I climbed with my brother/SP member Woodie Hopper. Great summit day.

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.

Started up at 7:10AM on a very nice trail through the trees, the wind started just above tree line. Heavy gusts at the saddle near the summit ridge. Reached the top at 9:55 stayed about 15 mins (too windy), got back down to the TH at 12:28PM. My 21st 14'er.........sweet!!

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.
