Great day on the mountain. Led a group from the CU hiking club up and then we skied/boarded down. Really fun time!

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,

...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!

Date Climbed: Jul 10, 2008


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.

Date Climbed: Jan 8, 2011


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.

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

svenssoncGood Climb of HP #21  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 22, 2003


Hasse, Eva and Caj started in alpine style from the Elbert Creek campground and summitted in good spirit after all the false summits. Off the summit before the thunderstorms came in. The third highest state highpoint.
We continued South to Taos ski valley after climbing Mt Elbert, to make an attempt on the NM highpoint, Wheeler Peak.

Date Climbed: Oct 3, 2010


On the summit in a base layer! It was SO warm! Went up the South Mt. Elbert trail, parking at the creek crossing. Sweet trail. The steepness of the first part of the trail will fool you, but the rest is cake! What a beautiful day!
