Date Climbed: Jun 20, 2009
Drove nonstop from Texas with my brother and father to climb Mt. Elbert. Great trip! Got an early start and all three of us made the summit by 11am despite the heavy snow and wind at the top. Going back June 2010 to climb Mt. Elbert again along with Mt. Massive.

Snowshoed up the Northeast Ridge from the North Mount Elbert Trailhead with my girlfriend Meghan. The wind at the summit was stronger than anything that I had previously experienced.

Nice day. Not too difficult. Snowshoes were nice towards the bottom at the end of the day. New high-point for my canine companion.

Hiked up the Mt Elbert trail with my brothers. The weather turned out nicely after somewhat inauspicious portents the previous evening.

Good climb with friends...odd experience though in that the summit had a man with dress pants and wingtips, another with a full size poodle with a ribbon in it's ear! Takes all types to enjoy the mtns.

Started at South Elbert trail. Beautiful day, no clouds, a lot of snow, but hardpacked from other hikers and skiers. For about an hour, I was the highest person in Colorado. Incredible views. HP #18.

Nice easy hike once I found the well-trampled highway. Met some crazy dudes who had camped on the summit the night before. Trip report

A fun hike up and no people until the summit. Do driving up Mt.
Evans and staying in Leadville count as aid?

Date Climbed: Aug 1, 2009


Took the unrelenting NE ridge. Made a few mistakes on this one- not having warm enough clothes, and not eating until getting to the summit. Both contributed to me getting a bit of altitude sickness. Nevertheless, the summit views made up for how crappy I felt!

dancla22Good Sidetrip  Sucess!


Thought about trying to make it up for sunrise, would be a really good sunrise location if you can make it up for it. Nice views all around.

MRoyer4Colorado Trail Side Trip  Sucess!


Took a side trip during a thru-hike of the Colorado Trail. Lots of people on the trail (I think it was a Saturday but I didn't really know what day it was).

MlaskyFirst CO 14er  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 12, 2008


This was my first CO 14er, and both my girlfriends' first 14ers ever. We did an alpine start on the best night of the Perseid meteor shower. Beautiful cloud free day, and we had a crowd free ascent. After we got to the top, about 15 or so others showed up and we met interesting people...all seemingly with more summit aspirations, as did we. One couple had just engaged. This was the first of two days of CO summits.

Gorgeous day. Climbed with friends Cheryl and Deborah. Started just before dawn. Had some snow, a rainbow, and some rain on the descent.
