VIDEO - Join me on the summits of some Colorado 14ers!

Hi all!

The Decalibron Loop is a trail in the US state of Colorado. It is a series of FOUR 14ers (a mountain with an elevation over 14,000 ft) - Mt. Democrat, Mt. Cameron, Mt. Lincoln, and Mt. Bross. I burned over 4,000 calories on this hike and welcome you to join me on the summits of these powerful mountains.

Here is the video I made of my trip around Decalibron! As I mentioned in ...

Missouri this Friday

Anybody have any beta on the conditions around the collegiate peaks? I'm thinking about hiking Missouri this Friday. Anybody that is interested is more than welcome to join us Thursday night at the camp site and Friday. We are two slow flattlanders, so you're probably best on your own during the climb. Or, you could give us a 2 hour head start and we'll see you on the summit ridge. I'm kind of thinking the ...

PSA: Fall Creek/Notch Mtn Trail Closure

NOTICE: Per the Forest Service, the Fall Creek and Notch Mountain Trails are closed while a small fire is let to burn out. The fire is near the trail split at the bottom of the Notch Mtn Trail. Right now there are no plans to fight it, just let it burn, as its not impacting anything and appears to be protected from spreading by natural barriers.

This means you will not be able to hike ...

Massive&Elbert loop help

Group of 2 planning on tackling these two mountains the end of this month. But we totally plan on taking our sweet time and making it a 3 night/4 day type of trip. We DO NOT want to come back to the truck in the middle or between mountains.

Secondly, and this may sound dumb, we'd rather take the more isolated less-popular routes. We know these are popular choices for climbs, especially this time of ...

Hiking a 14er - which one, when?

Hi All,

I've been thinking of hiking up Pike's Peak "soon" but unable to commit to the plan because of some doubts (mostly regarding the wisdom of it for me). I hope to get some answers here in order to proceed, go elsewhere or something.

I am a hiker and not interested in, or knowledgeable about, technical climbing. I've been wanting to do a 14er for many years and have a fair idea of which ...
