kavakVia Devils Playground  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 24, 2004


I took a friend from Idaho up the road to Devil's Playground. Since the rocks in that area are the high point of Teller County, we did that first and then on up to Pikes Peak. It was fitting first 14er for her.

silversummitBeen up there 2x


on the cog rr. The first trip was with my son who was too little to hike up and the second was this past summer when I was with a group and we only had three hours to spend there. I am determined to hike the next time I am in Colorado Springs even if it takes me two days!

PivvaySummit from Crags in the clouds  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 10, 2008


This was our 3rd trip to the mountain (2 winter attempts, 1 summit for me) and our first summit with Chris and Marni together for #15 (and Turbo #13). Low clouds all the way made the Devil's playground really cool although we hurried for the 3 miles or more above treeline before storms started booming. Long day as we hiked 5 miles extra at the start up to Crags and on the dirt road because I'm an idiot.

PivvayFirst Winter 14er Summit  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 22, 2007


Climbed with Rob. Started Friday night late after work and topped out early Saturday AM via the Barr Trail in plenty of new snow and wind. Lots of fun in a small storm. Weather started to clear out on our way down and the sun came out.

chicagotransplantLast ranked 14er  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 9, 2008


Climbed solo via the Crags with "Devils Playground Peak". Met my family (who drove) at the summit to celebrate my final ranked 14er in Colorado. We had taken the Cog up when I was 16 months old, so this was a fitting ending to this chapter of my climbing. Definitely the weirdest summit experience with all of the tourist facilities up top.

thehansLONG  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 6, 2008


Hiked up the Craigs and then descended the Barr Trail. The Barr trail lasts forever and most of it is in the trees. Very bad descent. I hate the Barr Trail.

BeginnerClimberCrazy day at altitude  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 29, 2008


For the first time in seventeen 14er summits, I got altitude sickness, and I got it BAAAAD. Was feeling horrible, getting very sick on trail above 13000ft, and actually collapsed on the trail. Eventually made it up with the help from some friends (THANK YOU!!!)

Not surprising, though, I summitted Huron Peak the very next week and had no issues whatsoever. Soooo, hiking Pikes for the second time (first time back in July, 05) and getting altitude sickness must've been a fluke.

fridayMy Daughter and I's first 14'er  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 22, 2008


I climbed this with my 11 y/o daughter from the parking lot at the Devil's Playground. We got off to a very late start, after 1 PM. Since both her and I were not acclimated to this altitude, we were moving a slow pace. Whenever we did take breaks, I was usually occupying myself with fixing/enlarging some of the rock cairns. But when we noticed lightning starting to crack off in the distance, we attempted to make a lot faster pace. With lightning seemingly getting closer, we were very delighted to see my wife's SUV waiting in the parking lot.

WyoNativeSummited via Crags Campground  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 21, 2008


Absolutely GREAT hike with amazing views..... I had a plane to catch out of Denver at 8 pm that evening, but ended up summiting and descending with plenty of time to spare. Left trail head at 9 am, summited at 1220 pm, returned to trail head by 230 pm. No wind at the summit.....Clouds were building as I descended. There was minimal snow on the trail. Perfect conditions!
Summited again with my husband 8/18/08.....This time, conditions were not as nice......Heavy fog and snow near the summit hid the upper trail on the Crag Route, and we ended up summiting via the road.

thebeave7Run up the Barr  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 8, 2008


Got a late start from the Barr Trail TH, just before 9a. Cruised up the incline(boy is that thing steep), and up the Barr Trail. Trail conditions are great, very minimal snow, two 100ft patches at 13K, then small spotty patches from 13500ft to the summit. Clouds swirled all day, but nothing too threatening after the morning wind storm(60mph+). Made it in just over 6h RT.

Date Climbed: Jun 7, 2008


Jim and I led a church trip of 12 people up the Crags route- 7 of them Summited a 14er for the FIRST-TIME! There were 20-30 mph sustained winds with gust of 40-45 at times which was crazy, but we still all summited and had a blast! This time (my 4th time summiting Pikes) I ate fries at the top:-)

Hiked to Barr Camp Friday evening and camped. Left camp at 5:30 a.m. and summited at 11:00 a.m. and then made the trek back to the trailhead. 25 miles kicked my butt. Lots of snow and wind after 10,000 feet.

shknbkeY Couloir Part III  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 19, 2008


The Y is one of my all time favorite climbs and this was my 3rd trip up it. I think we're going to make this an annual tradition. Pikes hasn't had much snow this year, so we hit it early. The right branch measures out at 45 degrees at it's steepest and will be in for probably just a few more weeks unless there are some late storms.
