Started really early (woke up at the campsite around 3:45 am) but it was well worth it. Saw the sunrise at 14,000!

Scrambled up the ridge from where the Colorado Trail passes by. A nice side trip, although my stashed thru-hike pack was chewed on by a marmot while we were heading up.

Nice climb on a cool September morning. Bluebird day with a chilly breeze at the top. Left TH at 6:40 and reached summit 10:05, lots of nice fellow hikers on the trail.

I made the mistake of going trail running two days before this hike. Ouch. The whole way down was torture. Nice peak, though.

A relatively easy Sawatch 14er with a pleasant few first miles through the trees followed by a steep grind up to the summit ridge. The ridge required more talus-hopping and scrambling than I had expected, which made it a ton of fun. Easily the best part of the hike.

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.

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!

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.

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).
