Tjohn67238A good long hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 1, 2012


Hiking up via the Southeast Ridge, we enjoyed a good, long hike. It was nearly 1 1/2 miles along the summit ridge, so we couldn't linger on the summit too long. We didn't want to be caught in a storm up there. The entire round trip, up & down, was 9 hours.

Ridgerunner755Highest mtn. for me so far!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 17, 2012


We took the old mine road just before the end of the 4x4 road to the south trailhead. From the mine at the end of the road we went straight up to the ridge to S. Elbert, then on to the summit. Took this route so we could see the summit instead of taking the standard south trail, which we took back down making a nice loop. Saw a couple ptarmigan and mulies on the way. Sunny but very windy, blew off the trail a couple times. My new highest point!

Started up about 6:20 and summited about 11 am. Stellar day with blue skies and limitless views. Did the south route and enjoyed the 4WD road. Down in about 2.5 hrs and on to Margaritas in Dillon.

Date Climbed: May 26, 2012


Used a 4wd to drive to upper parking spot, and then took 8 hours to clime up and down. The snow is limited at this Memorial day. But the wind was gusting 70mph, wich I had brought a ski-mask with me.

technicolorNHMy first 14  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 14, 2010


Easier than I was expecting and a great introduction to 14's. Took me three hours and forty five minutes to the summit from the parking lot near the Mt Massive trailhead to the east. My first climb outside the foothills of the East Coast.

Date Climbed: Jan 5, 2012


This was an easy winter ascent due to very good weather. We've also climbed it in spring via the West Face snow couloir (also easy).

Great day on Elbert, still snow and lots of frustrating postholing between treeline and meadow on the descent. I was prepared for the first false summit, but the next two tricked me. Either way, it was still fun, in spite of postholing up to my waist!

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.

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.
