WZimmermanDrive-up/walk-up  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 23, 2014


From the parking lot, the hike to the summit/marker is much less than half a mile. But on this August day the winds were at least 30-40 mph and the air temperature was 30 deg F. There were snow flurries. The winds were the kind of sustained winds that have to be leaned into. Ill prepared in shorts and hiking sandals it was a bit of a challenge.

OnagerEvans-Spalding Loop  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 15, 2014


Started at Summit Lake early around 7:30am, quickly made the summit of Mount Spalding, and then took the West Ridge all the way to Mount Evans summit. Glad to see there weren't that many people on the summit. Descended the easy NE route back to the trail head at Summit Lake. Not bad for altitude training, don't think I'll be back up Evans for a long time since mankind destroyed it.

chicagotransplantWinter West Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 16, 2014


West ridge from Guanella Pass winter closure. Snow was packed on the road from snowmobiles, and pretty well consolidated on the trail and willows so not much post holing. Upper route was pretty well windblown, some patches of snow, but not that deep and mostly grass and talus.

Date Climbed: Nov 3, 2013


Windy solo loop from Guanella Pass with Spalding and Gray Wolf. Evans was very windy, the 13ers weren't quite so bad or I probably would have just bailed after Evans. Lost my hat but luckily still had my balaclava!

cdevenney84Guanella Pass - wet feet  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 24, 2013


There's really no good way to go about hiking this from Guanella Pass. No matter how careful I was I still got my feet wet. Also climbed up the wrong side of the gully and had to carefully downclimb and traverse to the left side. I was scared of a slide. If I had to do it over I would have just done the Sawtooth traverse.
