I met a friend out here and we did this one together. I live in Baltimore at an altitude of about 500'. I arrived in CO on Friday and did this on Saturday. There were plenty of people on the trail and maybe 60 on the summit. Personally, I like seeing people out doing stuff, so it doesn't bother me. Anyway, we had a great time!

44 F. the night before. It was so good to be cold after a long long summer in northern NM.

Met 4 brothers on the summit who were there to celebrate the eldest's 65th birthday, cake & all. Pretty inspirational.

NE Ridge-
Started out and blew right through the CO trail thinking we needed to cross it and keep going. Once the braided trail started peetering out and I finally looked at a map I realized our mistake (needed to take a left on it). Besides putting us an hour behind we made it back to the main trail and were still on the summit before noon. Weather was comming in and we stayed only a few minutes. We were well off the summit when the thunder and rain stared but there were still a lot of people up high.

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.

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.

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