Date Climbed: Aug 4, 2013

I was happy to get out of the car and stretch my legs after driving up the dirt road (Old Fall Road). I made a quick trip to the top since my wife and kids were waiting in the car. I went to the Alpine Visitor's Center right after hiking to Marmot Point and watched some lightning strike the ground a few hundred yards from the visitor's center. I was glad I got off the peak before the storm hit.

Nice easy trek done on a whim. At the curve in the road we thought, that looks like a nice vantage point. A few minutes later we were rewarded with some great views.

We walked up to Marmot Point after driving up Fall River Road. Yep, there are marmots up there.

After being turned away from Snowdrift by a ranger due to a fire on the west side I decided to make the annual fall pilgramage up Fall River Road and also added a few ranked bumps along the way.

argothorrehab the knee hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 7, 2009


After a slow drive up Fall River Road, I hiked the short distance up to the summit of this little peak in an effort to see how my knee will do after injuring earlier this season. Had the summit to myself while a group of 20 lounged around half way up. Nice views from the top.

joegrimfun little peak  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 27, 2008


My wife and I decided to drive up to Trail Ridge and bag some easy peaks as a way to reacclimate to altitude, after having been near sea level on vacation. Marmot Point was the only peak we were able to do before it started to rain. We had it all to ourselves and really enjoyed the views, although we didn't stay on the summit but for two minutes due to the approaching rain (and what we were afraid would turn into a thunderstorm.)

Date Climbed: Jun 14, 2008


My wife and I had to find an alternative for our aborted Mt Ida attempt after we found way too much snow in the trees. We were the only ones on the summit while it seemed hundreds walked up Unnamed Pt 12,005 near the visitor center. It gave me a good chance to scope the route to Desolation Peaks.

This humble summit can be a strenuous climb if you ride a mountain bike up the Old Fall River Road from the Lawn Lake Trailhead ... hike up to the summit and back... finish riding up to the Alpine Visitors Center, then back across Trail Ridge Road to the Lawn Lake Trailhead.
Total ascents = 2.
