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.

I climbed it first in 1999 and again a few years later. A pleasant walk-up.

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.

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,

...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.
