this was my first succesful 14ner and was a nice hike. We had great weather. Camped out along the way although would've been a good day hike as well.

Have done this route twice, once in summer of 2002 and once in 2007 shooting for the Ellingwood ridge, not finding the correct trail, so descending the north face couloirs. This remains my favorite Sawatch 14er. The North Face couloirs are some of the most beautiful in Colorado and I would love to do a multi-day across Ellingwood Ridge.

Praise to the Fourteener Initiative for all their work on the trail. It is among the most solid and well-defined I have encountered on a Class 2. Scenic trail: we saw 2 rainbows early in the a.m. and there were thousands (literally) of colorful mushrooms spotting the forest floor. The views were awesome too, of course.

In early spring, this route will really test your stamina, it is a killer when it is coverednin snow. I wonder if it is that hard in summer. Well worth it though.
