Everyone thought we were crazy for not having skis. Time to learn. The walk down wasn't so bad.

B-Grooms1 Win 1 Loss in 2 days  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 13, 2014


I started out climbing on the 12th and got turned away at 12,600' due to high wind and white out conditions. Went back up the next day on the 13th, the day was clear, winds at the summit were about 30 mph, lots of fresh snow. Above 13,000' post hole up to the knees in some places. on the way down we caught some snow drifts and sunk to the waist in a couple places as well. Overall, beautiful up there, cold, windy, fresh powder, made for a challenge. Saw some mountain lion tracks above 12,000'. great climb

Started at the North Elbert Trailhead and went up the NE Ridge to the summit, then down the South Elbert Trail and back to where we started on the Colorado Trail. This made for a very nice loop hike. The aspens on the South Elbert Trail were amazing.

On my descent passed a guy with a pony keg: "My last 14-er in Colorado; come drink with me at the top." Amazing feat but I declined.

Climbed the standard Northeast Ridge route. All was uneventful except the snowstorm that blanketed the mountain above 13,500 feet.

funnyfarmSpectacular Day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 21, 2014


Did Elbert as part of a loop with Wheeler (NM) and Humphreys (AZ). Weather could not have been better. It was my third high mountain in 5 days and my legs were "feeling it". Met a great group of guys from Ohio. Might not have made it without them. Thanks guys!
My 14th high point.

nswardNice Hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 17, 2013


Hiked up with some friends, for whom this was their first 14er. Elbert is a taxing hike, but without exposure; a great introduction to 14ers, as long as people are in decent shape.

Date Climbed: Jun 20, 2014


Michelle and I summited but I was sick for two days prior and had zero energy from step one so time and quality of the journey is unmemorable.

Had the Box Couloirs all to myself with the snow in great shape for climbing! I had perhaps the wackiest weather day out with a bit of everything (tornado touched down in Fairplay that day)

Planned a long "layover" through Denver on the way back from a project. Climbed Elbert and then proceeded to Crested Butte for a weekend of mountain biking. Camped under the stars and bathed in rivers. A great trip.
