RMdaytripsgrlY via overnight @ Barr  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 29, 2009


HUGE recent slide in the gully leading up to the Y. Looked like railroad had also recently slid. Interesting conditions in the Y, the right side was almost bare ice because it had slid. The left was wind loaded with a little bit of slab action. Had to stay on the left branch because a lot of slough off the right wall in the sun. A little sketch, but way fun, and a nice first summit of '09 a$$ kicker! Nice weather, NOBODY on top - until the train pulled in..:)

Date Climbed: Feb 4, 2005


2/4/05 - From Crags Campground. My first winter summit!

5/2/09 - Y Couloir with an overnight stay at Barr Camp. A long and physically demanding route, but worth it for a climb of this classic couloir. It rained in Colorado Springs the whole time but we had lovely weather above the clouds.

shknbkeY Coulier "middle" branch  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 2, 2009


This was my 4th trip up the Y and we found the best conditions yet. A wet spring in the Front Range has brought prime conditions. Our goal was the elusive right branch, but it was too icy w/o a 2nd tool. We retreated and went up the middle branch, which was my third time up it.

mattpayne11Backpacked up to the A-frame  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 15, 1995


In retrospect, backpacking to the a-frame was insane. On the way down I slightly tore my achilles heel and then two weeks later I had two-a-day football practices... Good times!

McCannsterBarr Trail  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 15, 2009


Overnight at Barr Camp, then went for the summit. Gorgeous day, minimal wind, and stupid tourists walking around on top. I didn't spend too much time on the summit, but the east slopes of this peak remind me of Mt. Massive.

shknbkeVia West Fork/descend Crags  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 7, 2009


I have a goal of climbling Pikes in every month via a variety of routes. The West Fork is a gem. I would say it is the most scenic approach next to Bottomless Pit. We took advantage of the dry winter with a long winter day. I would highly recommend this as a loop route with descent of the Crags, but there is some private property to avoid. See TR.

I cheated and drove to the top when I was stationed at Peterson AFB, CO. If I were there again, I would hike Barr Trail.

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.

Clark_GriswoldDissappointed on a 14er  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 28, 2008


I took the Devils Playground approach from the Crags Campground. I like the trail, the mountain and the views, but the summit experience left me displeased. I'm not used to all the people and it felt like Disney World on top.
