My first alpine summit! It hurt, but we had been hiking in the Flatirons in previous weeks, so we were somewhat prepared.... I look back at pictures and wince at the clothes I was wearing! Ouch!

Climbed this mountain with the Boulder Mountain Club. They paced too slow for my taste. Bunch of slackers! At least there is class 2 stuff towards the summit. I liked the prayer flags at the top, giving it a nice Himalayan feel.

Very cold two night solo camping trip.



There are quite a few photos available here:

I had a few days free, and for some reason chose to spend them freezing my butt off alone in the snow... I took three days and two nights to summit Mt. Audubon(13,224 ft) alone. The trip was great, except I forgot to bring sunscreen and my sleeping pad. I had to use branches from nearby trees for insulation!





The climb itself went well. I started out early, hoping for the good weather to hold. Although it was extremely windy, I managed to make the summit by noon. At the summit, I was sure I was about to be blown off the mountain. Seven hours later, I returned to camp for a much needed nap.

Great warm up climb for a fourteener. This hike gave me a good scouting report on the iced up south slopes of Long's Peak.

A nice summit. Combined well with Paiute Peak. My dog Sopris was along with me on this traverse.



I had previously attemted Mount Audubon in Febuary of 2001. I got caught in a little blizzard on that try and turned around some 300 feet feom the summit (above the head of the eastern cirque).

Really nice day hike with fantastic views of the surrounding peaks. The mountain by itself doesn't have much going for it but the views around it are incredible.



Be prepared for wind on this peak. There must have a steady 30mph wind going when I got to the summit and it seems like every time I'm in the area the wind is blowing hard.

Fun day hike or even better early season ski tour.

After 14er bagging the last two days I decided to stay close to home and take it easy. I found this ridge to be lots of fun despite it's short length. I didn't see anyone else and the ridge offered unsurpassed views of the surrounding peaks. The class 3 sections were very fun and straightforward despite the snow. Highly recommended for new climbers wanting to get off the hiking trails.

As noted, this is a great, easy peak for a hike. It can be attempted any time of year, but be prepared for wind any time of year! I've been up it a half dozen times or so, and been driven back by winter winds more than once.



Highly recommended for a longer outing is to climb Paiute Peak from Blue Lake, then traverse over to Audobon. This has you descending a known and easy trail during the afternoon storm hours. The traverse is a Roach *classic*.

Made it to the ridge just below the summit. The views of indianpeaks and Longs peak were amazing.

July 2004:

Looks like I followed in Aaron's footsteps. Erin wanted to experience the SE Ridge for herself, so I made my second climb of this fun route. Next, we traversed to Paiute, and then climbed Mount Toll before descending to Blue Lakes.



This route, described in Roach's IPW book, puts you in a spectacular position alongside Audubon's bowl. A trip report is available here.

PeterD.Route Climbed: Normal trail, from parking lot. Date Climbed: Mid July 1987  Sucess!
This was my first "climb" in Colorado many years ago. It was a wonderful introduction. I have since gone on to bigger and harder things but I will never forget the exhiliration of getting up to "high altitude" for the first time. Audubon is a great early season tune up to help get the legs in shape, and I keep returning to it for this reason or if I just want an easy half day hike. The biggest challenge is getting there early enough to get a parking spot at the Mitchell Lake trailhead area. The usual route is up and back down the well used trail. But for variation consider hiking down the large south face into the Blue Lake drainage. It is not hard but I did not find any trail when I did it. It is mostly stable large talus, but pick the descent route carefully because there are some steep and cliffy areas. Once down pick up the trail coming down from Blue Lake and walk out back to the same parking area you started from.
