Fleshj27Angry Mountain Gods  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 4, 2011


Went total cheeseball and drove to the summit. Stepped out of the car and promptly sprained my ankle on a rock--first painful hiking injury I've ever had. Next time I'm hiking; it's gotta be safer!

LivingColoradoFirst 14er, first backpacking trip.  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 2, 2000
The trip that finally made me a true Coloradan! :) It was both my first 14er and first backpacking trip (well, second, techincally - I backpacked up to Barr Camp a couple weeks prior, woke up the next morning to find it was the wknd of the PPA/PPM, so didn't summit that time around). Have been up several times since, including a PPA finish in 2005.

Date Climbed: Jun 10, 2010
Grew up next to this mountain, and it took having a friend fly in from New York to finally get up. We climbed on north side via the crags route. Had lots of fun!

Went via the Craggs, long walk, honestly not the most impressive hike I have ever been on.

nathanielBarr Trail  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 19, 2010


We hiked the Barr trail after we got out of class at about 1200 and got started about 1300. It was hotter than hot that afternoon. Stayed about 1/2 mile past Barr Camp and made it to the top the next day and walked back down.

zxstarlingRespect  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 1, 2001


I didn't hike the entire route from the bottom but I did make it to the summit. I was 13. Got lost on the way up. Panicked. Great experience for instilling respect for the mountains on a young kid.

CastillejaMiniataSame as Wawa.  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 29, 2011


Same as Wawa below me. Magnificent, challenging northeastern-ish approach. Perhaps as high as 50 degrees (temperature, not slope) at the summit.

LadyWawaNortheastern Class 3 Route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 29, 2011


I took the Barr Trail in and then scrambled up some ridiculously dangerous and seemingly discarded Northeastern Class 3 route above treeline. There were some old cairns, not many. Not recommended in winter. Came down the much safer Barr Trail.

What we climbed might have been part of the Rumdoodle approach.

Never, NEVER before had I climbed a peak before and bought a souvenier on the summit at the gift shop! : ) WTF?
