Camera Left on W. Needle Mtn. Aug.'14

We did the hike in to the lake slowly. Got tents up just before the storm hit us, about 2PM, August 24th. The rain set-in and only let-up about 8:30, long enough to eat and get settled for the night. Rain started again and didn't let-up until morning of the third day, keeping us totally tent-bound.
On P-excursions, we saw no fish rising. Needed an early start to get the summit before lightening began, but ...

Continental Divide Ridge climb from Berthoud Pass

Has anyone every done this in the Winter and come out at Devils Thumb ranch? It looks like it would be a beautiful climb and typically wind blown, but i am curious about the avalanche potential and if it can be done in the winter?

Mt. Harvard from the Colorado Trail

How long is the route to Mt. Harvard from the Colorado Trail? Later this year I'll do Harvard from the CT, not from a drive-in trailhead.

Any other comments about this route would be appreciated.

Best winter climbs in CO

I'm looking to do a climb next week. Any suggestions? Criteria below:

- not too far from Vail/Summit County area (2 hour drive, 1 hour drive is better)

- relatively low avy danger

- not Quandry or Bierstadt (I've done these in winter a few times)

- 13er or 14er preferred, but a great mountain of any height would work

Thanks in advance!

Missing Person - Payton Creek/Brookside Trailhead- Bailey CO

Payton/Brookside Trailhead ( 2miles outside Bailey)is the site where the car of a missing teen from Nebraska was found early November (missing notices were posted to the tree, thats how i found out about it) so decided to also post this here as this parking area is normally exclusively used by hikers, so perhaps someone saw something - for more info +contact details please look at the link

Looking for buddies for 11/29 14er! Looking for buddies for 11/29 14er!

This is absurdly late notice but... I'll be doing a 14er starting early tomorrow (11/29) morning and would love company!

This is my first winter 14er so I was going to keep it simple and stick to either Quandary or Evans, but am not opposed to taking a different route. The weather looks beautiful for both tomorrow. I'd ideally like to start at 5:30am or so and be back in Denver by mid-afternoon.

Any takers?

We are looking for a peak to climb at the end of November in Colorado. Looking for something not too snowy and not too

Hello all,

This is my first post here in the Colorado SP forum so bear with me. Myself and a friend from work will be attempting a climb of Torreys via Kelso ridge on Saturday morning. We are planning to drive to the Stevens Gulch TH tommorow night (10/24/14) and sleeping there in order to get an early start on the climb. This will be our first 14er and i think it's safe to say ...
