boisedocfun walk  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 14, 2012


pleasant walk from Crags campground. Got to watch the bikers race up the highway. I was up there 35 years ago also but took the cog railway on that trip

Date Climbed: Jul 2, 2001
Lots of tourists arrive in Colorado Springs and think "Let's climb Pikes Peak!" Only to be pummeled for 13+ miles straight up. Friends don't let flatlander friends climb 14ers!

So what if it's easy, I like hitting the majors! Funny thing was, other than a guy trying to mountain bike up (painfully slowly) I was only one on the trail that day and it's supposed to be a busy mountain. The parking lot at the top was hoppin' though!

Little did I know the bug that it would plant in me for climbing mountains. Reclimbed every year since.

Climbed this one solo. This was an enjoyable hike spent the night in Barr Camp. Weather hit on day 2. Long hike, but there was not as many people as I expected...except on the top.

Date Climbed: Jul 14, 2009


Can't say I technically climbed the mountain. Rode the cog rail with all 15 of my family members. They are not climbers, so it was fun to share in the moment with them.

Date Climbed: Dec 24, 2010


Hiked the Crags route, started in darkness. First one on the summit that day, so I won all the accolades of the train riders.

Pikes Peak was my last Front Range 14er. I climbed with my CMC BMS instructor, Robert. We had planned to climb the Eolus group this weekend, but the weather was not looking good out there. We camped the night before, started at 6AM, summited at 10, nabbed Devils Playground summit and Teller County Highpoint, and arrived back at the parking lot arount 2:45PM. The weather was OK: pretty cloudy but it did not rain or snow on us. Lots and lots of tourists at the summit.

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.
