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!

Reached the summit via the SE Ridge route from the Black Cloud trailhead. Only ran into 10 other people. Spent 45 minutes on the summit, last 15 were alone with great views!

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.

Climbed Mount Elbert via South Mt. Elbert Trail (third summit since 2001). Returned back over South Elbert and Cosgriff (UN 13,588). Nice hike, great views!

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!

Date Climbed: Aug 22, 2002


A long climb by the main trail (east side), but not particularly difficult if the weather is good. As with any Colorado 14er, the view from the top is spectacular!

Just out of treeline we got blasted with high winds and a small snowstorm. Snow subsided but winds didn't. Summit was very windy and cold but the view was amazing.

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!

Date Climbed: Jun 26, 2007


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.
