We had tried Elbert's south trail on 19 feb and had to turn back because the conditions turned bad. We went back in April and had gorgeous weather.

Hey, how were the conditions? I am thinking of climbing in 2 weeks and wondering if I should bring snow shoes and/or crampons. Thanks so much,
Chris

...but a long day. Great weather! Third summit of Elbert, but my first time in winter.

This was frustrating, gorgeous, mind-bending, and fun! We camped for two nights on the shore of a couple of lakes close to the trailhead. Then we started up the trail from a parking lot early one morning (although not early enough to miss the daily rain in the early afternoon). Bugs, switchbacks, open snow belts, shortness of breath, altitude sickness, and wonderful scenery were all a part of this memorable hike.

Up the Black Cloud trail. Took too long due to dragging "extra weight" with me. Bwahaha! Couldn't beat the storm, so had to turn around. I'll be back!

While I was through-hiking the Colorado Trail, I took a side trip to the summit on a beautiful summer day. It was very crowded and I was glad to get back to the relative solitude of the CT.

First winter ascent of a peak. Had a beautiful day weather wise, and the trail was nice and boot packed. Good way to bang out this class 1 route.

MattGreeneTwice in 2 days (almost)  Sucess!
Mid July 2010 - Attempted a night ascent, but a thunderstorm turned me back just above treeline. I tried to wait it out, but it lingered for a few hours. So, I descended in the dark, slept a few hours, then headed back up and tagged the summit early the next morning.

Scary afternoon. After completing Massive in the morning, was unfortunate enough to be on the summit when a lightning storm rolled in. It was the first time I'd ever heard the air "buzzing".

2nd day in Colorado. Fairly windy and cloudy, it seemed like there might be T-storm danger. But it snowed.

On the way down, saw a young couple coming up the trail carrying a baby. 2:30 pm, clouds rolling in, enough said.
