It was my first solo summit and also my first solo 10,000 feet plus peak. I scrambled in perfect weather and had the whole approach and mountain to myself, ideal day for soloing.

Chester is a very rubbly mountain, even by Rockies standards. Not a lot of hands-on scrambling, but the views are great from the narrow summit.

A favorite of mine, climbed it twice. Once in 1999 and another time in 2003. A great peak to bring relative novices out to discover the mountains. More than a walk up, this peak offers interesting scrambling but without too much exposure.

Great Scramble! Luckily there was still lots of snow in the chute up the the col, so we didn't have to fight the scree. Above the col the snow was a lot less helpful and a dangerous looking cornice was still frantically hanging on to the summit ridge, thus we did not risk walking on it to find the summit cairn. Had great weather. Started out at 10:00 were on the summit at 2:15 and were back to the car at 5:15. My Dad did great on his first scramble at 58 years of age!

Jean Paul SamsonToo Hot to Climb?  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 3, 2006
It was a fantastic, hot day in early September. Ran into two parties of two descending from the col. One guy thought me crazy to try ascending in the heat of the afternoon. Started at noon, topped out at 4:45 p.m., back at the trailhead at 7:45 p.m.

Great scramble. Enjoyed the whole area. All types of weather on this day. But very enjoyable.

This is a local popular scramble and a decent ski area as well. There are many mountains to scramble back here including another popular outing, Fortress Mountain, but Chester is the shortest (I did the last 2500' in 1:20). Still a hump as everything in the Rockies is. I posted a trip report and my web site to the links for more info or pictures on my scramble. Thanks for adding it William!
