cftbqWest ridge from Kroenke Lake  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 15, 1976


This is another "catch-up" posting. Yale was my 3rd 14er. Uncertain about the exact date. Camped at Kroenke Lake, and hiked west to the Continental Divide in the morning, then south and east to the summit. It was chilly with very light snow falling. My brother bailed a few hundred feet from the top. I bushwhacked down the north slopes and got back to our camp about noon, then packed up and headed off for Harvard, while he headed down the trail and home.

This was the beginning of "Capacchino" climbing. We started climbing a midnight fueled by huge gzzlers of capachino. I recall hallucinating below the summit. Not too bad though. Skiing out with our backpack ready loads on skinny leather tele gear was exciting!

A pleasant and relatively easy hike. It was actually kind of nice to not be completely beat when back to the car for a change :) 26th 14er and 11th this year.

Started at dawn and summited in about 3 hours. What a leg burner! After having the summit to myself (on a Saturday!) for fifteen minutes I descended the east ridge and summited Mascot Peak as well - nice addition.

Not the easiest 1st 14er, but it was enough to get me hooked on peak bagging.

The weather cooperated, but I must say whoever "engineered" the trail for this route should have taken a refresher course on switchback use. Talk about straight up the mountain? Wow!

After a 3 hr 15 min hike I had the summit all to myself on a quiet morning before the storms. I ran most of the way down that good trail.

For my first 14er had a difficult time keeping up with my bro. The damn guy played soccer for a top ranking D-1 college and was intent on proving it on this hike. It was good to be pushed like that though. Today, I can keep up, especially when I put rocks in his pack.

Date Climbed: May 27, 2006


Solo climb. Not a technical climb by any stretch, but for some reason my legs were more tired over the 7 miles of the Southwest slopes than they typically have been on other 14ers. Regardless, there were great views from the summit, especially of neighboring Sawatch 14ers Princeton, Antero, Shavano, Tabaguache, Harvard and Columbia.

Coming from lowlander county this was a tough 1st 14er of 2006. Roach was right when he said it would test your legs. Mine are toast. What a great view from the summit!

The hike was longer than I initially thought, but not too bad. Climber with a large group so it took a little longer than it would have otherwise.

Date Climbed: Jul 3, 2002


The trail on is easy to follow and over hiked and not maintained. For a mid-week climb it was very crowded. There was one large group of kids with some young adult leaders on the trail. Several of the young boys were trying to haul ass up to the summit. It seams that their gas tanks rain low because on my way down having spent 30 minutes on the summit they were still another 45 minutes from the top.

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.

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...

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.
