Via the North Route. Hit the trail early to avoid the t-storms late morning. Fabulous view, but man it feels like there's about 20 mountains higher when you look around.

Left the North Trailhead at 8am, met up with the mob at the top at about 11. Later start than I would have liked, but the weather was fantastic so it didn't matter too much.

After a soaking rain dropped several inches overnight at the Elbert Creek Campground, the day cleared out enough that we had no problem making the summit in about 2 1/2 hours. Great views of Mt. Massive, which we climbed the next day. Lots of people on top, but all great folks.

Ignored the weather reports and drove to Colorado anyway, turned out to be just fine. Stayed at the Leadville Hostel and ate the best prime rib of my life at Quincy's. My first Colorado 14er!

Great day for a climb. First summit with Cops on top. Very fulfilling.

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.

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.

19th 14'er for me, and 8th for Spencer the dog. We topped out at 10:30 and met lots of nice people (and their dogs, too!) on the way.

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!

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

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.

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.
