via Barr. Unintended stop along a SW hiking swing, but well worth it.

Just signing the log. Climbed Pikes several times in 2005 as training for Rainier. Awesome peak, but a bit weird to get to the summit and contend with the parking lot, heavy breathin' tourists, and the train!

Climbed many times, summer and winter solo ascents. But don't tear a ligament in your ankle when solo in the snow... it's a long painful hike out!!!

Barr trail to A-frame, and then summit. First one for me in my younger years. I believe it's what started it all for me. What great views.

After sleeping in the car waiting to have a fuel pump installed in Pueblo, I was joyous to get to Crags CG for a 4:50am start to Pikes. The summit boulder cone and mobs of people were offset by the creature comforts on summit.

We were in the Springs area, and decided to do an afternoon hike up from Devil's Playground. It made for a nice little hike, and we enjoyed the views...other than all the hundreds of people on the summit, who were also enjoying the views....
can't blame them! Great afternoon hike!

Took old Barr Trail all the way up and down. Made for a very long day. Summit was jampacked with tourists, most of whom were amazed at the hikers coming up from Barr Trail. Summit views were disappointing compared to those of the other 14ers. Probably my least favorite 14er hike thus far. I will definitely check out the Crags Route if I attempt Pikes in the future.

After some route finding issues 3 weeks prior, came back armed with GPS Waypoints. Started at Crags trailhead at 6am. Summited at 10am. Stayed on summit for 30 minutes and had a 3 hour hike back down. Arrived at car around 130pm. Still lots of snow up there.

Barr Trail -- overnight at Barr Camp -- Y couloir left branch -- joined another skier for the descent of Y -- and back down to Manitou. Fun, hard, beautiful, long, and incredibly rewarding.

Started below the Crags TH, summited, then down to the Barr Camp for the night. Had the honor of climbing with my usual partners, Alan and Robert. We had our snowshoes on for ~ 75% of the route. Great, but extremely long day. My third summit of Pikes.

My first 14er. Started at midnight and made the summit before noon. Had a bad experience though, while finishing the 16 golden stairs a few kids who had rode up with their parents were throwing rocks at us. Needless to say I had a few words with their parents. Otherwise a great hike, I'd like to come back in the winter

We got a late start so didn't expect to summit but wanted to see how far we could get. We turned around just past the A-Frame cabin because of the heavy snowfall and we couldn't follow the trail due to all the fresh snow.

Crags route. Solid on the ascent, hip deep postholes in the slush, even while wearing snowshoes, on the descent. It could have been so much worse without them! Beautiful day, but a long one for my early-season fitness level. Parked at Mennonite Camp, no vehicle was going past the first turn-out 1/4 mile above that. Hot cocoa at the top was a plus :-)

I have done Pikes Peak 6 times so far 2 from Barr trail. The first time i spent the night at barr camp where you can get dinner and more for just a few $$$. I've hiked the whole Barr trail up and back but that is a very long day if you are going to hike Barr trail in one trip it's best to start about 3 or 4 am. And the rest from the Crags camp ground. most were summer hikes. Sierratrekkin (rob) and i did it nov. 05 damm that was a windy day 60 plus winds.
