395guythird state highpoint with my son  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 4, 2009

395guy

Hiked this with my 10yo son on Saturday, 4th of July. Our 3rd state highpoint in a 6-day span (also AZ & NM). We had planned to hike this on Friday the 3rd, but it was raining in the morning so we postponed the hike. There was quite a parade of people going up the trail on the 4th of July.

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!

Bad timing. A weak low was passing through, making for solid cloud cover above 14k. Got the the summit just before 9:00 to enjoy the fog and light hail. Half an hour later it had cleared up! Grrrr.

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.

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.
