Date Climbed: Jul 2, 2012


Climbed from the towers with Brian. Nice day till the thunderstorms came. Nice calf cramp on the descent and the flickering of electricity in the trekking poles was scary...but otherwise fun trip.

A miserable hump over large loose talus. Will only return at deepest snowpack towards the end of winter, with skiis.

Was planning for Ellingwood Ridge on La Plata, so it's not surprising when the late June snow forced me south to Princeton that it was less than epic. Nothing special, but still happy to reach the top!

Climbed Princeton with my family. My sister got altitude sickness, but she made it, what a trooper. Lots of rock, but great views.

Date Climbed: Jul 9, 2011


Summited Princeton on a sunny day starting from about 10,500` on the road below the radio towers the day after summiting Mt. Harvard. Crowded trails and summit, I didn`t like this route very much but I had to scratch it off of my list.

Date Climbed: Jun 10, 2006


The trail is great until you hit the talus on top. It didn't stop 6 dogs from making the summit today.

Date Climbed: Jul 31, 2011


Note to self: Next time, take the right keys up the mountain so you don't have to throw a rock through the truck's rear side window when getting back to the trailhead.

chicagotransplantEast Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 25, 2011


A little elevation training with rkymtn and his wife before our Rainier climb in a couple of weeks! It was good to be able to get up above 14k again after all the 13ers I have been working on lately, of course I haven't seen that many people on a mountain since, well the last 14er I did in summer :)

EleutherosGreat Views, Boring Slog  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 21, 2011


A poor substitute for the snowbound Ellingwood Ridge on La Plata. Fantastic views on a clear day; however, one of the most boring climbs I've ever done. A typical Sawatch rock slog better done in winter. A visit to the chalk cliffs and the drive up to 12,000' were definitely worth it though...

Most memorable part of the climb: CRAZY SWIFTS (birds) cruising at 60 mph around the summit. WOWzer...

vetmikeNo sleep & 60mph winds. Almost fun.  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 22, 2011


Climbed with Matt Payne. Camped at the towers. Huge winds. Got no sleep. Left camp at 2am, summited early morning. Crazy winds all the way up. Slush on the way down. Mean day on Princeton, but got some incredible views of sunrise at 13,000ft. Totally worth it!

loraepost-holing despite snowshoes
Date Climbed: Mar 29, 2010
Too much snow to get through and it took several hours just to walk the switchbacks on the way up to the radio towers. The 4WD road was closed so I had to start at the Jesus camp parking lot. Stopped hiking 400 ft. below 11,000. Going back in better weather.
