Date Climbed: May 17, 2009


Wife, dog and I via the East Ridge. Great climb and we saw no one else all day. Headed over to Mascot and then preceeded to have a miserable descent. Shoulda followed the east ridge of Mascot back to the trail rather than heading south!

With Ian and Jeremy; A more "airy" ridge than I expected, but still very enjoyable.

Chris, Marni and Turbo up the East Ridge from Avy Gulch trailhead. Camped at CT junction for the night and summited at 9:10am. Really fun route, just a little loose for the doggie.

Tried to get up by the east ridge, but a late start and slow-going got us caught up in a lightning storm.

slkrrFirst attempted 14er
Date Climbed: Aug 15, 1989


My first attempt at a 14er, back when I was 15. We tried to go up the old Denny Gulch route (before it was closed), but got turned back above timberline by ominous weather. Twenty years later, I still haven't been back, but I will eventually get this one!

shknbkeDenny Creek both times  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 15, 2009


3/27/04-The first time was in light snow on a very cold, early spring day. We went straight up the wind scoured glade at treeline to avoid avy risk.

2/15/09-Had a nicer day nearly 5 years later via the same route. Traversed over to Mascot and descended s.e. ridge of Mascot, which is not recommended with a bunch of unconsolidated snow! See TR.

Date Climbed: Apr 16, 2006


4/16/06 - Standard route from Denny Creek. Stomach deep postholing in wet spring snow made for very slow going. Made an out and back trip to "Mascot" from Yale before heading down.

2/15/09 - Winter ascent via Denny Creek TH, slight modification to standard summer route to avoid avy slopes. Traversed to "Mascot" and descended to the Avalanche Gulch TH (had a car shuttle set up).

The southwest ridge was pretty much snow free and the lack of wind on the summit was nice :)

Drove from Crested Butte to climb this and then drove back, so the hike isn't very long.

Date Climbed: Aug 31, 2008


Solo hike on a partly cloudy day with many hikers on the trail. The steep hike to the saddle was rewarded with a really fun scramble to the summit. Great view of Harvard and Columbia. Misty rain on the way back but no thunder or lightning. 11th fourteener.

haytraciSuper Day Out  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 26, 2008


Yale's ascent was absolutely gorgeous, but very steep in the last couple of miles. The gentle grade during the first portion is deceiving; although knowing the elevation gain, the push to the top was expected. And, again...how did Disser get lost???
