altitude14erWhere's the Snow?!  Sucess!

Climbed with SPer "asphazell" and Lil. The storms didn't move in until we stood on the summit. Not much snow in the Southern Sawatch this year..

Reached the summit at 8:40 in the morning, then went over and tagged Cronin Peak as well. Beautiful day and not another soul within sight!

Date Climbed: Apr 16, 2006


As gurlyclimber said, we sort of invented our own way up this mountain using a combination of the road, grassy slopes, snow filled gullies, steep talus, and exposed ridge scrambling. Seeing as it was Easter, I just thought "Easter Basket" was the best way to describe this fun alternate route. Except for the postholing at the end of the day, this was in our opinion the perfect way to climb this peak. Get it before the gullies melt and you can avoid the switchbacks on the road!

Easter Basket isn't really a route name but chicagotransplant appropriately named it so since our way up was a mixed "basket" of climbing styles, roads and events. We started at the bottom of the road, headed upward on some snow slopes, tried to make the class II more exposed and fun and miserably post-holed our way back down. All in all, a great day. We had the entire peak to ourselves all day long. April is the PERFECT time to summit this peak.

An easy day from Browns Lake. It was a long walk out back to the trail head.

Too bad there's been so much mining activity in the area ... but a nice summit. nonetheless.

Hiked all the way up from the 2WD parking. Quite an early-season workout.

Solo. Full winter conditions. I camped at treeline and read Brave New World that night and freaked myself out. The next day a few inches of new snow and 0 degrees F, but otherwise total beauty.

We drove to probably a little over 11,000ft. (something I'm usually not keen on doing. I prefer to summit mtns. traditionally, alpine style) and started hiking. I had my sisters husband (Kevin) with me so it was unstandable driving that far up. But we had a good time. Pretty easy mtn. with good weather.

Other than 1 major creek crossing, the route is very easy. Pretty much just follow the jeep trail.

I have no qualms with long hikes involving 4000'+ of elevation gain, but why hike if you can drive? My 2005 Xterra made this an easy trip and a more comfortable one since fog and rain visited intermittently all day.

Kind of a miserable day. Started the hike at the fork in the road at 10,800 feet. Had I known how far the road went, I would have driven up farther. Lots of road hiking. Yuck. Thankfully the rain let up after a few hours.

Uneventful hike except that the crappy road up the mountain bounced my battery terminal off the car battery. Gave me quite a scare when I couldn't start the car after the hike.

We HIKED the road (to gain the 3,000+ feet elevation rule)... MANY vehicles passed us... but we were still the first to summit that day!:-) A nice trail leads from the road up 500 elev to the summit... a little windy at times, but enjoyed it as always! On the way day there were people everywhere "digging for gems."

Drove to timberline over the absolute worst 4WD road I have ever been over. Hiked up the road with Mountain Girl to about 13,800 where a full scale mining operation was going on. A nice finish over the spine to the summit pitch. This was 14er number 22 for me.

A long schlog from Rt. 162 and more of an introduction to prospecting culture than I expected. Fun day on the massif, however.

Parked at the Baldwin Gulch Trailhead on Fri. evening and hiked up the 4WD road for 3 miles to the road junction at 10,840'. Found a nice campsite here BUT lots of use in this area by 4-wheelers. Just as I was going to sleep a group pulled up and camped about 100 yards away. They yelled & hacked away at trees all night, capped by shooting off a gun at 3:30 AM! 18 times! My worst camping experience ever. Some guys I met near the summit the next day said that they could see the rednecks from where they were camped & they appeared to be shooting at fish in the creek! Thanks to the early "wake-up call" I started up early & took the road to about 12,700'. I left the road & hiked east up the steep and sometimes loose slope toward the 13,700' "saddle" on the south ridge. I wouldn't recommend this route & I noticed later that Roach's 2nd edition guide no longer shows this as a variation. The last climb up the south ridge to the summit is steep but short. On the descent I took the road all the way down except for an obvious (but unmarked) trail at about 13,000' that cut off a long switchback.
