Date Climbed: May 27, 2006


Hiked the Southwest Ridge from Grouse Canyon Trailhead. It was very cold and windy - the batteries in my camera died. I couldn't see clearly for several hours after this hike due to the wind. This was my second time on Princeton's summit. The first was via the Mount Princeton Road from the radio towers a year earlier with my sister-in-law Kristy and father-in-law Steve.

Date Climbed: Aug 28, 2007


Spent the night in the chalet that Young Life runs at the end of the 4WD road. Awesome amenity.

Drove up there just to spend the night on a cross country drive. We had to hit the road early the next morning and didn't have time to summit, but on a morning walk I came face to face with a mountain goat in the fog. Awesome experience, but I gotta get back there to actually summit it!

hans.schenkMy 3rd 14er  Sucess!


Climbed this with Mike Mills in August 2000. We were staying nearby and had a few hours to kill. We drove up to 11,000 ft. and hoofed to the top and back in no time at all. The weather was perfect!

mnicholsLate day hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 8, 2006


Got out to Mt Princeton kind of late, had to go back to the little town store to grab some sunblock. Went up alone, ran back down when I saw on the summit that some dark clouds were coming in. Probably the fastest 5300ft I've ever lost while on foot! Started raining once I started up the car, talk about luck.

We drove up to the radio towers and hiked from there. There were gliders all over the place and one flew so close that those of us on the summit could see the pilot sitting in the cockpit. Frightening but amazing. Great views.

The first time I tried this mountain I followed a group of people up the wrong trail and ended up having a "learning experience." The second time I tried, found the right trail and succeeded!

Not a bad hike. If you're going, might as well follow the dirt road to the end and summit Tigger Peak on the way.

Date Climbed: Aug 5, 2007


Least favorite 14er so far - carrying a camera was almost a waste, except to get shots of my fellow hikers. Trail (and road) to around 12,700' is good. Lots of talus and scree from that point to the summit. Threatened rain all day (7AM-2PM), but held off till we got in the car!

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.
