I moved to Glenwood Springs and it's impossible to ignore this peak, I'm glad I got it done.

Climbed it with Marco. We camped in the parking lot among the mooing cows. I had pitched my tent nearby, but a herd of cattle came into the parking lot around sunset, so I decided to take down my tent and sleep under the stars next to the car. They were mooing as loud as they could, you could hear it echoing off the mountains. ~5AM start, and we were planning on just being satisfied with East Sopris only, but we made good time getting there, and the weather looked good, so we quickly tagged West Sopris, then took a short break back on East Sopris before heading down. It was a tough day, but it was worth it, and good prep for bigger climbs next weekend.

Climbed both summits via the trail from Thomas Lakes. Have admired this peak for years, it was nice to finally stand upon its summit and admire the view!

Climbed Sopris on the 4th of July. What a great time. July 3rd at the lakes, where are rowdy neighbors made it a fun evening. Only summitted the eastern summit... we'll be back for the other.

I have been on Sopris a couple times. Got to summit and ski the peak this spring. We skinned up the main bowl off to the looker's left of the center summit. Great trip. Good skiing conditions. Unsupportive snow on the way out made for a difficult exit.

Four years in a row I climbed this mountain on the anniversary of my husband's death. He was killed by a drunk driver in 1997. I later started exploring other mountains.

I went with my usual IU hiking companions. We almost turned around in the middle of the hike because it was so windy and cold. Luckily Dennis had some fantastic cookies that he shared with us, and we managed to get a little more inspiration to keep going. It's a good thing we summited, because it was perfectly clear, and this mountain had great views at the top.

Standard route from TH. A formidable 12er. Both summits. Couldn't have wished for a better day. Kinda creepy that there is cell phone reception at the top. I will always love this mountain and it will forever be one of my favorites!

Bushwhacked up from the Crystal River (~6600’) to the west bowl and then cramponed up dust covered snow to the west summit. It was an awesome experience on a wild mountain!

We climbed the standard summit and didn't go on to the west summit. Had a wonderful ice pellet storm in the tent the day before. Nice to get out of Minnesota's heat and humidity.
