It was very crowded on the east ridge. We ascended into the clouds and has almost no view from the summit. This was my brother's first 14er. Pretty easy, but still very fun.

Arrived in Denver Saturday morning. Went up Quandry (2nd successful summit) with Mountain Girl Sunday AM for acclimation in preperation for Sawatch climbs later in the week. The trail was like a city sidewalk with all the hikers! Encountered 3 seperate herds of mountain goats on the way down - the most I have ever seen on a 14er.

Should have gone up the ridge. Try again with snow. Lots and lots of people but an early start will make a difference. A great day surrounded by fog and mist but when the clouds broke... cool stuff.

Nice hike on a really nice day. Would ahve to disagree with people that say this is the easiest 14er. I think Sherman and Bierstadt are both easier.

Ascended east slopes after being forced to descend on the west ridge due to ice a month ago. Only two people ahead of us, more than 50 behind us. Descended west ridge to find all snow and ice is melted out.

Found a mountain goat at the very summit. Think he was looking for the ski lift.

...than never. Really guessing about the actual date. Climbed it again in August 1995. My first fourteener in '75, and still my only winter one. My wife's third (I believe) when we climbed together in '95. East ridge route from Montgomery Res. TH the first time, same route from McCullough Gulch the second.

seth@LOKIEast Ridge- The Best Winter Climb  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 10, 2001

East Ridge Climb is great as it is wind swept and usually safe approach. I have skied this often picking through the rocks in the middle section. The Cristo is good in spring. Seeems like everytime I come back from doing the East Ridge, some idiots die on the Cristo. Don't get me wrong I love BC riding and pow...It's just not worth my life. beacons don't make you safe. Rdges help.

I spent most of the day post holing, which was really frustrating. I got through it and made it to the top. It was a nice and easy ski descent.

Nice trail for somebody like me who is new to fourteeners. Parking situation at Monte Cristo Gulch is really frustrating and the crowds can be overwhelming, but still a nice hike.

Date Climbed: Jul 2, 2006

PapaBanucci

My third fourteener and my 11-year-old son's second. We started at 5:40AM and were the second group on the mountain. We reached the peak by 9:00AM and spent 30 minutes on the top, the fourth group up there. On the way down we encountered probably 200 people. We were back to the trailhead a few minutes after noon. It started raining by 1:00PM. I would think a lot of folks got rained on. Like always, start early!

redd0019First 14'er  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 28, 2006

redd0019

Started at 6:45am with about 6 other cars in the parking area. The trail is a well beated path up to the talus field, which seems to go on forever. Had a brief spell of rain, which gave way to blue skies. Dark clouds threatened as we approached the summit with about 1,000ft to go, but blew over. Took us three hours to summit, keep in mind we're flatlanders from Minnesota. There was no snow to speak of on the East Slopes Trail, very windy and chilly up on top, stopped for about 20 minutes before heading back down. The wildflowers seemed to be in full bloom and we had great views on the way down. Total time up and down was 6 hours, which included a few stops and photo ops. Beta available online at the Arapahoe National Forest ranger station in Dillon, CO, on Hwy. 6 in Silverthorne and also online at their web site. Happy Trails.
