Bark Eater

Had a spectacular hike up via the North trail while acclimating for the Leadville - Mosquito Marathon. We were greeted by three Army Blackhawk helicopters near the summit. Quite the strange spectacle!

Came up from the south. Had no one on the trail the whole way up or down... great hike! Only saw others when I got to summit, then it was a party.

Climbed via the North Elbert Trail. Met a horse up there (and rider) who came up via the South. Quite unexpected.

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.
My 2nd 14er and 38th state highpoint!

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.

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.
