wbassS Mt Elbert  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 1, 2010


A wonderful day with three, maybe four clouds in the blue, blue sky and just a handful of people atop Colorado in the early morning. Lucky us! Wonderful to see the sun rise just as we passed treeline.

Can't say that this was the greatest hike but it was still satisfying to reach the top of Colorado.

Ascended via Black Cloud and descended via South Elbert (cars at both trailheads). The hike up Black Cloud was tough but beautiful with fresh snow on La Plata and Ellingwood Ridge.

Baaa. Been wanting to do this since I was a little kid. I dedicate this climb to Grandma and Grandpa, although they are gone, for introducing me to the mountains back in NC. It was 5.5 miles and 4800 ft. vertical from near the start of the 4WD road for South Elbert Trail. Nice clear views from the top.

Date Climbed: May 21, 2002


Left Chicago on the evening of 19th and rolled into Leadville in time to head to the bar, only to watch my Red Wings lose game 2 in overtime to the Avalanche. It all worked out though. I hiked to Colorado's highest point the next day and the Wings raised the cup a few weeks later!

Climbed the east ridge, and you could not ask for better weather to hike in. Hiked with some friends, and it was their first 14er. It was great.

Awesome hike and great trail! Camped close to Elbert Creek Campground and got an early start. My quads were killing me from Mt Sherman yesterday but thankfully was able to make it!

Took my 9 year old up the South Ridge. We made the summit at 9:15 am after a 6:20 start. He was a real trooper. On the way down we watched the thunder clouds build and we were driving out by 12pm. Saw lots of people heading up.

Date Climbed: Jul 13, 2010


Intended to do South Elbert Trail. Found the old mining road, that dead ends and some tailings. Route found my way up the ridge, hit the 14er on the southwest slope of Elbert along the Black Cloud Trail and continued up to Elbert. Fantastic climb. Took 5 hours to go 11 miles roundtrip. Returned on the South Elbert trail.

highlandvillagerNo clouds on Black Cloud  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 4, 2010


Hit the Black Cloud trail at 2:50 am and summited around 8:20 under a beautiful clear sky in strong winds, with two partners close behind. We stayed on the summit for over an hour and left when it got crowded. What a view! We descended the scree slopes beneath the South Elbert / Elbert saddle and followed the creeks down the valley until they converged near the old cabin ruins and we rejoined the trail.

This was ranked 14er #53 for me, I have completed the list!! It was a great day to summit with a lot of great friends. I carried a grill to the top so we could have hot dogs along with our beer, shots and cigars! Thanks to everyone that I've climbed with over the years - it's been an amazing ride! And thanks to everyone behind the scene for your support!!
