This is a nice climb, it is pretty easy, and you can go about it pretty lesurly(Depending on weather!). My sister, father and I couldn't stay on the summit long, and had tho haul down the mountain due to a storm.

Second ascent of Mt. Elbert. First winter ascent with a snowboard descent. Great weather!

Great day! Fairly warm and sunny! Ascent 3.5 hours, descent 1.75 hours, and spend 30 minutes at the summit. Was sure to spot the High Mountain Institute from the summit. There was a scout troop climbing up that I passed in both directions. Not sure of their ending status. Very friendly people at the top, beautiful view!

It was about 41 at the trailhead, which is remarkable for a spring day at 10,000 feet. The summit was windy and very cold, but also very clear.

A great day in the mountains.

I was only two days back from Europe, and not acclimated to the altitude. Way too many subpeaks on the trail which lengthened the trip. Still a great day in the hills, and a great way to earn my fourth fourteener.

Long slog during the infamous 'drought'. Watched a small fire near Leadville burn throughout the day. Beautiful summit...Nice to be as high as you can get in Colorado without being on a plane, balloon, or rocket! :)

A typical Sawatch hump, remarkable only for its regionally superlative height... although, now that I come to think of if, that section up through the trees was pretty darn steep.

My first fourteener. I have visited Colorado numerous times so I decided to try and climb the highest mountain in the state. I made good time up to fourteen thousand feet and then it felt like someone turned off the air. I made it to the top with about thirty other people.

This is an excellent trail. I left early and met a small group of people on top, but I passed many hikers on their way up as I came down. The false summits on this route are demoralizing.

There was plenty of snow to hide the trail that day.

Caught in a couple thunderstorms after a late start, but made the summit in a 4.5-hour round-trip hike.

Easy walkup--but a fairly long day!

Feels pretty good standing on the top of Colorado

Climbed Elbert with the Colorado Mountain Club. We camped at 11,400 ft on day 1. Then on day 2 we hiked to the summit. There was tons of snow and the weather made for a very cold summit day. This was my most challenging accent of Elbert of the three times I've been up it.

Mount Elbert is a spectacular mountain. Even though im a sixteen year old from kansas, this is one of the best hikes i have ever had the privledge of going on. plus i had the bonus treat of being accompanied by some of my friends from our youth group

After a long slog through deep snow below timberline, we enjoyed mostly wind-compacted snow until we finally reached the summit. It was a very clear day, with relatively low wind, despite the cold temperatures. Great climb!
