We were going to park at the radio towers, but a tree was down in the road, so we parked just below the towers. Clouds all morning, dark and ominous, but no lightning. The summit was sacked in when we got on it around 10am. Took some pictures braved the 50+mph winds and decended. Clouds broke and the sun came out right as we hiked back over Tigger's ridge and back to the road. Some luck...

Climbed the entire road from 8900' yesterday, thats a lot of vertical! Its worth it, I'm training for Rainier. First one to summit for the day, there is almost zero snow remaining on this peak, just a few patches as you traverse below "Tigger".

Great way to spend Easter 2006. THe climb was long and draining in the snow, but the summit was well worth it. The road is open to the radio towers.

I had drove to the Lucky Mine about a half-mile above the trail to Mount Princeton. It actually turned out not to be such a bad thing since I was able to start off walking downhill and get my legs warmed up.

We climbed before the road was open to the public. The summit register was charred from a lightning strike.

We walked all the way up the road and camped out near 12,000 feet, and fought 70mph winds at the top. Mountain was dry, even though it was late November.

Sometime in 10/2002 with a group of friends from the radio towers 4WD parking. The drive up was tougher for some than the hike...A beautiful day.

Climbed with a friend for his first from the 2WD, turns out he didn't bring two of the nalgenes I gave him thus resulting in a long waterless hike for me, turned around to do Kit Carson the next day, 26 miles + 12,000 ft < 36 hours = a bit tired.

I had to park far below due to my little sports car wouldn't fare too well higher up :o)

It was dreadfully HOT. The hottest day I've hiked in by far. By the time I was half way up, I was down to just my shorts and shoes.

I had to bum a ride down with some girls in their jeep (I wasn't complaining!) because I just couldn't handle that distance with the heat.

High winds, lot's of deep powder snow early in the year. Climbed from the radio towers. Caution should be take on later ascents of this route due to avalanche potential. Several steep gullies were filling with deep snow by late October.

I had to go out of my way and the find "the road less traveled" and thus I was in a remote canyon camping in the brush all alone. So it was to no surprise that I had a hard time finding a "path" the next morning as this barely used approach proved impossible to find. Not to mention, cairns being built in different directions by all kinds of previous climbers who decided to make their routes, the trail to take. Thus I was forced to pretty much go as high as I could and keep on moving until I couldn't go no more. After reaching Point 13,971 as shown on my topo, I was on the right track and had an easy time getting to the summit.

If you park at the start of the Mt. Princeton Road get ready for a long walk inhaling 4 wheel drive vehicle exhaust!
