markhyamsE Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 24, 1995


Did a big loop on this one, up the east ridge and down the other side. My one and only hitchhike in my life was that day, to get back to my car. Unfortunately it was snowing on top with no visibility. I hear there is a good view.

RMdaytripsgrlRoute: SW Slope  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 27, 2002


Started from Denny Creek with husband Chad on way back from visit to Crested Butte over Memorial Day weekend. (Like we needed that after three full days of camping/mtn biking/fishing?!) A short and sometimes annoyingly steep/loose trail...but a very pretty one. I remember one tricky & somewhat exposed snowfield section...

It took me 7 hours to reach the summit. Exceptionally windy and cold. I was the only one up there all day.

I took a couple of rocks and used them as brakes as I sledded down the massive snowfield on the West side. Natually, I got off trail and lost. I hiked down to the creek and followed it out to the road and walked back up the road a few hundred meters to the truck.

A very fun day.

Very nice mountain. Short, steep, and direct SW route. Nice class 2/3 summit ridge with fun blocks to scramble around. Good views of other Collegiate peaks.

Joined King Tone as he climbed his 1st 14er. Tougher than we expected but we made it. My 12th 14er.

My wife and I climbed this with our dog on our first wedding anniversary. It was colder than anticipated, but a great outing with excellent views. To the best of our knowledge, this was our adopted dog’s first 14er.

This climb was done in total darkness, with clouds completely socking us in. The route has changed quite a bit over the years, but is straight forward. The trail is well marked and easy to follow.

Camped at Collegiate peaks campground & got an early start. It was a nice hike throught the forest. Switchbacks above treeline were steep and grueling. Storms came in fast. We just got over the saddle ridge befor 80+ mph winds and hail hit. After 30 minutes made our way to the summit in high winds and snow/sleet mix. Lots of fast moving clouds limited visibility. It took 9 hours total. mostly because of conditions. Still a fun hike.

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.
