Love Meeker, but only because of Dreamweaver ice route.

Woodie HopperUp Iron Gates, Down Loft  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 1, 2009

I really enjoyed this one. I finally made a good decision for my descent- I took the loft route down. There wasn't as much loose scree as I thought there would be along the "Iron Gates". You need to be careful when taking the knife edge, but if you're used to exposure you shouldn't have much trouble with it, that is, as long as it's dry. Summit nap was great. Still a great day despite the wildfire haze.

ash80should not be in the shadows..


An awesome hike. Did it back in 2001 and I thought this required more energy than Longs. A tough day out with an exhausting trough. Should not be in the shadows of Longs. Just as great.

A fun climb with some army guys I met along the way. Then headed over to Longs, Storm and LW.

Climbed from the Loft before continuing over to Longs. The sun rose as I was nearing Meeker's summit.

Climbed with Brenton Peterson (Fowweezer) in an eight hour car-to-car trip. The climb was in great, lean shape, but probably will not be around much longer - at least not until the next season.

Solo climb in combination with Longs via Keyhole, then descended via Clark's Arrow to the Loft, over Meeker and Meeker Ridge and down the Iron Gates. Great "loop" climb!

KieferIron Gates + Meeker Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 2, 2008


This mountain really caught me off guard. For some reason, I thought it would be cakewalk. MUCH more challenging than I thought. Good exposure on the ridge and amazing views of Longs!
Iron Gates was cool looking but kind of a let down. Next time, Dreamweaver or Dutchman.

My favorite of all routes on this mountain is Dreamweaver.

utclimberDream Weaver  Sucess!
I've climbed Meeker twice, once via the Loft and the other time on Dream Weaver. We hit Dream Weaver in perfect conditions, with the upper section as all ice, but very little rock required in the chimneys. Awesome route.

Took gear never used just crampoons and ice axes, two of us soloed up and down, was ice the whole way. A fun alpine route . During the climb it was a cooling off about every 45 min. clouds would recycle back and cool us off.

Long, but fun day above treeline from the Horse Creek TH. Crossing from Meeker Ridge to the Mt. Meeker summit was a lot of fun.

argothorLoft Route with Longs attempt  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 9, 2007


Climbed Meeker via the Loft route and then headed across the Loft and tried unsuccessfully to find Clarks Arrow. Got to the base of the Homestretch, but headed down via the Keyhole route to inclement weather.

Joe_ParvisMeeker via Loft  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 21, 2007


Snow had begun to collect in Loft, and ice was melting down the gully. Some snow and ice on the ledges just beneath the Loft, but these could be navigated or avoided (though I was very cautious doing so). Went in afternoon because forecast indicated high winds in morning. Left TH at 1pm and reached Meeker summit at 4:15. Winds were light with clear skies. Also made the traverse east to the eastern "summit". Not as bad as I'd imagined, but of course rock was dry and winds low. Descended and went off the back of the Loft for the Longs route. Reached top of Longs at 6:20pm. Thank you weather service for alerting me to the weather window! I had been chased down from the end of the Narrows the previous weekend, and it was nice to return in optimal conditions.

Ascended the "Baker Direct" route on the Loft, definitely a terrific route!

ktiffany22Loft route- Meeker to Longs  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 8, 2007


What a beautiful and interesting route! Gets you away from the usual Longs Peak crowd. Fun and "adventurous" climbing up the loft (stay on route to keep it at class 3... we made a few class 4 moves- oops)! Large boulder REACH for Meeker's summit (at 5'9'' you'd think I'm tall enough for these things... could use a couple of inches!). Headed down Keplinger's coulier, up Longs (repeat summit), and down the Keyhole route. Great fun!
