Big Skies 808

Climbed with NE ridge with kalet. It was bomb. Lots of fun exposure, big cliff dropoffs. Even though the rock is loose I like the ledges that form as a result.

Second time up this magnificent mountain... I doubt it will be my last! Had the good company of fellow SP member Natasha and her friends, as well as one of my best friends that introduced me to climbing 12 years ago! What a great day, incredible weather, breathtaking fall colors and fun climbing!!!!

Climbed with my wife Kate. The weather was beautiful and we did not see another sole on the entire mountain.

The route was pretty uniteresting until the beginning of the ridge. It was easy to follow and what little snow remained did not cause any problems. We found some fun solid scrambling on the green rock of the Green Coulior.

Incredible day! Fun climb, perfect weather, and beautiful views in every direction. The Aspen were in their peak color change. Pyramid has become one of my favorite summits.

A challenging mountain, but if you do not get off route the class 4 moves are minimal. We avoided the steep part of the pale green wall coming down. Tremendous views and an airy summit!

With Martin Nagel, his third 14er. This was one of the most fun climbs I've been on. The scenery is beautiful, and seems to change every few minutes, as does the climbing. I didn't find the new route nearly as hard as I expected it to be (based on older descriptions). The new trail that's going in will make it easier to find the way up to the basin.

Nice trip but I'd rate the new std green couloir route only class 2 with occasional short class 3 - sort of defangs the mountain somewhat.

Pyramid is a lot of fun. I thought the climbing was straight forward and not too difficult despite having no rock climbing expirence. 3h25m up, 2h25min down. 47th 14er!

Did not summit that trip but a fun time nonetheless. The talus and scree approach to the ampitheater sucked, but from there it was a good climb. I had to turn back becuase there was too much snow still on the ledges and I was only carrying water, no ice axe or anything.

This climbs difficulty is overrated and won't exceed Class 3 if you pay attention to where you are walking I climbed this with asphazell

I love this mountain. It is a hard approach, but the last 1000 feet are pure BLISS, just keep your ears sharp and your eyes open for the unrelenting rockfall from above. Snow storm came in 5 minutes after the summit was attained, so that really kicked in the adrenaline! I will climb this one again for sure...

Light intermittant snow fall in the clouds blowing by. Man it's great to be on top of a fourteener again. One of our party got altitude sickness on the way up, and we ended up getting caught in the rain and hail on the way down. Everybody made it back safe though. Great climb. We met some people on our way up that climbed up a "Southwest Coulour?" route.

One of the more fun mountains out there, but climbing two steep couloirs was kind of a pain! The last part is well worth it...unless a guy above you kicks a rock the size of a refrigerator down on a party of 12 below him. I was watching this from just above the narrow ledge and it was pretty scary - thankfully, everyone got out of the way. Watch out for loose rocks, but don't forget to have fun.

Wow was this steep! That last section coming down was not fun. The section above the saddle was a blast and the views at the top were fantastic. Thought the danger/exposure factor was a bit over-hyped as the climbing was pretty straighforward.

Met at the park and ride at 2am and where on trail at 5am. The climb up was very steep and challenging. Routefinding was pretty simple and the climbing up the ridge was very exciting and fun. We hit the summit at 10am and the views from the summit of the Bells, Snowmass and Capital were amazing. This was my 51st 14er and now I just have Capital, Culebra, and Pikes left!!! woohoo
