Was turned around in 2010 due to weather. Day started off nice, clouds and snow moved in when I arrived at the peak. Views were not all that great due to clouds.

The hike was exhausting, but certainly worth it! The views were amazing. I am really happy to have this one under my belt.

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.

IlafanWOW!

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.
