Still very deep snow. Had to rope my son to me (he kept sliding off the face). Duchess did great.

mountainloverCOLucky Day on Princeton  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 1, 2009


Hitched a ride both up and down the jeep road, which saved our group from a long and boring hike on this road. Started near the radio tower around 6:45 and summitted around 9:45. Spent thirty minutes on top and returned to the road (and jeep ride) by 12:45. Overall, Princeton was a boring walk-up with minimal views on yucky talus...not the prettiest mountain in the Sawatch range, but I'm glad to have done it and ticked it off the list. Princeton was my 27th 14er, halfway done!

I hiked Princeton with a meetup.com group. This was my 2nd time on Princeton. The weather was great, despite some clouds encroaching as we reached the summit. We spent nearly an hour on top, then headed down to the saddle and on to Tigger Peak.

Hiked with Max and Brangwen (my hounds) from the CT crossing on a Monday. Saw one jeep full of people on a tour, and that was it for the day. Very peaceful.

Climbed Princeton via standard route from ~9500 ft (Colorado Trail crossing). Nice views of Antero and Yale.

(07/05/2011): Climbed from towers with Michael and Eli. Returned over Tigger. Beautiful weather, nice views.

SteveMarrLots of Talus  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 9, 1994


The date is a guess, but it was sometime before graduation. I can't remember the route we climbed, but there was a lot of talus and jumping from boulder to boulder. Fun climb, though.

It's a long trek from the TH up to the summit but worth the views!

Date Climbed: Jul 29, 2006


This was the climb that brought me back from a 3-year hiking hiatus. Unfortunately, I wasn't in very good shape then and we stupidly decided to hike from the Young Life Camp instead of driving up the road to the actual trailhead. Next time, however, I will get to the summit.

Date Climbed: Sep 13, 2008


The road up was no match for my rental Kia Rio, and the climb had just enough snow to get the shoes wet. Nice views especially of Antero!

Date Climbed: Aug 24, 2008


Hiked with Sarp, Paul and Manou. Pretty boring walk-up. Had to stop and turn around a couple of feet below the summit due to oncoming thunder storm. Not sure I will climb it ever again.

Late start almost cost me the summit. I stood at the memorial for the lightning victum and pondered whether I had time to summit or not. It did make me think twice.
