DerekFreedTough Winter Day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 13, 2011


Chilly from the start, made it through the snow to treeline where we met horrible winds. Group of 6, 3 turned back due to wind, 3 of us (the heavier ones) made the summit. Short summit stay before bolting back to the safety of the trees.

chicagotransplantWinter?  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 17, 2012


Solo ascent of East Ridge in what was technically winter, but it was 50 degrees at the trailhead and the trail was half melted out. Just an unbelievably low snow year and a very warm last 2 weeks. It almost felt like cheating to call this a winter ascent, I didn't even need snowshoes... Felt like late April or Early May.

Hard for me at this altitude, but great experience! First time at over 14.000 ft.

What a fantastic way to spend Christmas on a beautiful sunny day. Rather cold in the morning but it warmed up nicely and the summit views were stellar! Only six total people on the mountain.

A very tiring hike for me. Flew in from Phoenix at 8 pm, on the trail by 8 am the next day. Climbed this one, but with difficulty. Great weather and great views pulled me through this one.

ferdinandverboomEndless hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 5, 2011


My wife and I did the normal route. Summer had just came in and there still was a lot of snow on track. A very long hike on sloppy snowslopes. Pretty though without snowshoes or skies.
We had the route very much for ourselves that day.

Date Climbed: May 8, 2010


This was a very enjoyable mountain to climb. It was very cold on top! That's okay, because it made the experience all the more exciting. Thanks Elbert!

Date Climbed: Aug 28, 2011


I fell in love with the Rockies when I made this trip up Elbert. Beautiful views from the top and had the added bonus of getting to see a girl paraglide from around 12,000 ft. Looked pretty awesome! The hike wasn't anything too intense and was a great day hike.

Date Climbed: Dec 29, 2010


Hiked a serious boot pack (stashed the snowshoes right away) to timberline, then it was bare ground. Cold but essentially a walkup. Summited with just a few of us. Made the parking lot just before total darkness set it.

Date Climbed: Jul 12, 2010


Learned the value of bringing quality water, sipping it frequently, snacking frequently, too on this 10 hour 4700' gain adventure. Slow go due to there being four of us / two teens and two adults all at different endurance levels. We appreciate the views Elbert offered us....and the pain, too!
