After climbing Mt. Whitney, I became addicted. Climbed with my brother and his dog. Another great climb with incredible views.

taw6644The Highest I have ever been  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 17, 2007


Nice steady climb from the Northeast Ridge. Met up with James C for the climb. Saw a few Marmots too. I have to say that Elbert has been my most fun 14er yet and tts a really relaxed climb.

jhansen007West Ridge from South Halfmoon TH  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 15, 2007


Camped at treeline at the base of this route. Beautiful area, only saw a couple guys on 4-wheelers on the road on the hike in. Otherwise, complete solitude til the summit. Weathered out a thunderstorm at night in my bivy sack but skies cleared up nicely. The ridge isn't too difficult, just lots of crappy rotten rock. Test every rock before you put your weight into it be ready to hop to the next one when it moves. A dozen or so people on the summit at 9 in the morning. Definately more exciting than the yawner standard routes and a chance to get away from the mobs trodding up the east side of the mountain.

A day to remember on 7-7-7! I wasn't sure I would finish this one due to a late start the day after completing Mt Yale. Turned out to be a beautiful day as the storms waited til late afternoon.

3rd 14er, 1st solo climb. Met lots of cool people on the trail - a special thanks to the nice couple that took a picture of me at the summit when my camera stopped working!!

scvanmS Mount Elbert Trail. 17th  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 23, 2007


Got number 17. Had great weather but I lived to regret my lack of pre-hike workouts. I was sore for 5 days!!! Had a great father son trip with my son CJ. We used the trail from the South East (South Mount Elbert Trailhead). I am glad we used te 4wd to cut off some of the distance.

Date Climbed: Jun 24, 2007


My wife and I climbed with our dog to celebrate our 3rd wedding anniversary. It was an easy hike that was perfect for the hound. The day was absolutely gorgeous with warm temps and little wind at the summit. We stayed on top for quite a while to take in the views and enjoy the morning.

2skinnersHP #5 Solo Climb (2nd of 4 highpoints in 3 days)  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 19, 2007
This was by far my favorite of the 4 highpoints I did on my long trip. The others were New Mexico, Kansas, and Oklahoma. The scenery was absolutely amazing with near perfect weather to boot.

mountainloverCOEnjoyable Hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 22, 2006


This was an enjoyable, easy walk-up with nice views of the Sawatch and Elk ranges from the summit. My only complaint would be the throngs of people streaming up and down the two main routes. Try this one on a weekday to avoid the crowds.

My 1st 14er. Only 1 other hiker seen all day.

Date Climbed: Aug 26, 2005


Arrived and spent the night camped at the Twin Lakes campground near the trail head. Thunderstorms and rain much of the afternoon and evening.

Due to early morning showers, I did not begin my ascent until 10:30 AM. Climbed to 13,500 elevation as the clouds began to rebuild.

Since this was my first experience with a Colorado 14-Teener, I chose to retreat rather than risk being exposed to the danger of a summer afternoon thunder and lightening storm. It was my first and thus far only attempt at summitting Mt. Elbert.

I hope to return for another attempt and this grand old chunk of rock.

Date Climbed: Aug 6, 2003


Nice and peaceful after the day before... Had a beer at the summit, and took a few hits of our bong 200 feet below, away from the kiddies at the top. 9 hours RT from Twin Lakes, including some lingering at the summit.

Great day - spotty weather - bad at times, but we stuck it out and made it! Two friends from PA went with me - we had a great climb.
