Started at the first stream crossing. Driving up the road is the biggest challenge on this hike.

Date Climbed: Aug 25, 2007

I started from the very bottom just before 6, just as it was starting to get light in the east. I did cheat a little bit when I left the road and took the southernmost drainage straight up the hill to avoid the switchbacks. I reached the summit at about 10:20. It was pretty windy and chilly on the way up, but it warmed up a bit and the wind died down once I got down from the summit. Lots and lots of 4WD vehicles and dirt bikes going up the road. On the return, I was offered a ride from some other hikers at treeline. There was no way in hell I was going to turn that down! We picked up two more hikers on the way down, and we arrived back at the cars just before 2PM. This is the last of the Sawatch 14ers. Now it's on to the Elks, Sangres and San Juans.

My first experience with lightening occured on Antero. I was about 400 ft. from the summit at 10am and a freak storm came up. The hair on the people coming off the summit was standing straight up and that's when I knew I needed to turn around. Pretty scary experience but bonded with some great people! I went back a week later and summited with the most beautiful, clear blue sky I've ever seen.

Probably the best weather I've seen on a 14er. Great views, not a lot of snow. What a great day...

Backpack to lake was harder than peak climb, only because of 60 pound pack. Left Browns LK for summit at 6:20am and on top by 9:55am. Used narrow drainage described in the Roach 14ner book to get to the flats sooner rather that staying on the road. Backpacked out the next day.

Weather was much cooler than the previous three 14ers. Needed to use topo map and compass after leaving the main road. Beautiful views at the top including view of Mt. Princeton.

Finally, I summited my first 14er. Man, it felt great. It was a beautiful day. No clouds, and we could see forever. Fun scramble at the end, at least for me.

Started about 10,300 feet. We should have started from the very very very bottom to make it somewhat of a hike. Followed the road up to the ridge, the wheather was picture perfect. Number 20 on my way to 54.

... day for a hike. Slight wind, just enough to keep cool. Started to get busy later in the morning, with trucks and hikers. Went with Dave from 14ers.com, and were met by Piker and Sean after a few minutes at the summit. All descended together and had burgers in BV to celebrate.

Hitched a ride up the jeep road with friends as the subaru didn't make it(too steep). A fun mellow climb with Mike, Marella, and Chris. I tacked on North Carbonate for good measure.

Hiked from the base of the jeep trail, which made for a very long day (14 mile round trip according to GPS). Thick clouds surrounded the summit, so views were minimal from the top. The jeep trail made the long hike easy at least.

On a funny note, my climber partner had an arm in a cast. Not too good for balance, but we hit the summit.

Nice summer day, no wind, steady stream of climbers. Many rock hounds looking for gems.

Rotten snow, a broken ski binding, and a bad weather report didn't keep us from the summit. Awesome day.

Date Climbed: Mar 10, 2007

Against all odds, crzyjt and I skied, bootpacked, postholed and occasionally groveled our way to the summit on a winter day that was forecast to be horrendous. But fate smiled upon us with clear skies for the entire ascent. And then she smiled even more with an incredible snow squall during our descent that turned our ski descent from an icy death luge into a creamy powder feast.

After doing Princeton five weeks earlier, daughter Trisha and I continued through the southern Sawatch. We drove to the creek crossing at approx. 10,850 ft., and had an easy 7 hour RT. With a decent early start (6 am) we had the summit all to ourselves at about 9 am. My 18th 14er.
