GMagieMt Elbert  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 3, 1974
Drove from Kansas all night Thur to reach the trailhead on Friday morning. Was hoping to get adjusted to the altitude that Fri & do the actual summitting on Sat, July 4th. But got greedy & found other flatlanders trying to make their way up. Got motivated & summitted on the same day. Was a beautiful day & a beautiful hike.

2nd time of the week - had to go back to get clear views up top. Beautiful clear day but wind in early morning was absolutely brutal, but great day nonetheless.

A gentle giant, a very tall hill. It seems we only climbed it for height. No real exposure or scrambling, but this is one that you have to do, Colorado's highpoint!
Summited at around 11 a.m. or 11:40 a.m.
Were on the trail head 7:30 a.m.
It snowed some on the top, but no thunder, many marmots.

I stopped evey hour and ate a PBandJ sandwich and guzzled sport drink (I brought a gallon of water). Made the day very pleasant. Great views from the top of course. 3 1/2 hours on the way up and 2 3/4 down.

Had a few days off so me and a friend went up to the Leadville area for some 14'er bagging. We climbed eight total in three days. Elbert was the first. We made it on the NE Ridge in 2:30 minutes. Weather was amazing!

This was my 7th Colorado 14er and 8th 14er overall. This was my first solo 14er. Just moved to Colorado so it was kind of a warm up for the rest of the climbing season. Got off the mountain at noon, just before a pretty good storm hit the mountain.

Date Climbed: Jun 9, 2009


Took the S Mt Elbert trail. At 12,700-ish, met a girl from Michigan who was walking down alone with chest pains. I mulled that over a bit en route up to 12,943' (according to my GPS) and then turned around to accompany her down, for which she said she was grateful. The mountain will still be there next time. =)

Climbed to the summit in the clouds, and donned rain gear at the top - unfortunately we didn't get to enjoy the view from Colorado's highest.

Date Climbed: Sep 24, 2007


Took the less travelled eastern approach from the 2wd parking lot. Great day with spectacular weather! It is an easy ascent in prime weather conditions but be sure your fitness level is up to par before attempting. My fitness level was disrespectful to elbert and he let me know...ouch, sore for many days to follow!
