DarrenKnezekMt. Elbert, South Mt. Elbert, & Mount Cosgriff  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 20, 2011


Parked and climbed the South Mt. Elbert trail to the summit. Hiked down and then up to South Mt. Elbert. Hiked further southeast to Mount Cosgriff (13,588). Hiked down the northeast face of Mount Cosgriff aiming for the mine road. Hiked most of the mine road and it lets you out exactly where I parked for the South Mt. Elbert trail. Going over to South Mt. Elbert was a much more beautiful hike than the one up!

There were at least 50 people on the summit, including a girl in a bikini blasting music, cooking hot dogs and handing out beers. Probably saw over 100 people on the trail that day. Not your typical climbing experience, but it was fun nonetheless.

Great views all around. The weather was great. Only a couple people on the summit before me, well over 100 still working their way up as I was going down.

The 2.5 false summits were a little discouraging and the hike felt pretty long. I think hiking on 3 hours of sleep might have contributed to the deathmarchesque feeling. Mosquitos were bad below treeline but everyone had a good time. Stopped at Pancho's in Buena Vista for post-climb mexican and it was decent.

Date Climbed: Jul 23, 2011


Started on the trail at 2:30am and reached the summit about 6:45am. Hiking the steep alpine stretch in the moonlight was gorgeous and at an ideal cool temperature. Lovely sunrise with 360 views and cell phone service on the summit.

I had a great hike with my wife on Elbert. The Aspen were changing colors for the first thousand feet. Fall is a great time for Elbert.

Hiked up the South Elbert Trail. The mountain wasn't crowded on this day. The weather was nice in the morning and by afternoon it was raining and hailing not long after I got back to the trailhead.

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.

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.
