slowbutsteadyColorado's highest  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 23, 1997


Climbed the North Mt. Elbert trail. 5am to 10:20am. On my descent down several hundred ft. a young upstart(teenager)came roaring down from the summit asking about which trail we were on. Turns out he should have been on the east ridge. He cut across the basin to join his group with the greatest of ease. When you're young you can do anything.

astrobassmanMy first winter 14er


2007: This was a great introduction to winter mountaineering for me. It was a long day though at 9 hours.
Update: 04/18/2010: First 14er ski descent. Good times.

TLPMy first Colorado mountain  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 16, 2007


I took the Northeast Ridge. It was such a great time for me. I was a bit nervous beforehand, I have to admit. Here I am after paying a lot of money to get out here, and a lot of people knowing I'm attempting this, so I had to make them proud. It was a tough hike, it's no "walk-up." It's just so darn steep. There was maybe 8 of us out there that day. After awhile I attached myself to this couple that was also out there. It was just so awesome for me when we got to the top. It was incredible! Somebody screwed the summit register thing on too tight! Nobody could open it! Urg! Colorado is an amazing place!

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.

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.

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.
