someone hiking with a pedometer said it was 5.25.
Lotsa manmade towers on top good for calling folks back home to say I was on top of mt. LOL! Geez, I hadn't even seen a western mountain since 2000!!! I enjoyed it, despite the heavy breathing. lol
Oh yeah, the Friend Park Campground was $10, if I remember right, for me and my tent, arriving around 11 p.m. and hiking at 8 a.m.

|A killer hike for a measly 3.5 miles to the top. But the view (and the helicopter pad) made the hike worthwhile. A great trail to try in the winter, too. Don't get your car stuck.|

|I climbed this peak in the changing aspens with my beautiful wife-to-be. The climb was refreshing and the views were spectacular. I cannot wait to climb this with Alex Wann and three others in December.|

|I climbed for a good two hours after dark and made camp a little over half way up the mountain. This was my first solo ascent, and well worth it! The next morning I summitted at about 7:15.|
