cftbqNice Family Hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 15, 2004


My 21st 14er, and the first with 3 generations of climbers: me and my wife, our daughter, and our granddaughter, who bagged her first. Clouds threatened, but didn't really unleash anything. (I want to do it again as a run, and see how long it takes.)

bricewilsonWinter ascent of Elbert  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 17, 2007


South Mt. Elbert trail (East ridge). Great weather, just a little wind. The snow softened up on the descent and we were sinking pretty deep even with snowshoes. Only saw one other person.

Date Climbed: Jul 4, 1984


This was my first 14er. I'm not sure about the year, it might have been 1984 or 1985. Even though I was there in July, it was cold in the morning and some snow fell near the summit.

First time above 14k. First (and only) time experiencing the pain of snowblindness. Approaching the summit and viewing the sea of peaks beyond was absolutely amazing!

Date Climbed: Mar 3, 2007


Part of the 14ers.com winter gathering. Out of 28+ people who showed up that morning, I believe 14-15 of us summited.
This was my third winter summit of Elbert and sixth time summiting overall. Couldn't ask for better weather!

spannring29Great Solo Hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 19, 2006


A great day for a hike--blue skies and a light breeze all the way. I really enjoyed the hike below treeline and the summit views were great. In spite of it being a Wednesday, the trail was quite crowded with people heading up as I was headed down.

CruxPhotosMidnight summit  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 9, 2006


We decided to beat the lightning storms/weather by climbing at night. The next day it was completely shrouded in clouds and lightning storms. I managed to get a few minute long exposures by moonlight. On a side note...my blue heeler puppy went with us and got to be carried down part of the way.

Southeast Ridge, 10 miles. Elbert is a good hike with great views. I've done both the Northeast Ridge & the Southeast Ridge. I'd recommend the Southeast Ridge, it is much less crowded on any given day.

A decent hike that was pretty uneventful until we met tons of people on the top. A good one to check off the list.

Our first Fourteener ever and enjoyed every moment of it. Bagged South Elbert along the way. The two of us plus our dog had the main summit all to ourselves for the whole half hour. Hard to believe, since it seems to be one of the most popular summits in CO.

Climbed from the parking lot out on the road to Twin Lakes as there was lots of snow. Snowshoes to the ridge then the wind had blown it bare. 5 hrs up, 2 1/2 down, 11.2 miles RT 4,850 vertical. Great climb but very windy after noon.

A bit unexciting for Colorado's highest peak

atavistthunderstorm direct  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 15, 2000


Starting after noon, the ranger or tourist chief was a bit surprised that I intended to dayhike and summit that same day. As would be predicted by any Colorado local, the clouds came in and the static built up in the air. I took cover and waited out the storm. I was able to summit and had to overcome the slow onset of AMS. Within 24 hours the road trip finished and I was back in Indiana.
