Date Climbed: Jul 3, 1998
least favorite part was all the rocks at the top- tricky when wet

I like it on top

Steep climb up through the canyon, but fun popping out at treeline. Friends first 14'er. Weather held off for us to summit.

Third 14er, and again, climbed with my brother and his dog. Weather was absolutely perfect at the top.

Date Climbed: Jul 14, 2007


I started at 8900 feet at about 6:20AM, reached the summit around 10:15 and got back to the trailhead at 2:30PM. I like the road, it's not too steep, and it allowed me to make really great time. The weather was beautiful, with hardly any wind. That was a problem at the summit, for there were bugs out the freaking yin-yang up there. Nothing that bites or stings, but still very annoying. The scenery is some of the best in the Sawatch.

Date Climbed: Jul 1, 2007


Camped at about 11,000 at a perfect site, funny thing was all the guide books / online descriptions say the road is fairly rough especially above the radio towers. Well, around the corner after the radio towers we just so heppened to run into a brand spanking new mini-cooper from NewYork coming down the road! Either that car is bad ass or the road isn't as rough as it is made out to be. The climb was fairly easy except for a sore knee from Mt. Antero the day before. Number 21 on the way to 54.

I love the view of this peak after coming over Trout Creek Pass. I have climbed this one twice.

Parked just above the Radio Towers. Good weather, I was moving slow as it was my first time above 12K in many months.

rpaceFrom 8900 feet!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 16, 2007


Both of my dogs (such troopers!) and myself summitted! Over 5000 feet of elevation gain, and just under 7 miles to the summit. (It did take us 6 hours...)

Looking at Mt Princeton from US 285, it sure gives you a feeling of accomplishment!

Mots010A fine day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 11, 2007


Started from the Radio towers. Hardly a cloud in the sky all day and very warm. Hung out at the summit for 1.5 hours. KirkT posted a TR on 14ers.com. The trail is mostly snow covered still. Would recommend an ice axe and safe travel techniques for avy terrain. Snow is melting FAST.

First one for my wife and it was perfect. Little snow close to summit but beautiful. Camped just past radio towers and hiked from there. Hiking during the week keeps the crowds away..

Another one of Colorado's 14ers in my back yard growing up. I made this summit several times. I've done East Slopes from the 4WD parking and the trailhead @ 8,900'. It's 13 miles from the trailhead, but that's why we are here, right. (GO BVHS class of 1998)

Nice views from up there, especially of Mount Antero. Our slideshow is here: Mount Princeton via East Slopes

Date Climbed: Aug 8, 2000


Not too much effort given the road access. Still found it more interesting than several other Sawatch summits.

lilmantisGood hike!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 23, 2006


Started just under 11,000 feet to abide by the Colorado Rule. Took my friend from Nashville along, he made it a few hundred feet below the summit before altitude got to him. Not bad considering! Great weather with the only challeng being knee deep snow in alot of spots.Makes for a sprained ankle but there was not enough snow to justify snowshoes yet.
