Date Climbed: Jun 28, 2015
My first 14er and I'm instantly addicted. Hiked the East Ridge taking 2.5 hours to summit and 2 hours on the return. There was some snow at the top but didn't need microspikes. Great views!

Conditions were superb, not too many folks on this trail even though it was a Saturday. Very little wind, great temps!

over 300 people on the trail today. Very easy trail to travel on and follow, a little steep at the end though.

The final push to the upper east ridge was brutal, but overall this is a fairly easy 3k+' of elevation gain. Was within 10 feet of several different goats and could almost touch one on the way down...they're completely desensitized to human presence! I can imagine the views are stunning on a clear day, since they were still great with rain storms rolling in today!

A long trail, but not challenging. Climbed several times in summer.

Difficult to find the trail in the snow pretty often and it was getting late/I was under the weather before I could finish. Will see if there are any improvements this February.

First time I climbed it was in 2007. Fun to do in early spring and ski most of the way back down.

Kelly and I started hiking up on compacted snow. The day was cloudy and windless.

Kelly got AMS just 20 minutes below the summit. So she started heading down while I ran up to the summit. Spent two minutes at the top, and I headed back to catch up with Kelly 5 minutes later.

Date Climbed: Mar 5, 2008


The day started off beautifully. No wind and mild temps. quickly dissolved into high winds, snow, and bone chilling cold. My Brother and I were accompanied by the "Quandray Dog." A little yellow lab mix that had alot more spunk than my Brother or I could ever muster in such crappy conditions. He was a little annoying at times, but overall kept the moral level high enough to trudge to the top!

dpkicy blast on summit  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 17, 2007


1:20 a.m. wake-up call = way too early
12 falls on slippery ice = sore rear-end
1 bent aluminum treking pole - easily fixed

Being 1st to sign the summit registry = priceless

Tried to get two of my friends from Nashville up and the altitude got them before they could get to the top. Thank you Gore for the best garments in the outdoors! 80 mile an hour winds with a -15 degree windchill and colder at times, Gore-Tex rocks! So does Merino wool! Great easy winter ascent though. Give her a shot.

Poor Climber

It was a nice hike. Pretty day, with some late thunderstoms. But I manage to get down before the storms came in. But the endless scree, and a herniated disc made things a bit more difficult.
