Route Climbed: East Ridge Date Climbed: March 27, 2004
Went out for a trailrun on Easter Sunday (not knowing it as such) and was nearly to the top of SAnitas before I realized I was heading toward the top. Great hike with yet more great views of Boulder and the Front Range.
I'm ashamed to admit that, after 1.5 years in Boulder, this is my first time up Sanitas. Great little hike. Reasonably rough, but short and with great views. We watched the snows moving east on the ascent and they hit just as we summitted. Our descent through the open valley was marked by picturesque snow and foggy views to the south. Very nice. I'll return and use this as a training climb.

I have hiked this mountain many many times - probably have done every combination and order of the trails. Great place to go after work to get a great workout in, or early season training when the trails at higher elevation are still under snow. Be prepared for lots of people and dogs and runners.
