got a surprise with the road plowed to the grays creek TH, saving me a day and 10 miles of snowshoeing!

the flip side of that was saturday was now my summit day and i endured -5 deg temps in a heavy wind and snowstorm. the rime ice on the northeast ridge was beautiful and spooky simultaneously. finished the day postholing through bottomless snow in the dark for 2.5 hours; what an adventure!

low cloud ceiling but it rose as I ascended. Clocked some 59 mph winds. That's a little brisk!

Wife, dog and I via the east ridge. Devil Armchair is beautiful. Unfortunately we couldn't see from the top as the last 800' or so was socked in.

An incredably easy mountain. I think I almost sweated!
Good views of Antora.

A great climb. I enjoyed the Marshall Pass Road. Me and my friend Jeff spotted Beaver and Deer but saw no other climbers..not much of a trail up this peak. Sunday we went to the Mt. Princeton Hot Springs, good times!

My first attempt was a month earlier and I turned back near treeline when the wind picked me up and slammed me against the talus! 2nd try was successful. Up NE Ridge, down E Ridge. Nasty snow conditions in the trees.

The day turned out to be fairly nice compared to the forecast as I did a neat loop to include Chapita and Pt 13472, descending via the CO Trail after bailing off the ridge at the Chapita/13472 saddle. A 2WD vehicle can probably make it to the end of the road on the CO trail. An 8 hr day with breaks.

Up the NE Ridge, down the East Ridge. This is the way to go on this one, the bristlecone forest at the base of the armchair is beautiful.

Not much snow in this part of the state from the previous days storm, seemed to bypass the southern Sawatch. Clear day, but chilly and windy. Could see Pikes, Uncompahgre, Castle, Evans and Blanca, this peak has some of the longest view corridors I have ever seen!

Beautiful day but the short distance is deceiving. This hike still took quite a while due to the up and down on the ridge and the endless talus. I was relieved when we finally reached the summit. My group only saw one other person the entire day.

Very little snow, probably had the mountain to myself. Had to pay for the great views with a lot of wind!

3 of us camped at Marshall Pass, got an early start and hiked up the West Ridge, out of the trees by sunrise and on top in time to celebrate my 21st with a Fat Tire before the afternoon storms began building. Fast-growing cumulus led us us to make the call and descend directly down & south off the west ridge into the trees for a chill, meandering walk back.

A cloud hung over the summit with sun all around. Eventually the clouds boiled down almost filling Devils Armchair. It was overcast on the summit but 20 minutes off the summit the skies completely cleared.
