We had car troubles driving up Pike's Peak, then rented a small car to get to the trailhead. We slept maybe 3 restless hours in the car, then started out for the trail. We ended up veering off to the left of the trail somehow, and consequently, didn't make it to the top. It was a beautiful area, however, and we will be back!

Physically this is still the hardest day I've spent in the mountains. Coming straight from several years on the couch to 14,433 is hard work. This hike renewed my love of the mountains and has led to many summits in the two years since.

Climbed with Media Dude, several of his friends/co-workers and a few dogs. Long day on a beautiful route. The weather cooperated with plenty of sun, 'warm' temps and little wind. Skis and boards outnumbered the snowshoers today.

North Mt. Elbert Trail Date Climbed: 12 August 2004

My dad and I, along with my golden retreiver Cholla, left the trailhead at first light with fog in the valley. The day was sunny with some clouds. As the day went on the wind picked up and a coolness was felt on the summit. The trail is straightforward with only a few false summits to get your hopes up. The crowds were not bad in the early part of the day. As we desended after Noon people were still heading up the trail. It was a beautiful day on the top of the Rockies.

Felt like we were making pretty good time until some trail runner blew up and back down the mountain as we were about an hour off the summit - man was he fast!

marv5201Great views, tired knees  Sucess!
First 14er I made, nice hike up after staying at the campground and hiking 12 miles the day before. Hiked up with a few others and we all made the peak. Was a good easy hike up but with old tired knees the trip down was more of a challenge.

My first climb/Highpoint/14'er/you name it. Went with my dad. He couldn't make it past the tree line but I made it all the way, dodging lightning and sleet. It may sound cliche' but it was a life changing experience.

Good hike and nice views. South Albert sees little traffic and worth the extra 0.5 mile slog

Another state highpoint! There were way too many people on the summit - it was kind of hard to enjoy, but I managed to. Did San Luis Peak and then Wheeler Peak (NM) after Elbert.

Beautiful fall day in the Rockies. Enough snow to test some new gear, but pleasant enough to enjoy the summit. Cody the Dog joined me on the summit. My first big hike in Colorado. Hopefully many more are to come.

I hiked my first 14er with longtime friend Aron in June of 2005. We headed up the second-class route from the southwest. It was a great trip! I highly reccommend it.

Twenty-one years after first seeing Elbert, I finally stood on its summit. I hiked this one with McCannster, on a very pleasant weekend that was full of chilling in the flaming aspen highcountry.

My wife and I were able to bag Elbert and South Elbert this way and had the pleasure of hiking up though aspen groves, mining ruins, christmas trees, bristlecone pines, amazing views on snowy barren ridges... the summit views were expansive; in short, this route was fun AND special. Perhaps this mountain isn't spectacular, like some monster in the Sierra, but it was a lot more intersting than Grays or Torreys for sure.
