Despite some rainy weather, My son Lance, age 10, and my other son Travis, age 8, made it with me to the roof of Colorado via the South Mount Elbert Trail #1481. We had spent the previous night in Leadville which really helped us acclimatize I believe.

There was snow above the first false summit. The weather was great, and there were a TON of people on this trail. It looked like ants on the mountain from the summit.

Rocky Alps

For being the highest mountain after Mt. Whitney in the lower 48 states, I was surprised by how easy Mt. Elbert turned out to be(bottom to top and back in 4 hours, with the help of a 4WD road that let us park at 11,000 feet). La Plata is quite impressive when viewed from the summit, but overall the mountains in the area seemed more like big hills.

First climbed in 1967, two more times since then. The second time was a round trip in 3 hours and 21 minutes ... oh to be that young, again.

Made summit of S. Elbert (yes, a 14er too!). Weather prevented ridge traverse to Elbert. One of the most beautiful hikes in the Sawatch!

IamLubosReally windy on top!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 18, 2006


Climbed via the South Trail and reached the top at 4:30pm. Wes summitted about an hour earlier. Two other members turned back at around 12,500 ft. It wasn't snowing whole lot, but there was a lot of blowing snow due to wind gusting over the ridges at over 40mph. Lower mountain had several (more than 5!) feet of powder. Make sure to stay on the trail unless you enjoy postholing. Only saw one other group, three guys from the Bay area. HP #25.
