Date Climbed: Jan 11, 2010


Started at South Elbert trail. Beautiful day, no clouds, a lot of snow, but hardpacked from other hikers and skiers. For about an hour, I was the highest person in Colorado. Incredible views. HP #18.

Nice easy hike once I found the well-trampled highway. Met some crazy dudes who had camped on the summit the night before. Trip report

Date Climbed: Aug 1, 2001


A fun hike up and no people until the summit. Do driving up Mt.
Evans and staying in Leadville count as aid?

PaulRomano1st 14er, 2nd State HP  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 1, 2009


Took the unrelenting NE ridge. Made a few mistakes on this one- not having warm enough clothes, and not eating until getting to the summit. Both contributed to me getting a bit of altitude sickness. Nevertheless, the summit views made up for how crappy I felt!

dancla22Good Sidetrip  Sucess!


Thought about trying to make it up for sunrise, would be a really good sunrise location if you can make it up for it. Nice views all around.

MRoyer4Colorado Trail Side Trip  Sucess!


Took a side trip during a thru-hike of the Colorado Trail. Lots of people on the trail (I think it was a Saturday but I didn't really know what day it was).

MlaskyFirst CO 14er  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 12, 2008


This was my first CO 14er, and both my girlfriends' first 14ers ever. We did an alpine start on the best night of the Perseid meteor shower. Beautiful cloud free day, and we had a crowd free ascent. After we got to the top, about 15 or so others showed up and we met interesting people...all seemingly with more summit aspirations, as did we. One couple had just engaged. This was the first of two days of CO summits.

Gorgeous day. Climbed with friends Cheryl and Deborah. Started just before dawn. Had some snow, a rainbow, and some rain on the descent.

Date Climbed: Jun 23, 2004


When I lived in CO I always hiked up a mountain on the anniversary of my husband's death. This was the 7th year..... An amazing day!

vanman798NE Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 18, 2009


I climbed Elbert as my hundredth distinct peak, and in the process I set a new personal height record. It's a plain mountain, but it offers wonderful views in all directions.

I climbed this peak with my wife (at that time), and it was a great accomplishment.

ryan_txOur first 14er  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 6, 2009


Climbed with 7 other friends via the northeast trail. It was the first 14er for all of us. This was my second attempt, the first being in April 2008 with snowshoes which ended up not going too well.

Date Climbed: Sep 7, 2009


I spent the night at the trailhead to enable an early start of 5 am. I passed one person and was the first on the summit from my route. It was cold and windy but very rewarding. See my Trip Report about doing seven 14ers in eight days.

Dartmouth HikerMy 24th state highpoint  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 10, 2009

Dartmouth Hiker

Went with my good friend from college and native Coloradan Elise. Both coming from lowlands and being a bit out of shape, took us 6 hours to summit (via the NE ridge), reaching the top in blustery conditions and flurries. Compared to Whitney, this was a surprisingly steep trail in some places!
