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.

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

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!

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)

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

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.

I had climbed this peak 29 Jun 2003, and went back this time to help my granddaughter get her 5th 14er. We were slow, as it was her first 14er of the year, and because snow moved in as we approached the summit. But we made it, and enjoyed a sunny afternoon.

We skiied in and set up camp under a beautiful tree. I swear I felt a glow from spending time with something so old and strong.
Late climbed in summer with Ross Schnell, Dirk, Jim and Ben McClain.

Left Radio towers at about 6am and summitted at 9:30am. Very pleasant climb. Followed the trail right on top of the ridge once we reached the saddle and it was much more solid than the lower trail.

Climb "with brace" On!
