Longer than expected hike, summited at 1130 in the midst of thunderstorms all around. Did not have a chance to see much of the view from the top.

did not see this one coming. long, tedious ridge with lots of boulder hopping and obstacle dodging. dropped down to the mascot saddle and had to tree hop throught the woods to avalanche gulch. good fun......wouldn't trade it for the world.

shansenRoute Climbed: East Ridge / Descent East Flanke Date Climbed: July 29, 2005  Sucess!


On a beautiful summer day with no afternoon thunderstorms, conditions are perfect for a fun ridge run. No snow on the route, and we descended the curving east flank (which drops towards the kroenke lake route saddle and then bends due east) and then dropped down the aspen filled gully to the lake to regain the standard route.

Left at 4:00 AM. Reached Kroenke Lake at sunrise. Beautiful view. Overshot the trail up to ridge. Renamed Point 13,605 to Ball Point in honor of my alma mater, Ball State University. Our acedemic standards were much lower than Yale! Made the mistake of traversing the south slope to summit. Stay on the ridge to avoid very loose scree. Met Meagan Emmons mother on top. Her daughter holds the record for the youngest to summit all 54 peaks at age 7. Descending the East ridge, which was much safer than western approach. Completed the loop to Silver Creek Trailhead. Long day...11 hours of hiking, but well worth it at the end of the day.

gorgeous day... trip report to come. Wow, I liked the super-steep straight up section on this mountain. I made summit in about 3 hrs, some others I talked to in about 4.

Great climb, one of my favorite 14ers thus far. Great views from the summit, fun scrambling from the saddle to the summit. What looked to be a rainy day cleared up and was beautiful. 6.5 hours total time.

WOW! What an amazing day to climb! There was not a cloud in the sky! It was a WARM hike, and we spent 2 hours on the summit! There's nothing like a beautiful kick back day on the summit of a mountain with good company:-) The glassade down was incredible! Very smooth, good speed, and had fun belly-flopping and going backwards!

Fun Climb. Did more on the legs than I expected. Best part is from the saddle to the summit, the rock hopping is great. Sweet view from summit

Solo Trip - Steeper than I expected, but a great hike. Reached the summit by 11am and still got caught in rain, thunder, and lightning above and below treeline. Wow, that thunder rocked me! Good times!

My sixth Fourteener. It was the most spectacular view I've ever seen from the summit of a fourteener. It was a beautiful day for the aspens to. A great climb that's well worth the more than 4,000 ft. of climbing.
