Day-hiked the Barr Trail. Great hike but what an ugly summit!

Celebrated my dad's 60th birthday by camping at Glen Cove, then ascending the bowl to join the NW Slopes route en route to the summit. He did great despite a few inches of fresh August snow above 13k'

Date Climbed: Jul 25, 2009

I live in the plains and my knees are a curse so I hike quite a bit slower than most at high altitude. Started at the Barr trailhead with my brother and sister at Midnight. Reached the summit at 11:30. Headed back down at 12:15 only to dodge a thunderstorm and duck into the A-Frame at treeline for about an hour. Continued down the Barr trail back to the trailhead by 7pm for a total hike time of roughly 19 hours. The most brutal yet memorable hike of my life!

First attempt at drive up was unsuccessful when kid drove off the top trying to kill himself. Road was closed right in front of me! Had to come back the following day to summit. Pics at http://www.willhiteweb.com/colorado_climbing/14ers/driving_pikes_peak_198.htm

Can't say I'm really proud of this one, but at least we did Longs Peak the right way the following day.

Hiked up the Barr Trail with my brother. We started at 4:15 and made it to the summit at 10:15. The hike down the Manitou Incline was extreme.

Quite a long route, and it doesn't help your tiredness when people jump out of their car to greet you at the top!

HokieJim

Ascended right side of the bowl out of Glen Cove and traversed over to the NW Slopes route at Devils Playground. Nabbed Little Pikes on the way up and Devils Playground Peak on the way down. Didn't intend to summit Pikes but was too enticing from the top of Little Pikes. 10.6 miles and 3050' vertical for a fun day.

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

RMdaytripsgrl

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..:)

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

shknbke

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.

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!

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.
