skiitswitchRoute Climbed: from N. Mt. Elbert TH, northeast ridge Date Climbed: July 11, 2005  Sucess!


Pretty easy trail - but the false summits and steepness towards the top play with you a bit. 3 hrs, 25 mins to summit - definitely not moving too fast. My first crowded summit experience. Strange. Cool mountain though. Trip report to come

There were not too many people on the route but we were on the summit with about 50 of our “closest friends”.

This one felt great! I didn't experience the standard altitude uck- yeah!:-) Summited in 2.5 hours, spent 1.5 hours enjoying the day on the summit (& drinking a lot of water), & was back down to the car in 1.5 hours- awesome! And treeline.... oh how I love treeline... a word of advice: when the bladder is full on a tall/open mountain such as Elber (with lots of people on it), RUNNING to treeline is the way to go!:-)

My first 14er at age 60. Wasn't fully acclimated to altitude so it was a slow, hard ascent for someone who lives at an elevation of 446 ft. But, I made it! Beautiful views from a crowded top.

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.

KojonesRoute Climbed: Halfmoon Creek Trail Head to Mt. Elbert Trail Date Climbed: September 20, 2003  Sucess!
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.
