kronshage3Via Cristo Couloir  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 25, 2017


Started around 5AM. Took 2WD car about half way to the dam. 4WD certainly could have made it almost all the way to the dam. Couloir was kinda dry, but certainly climbable (no skiing for sure). Most of the snow was powder and did not require crampons 90% of the time. Near perfect day otherwise. Descended down east ridge back to car. Traction recommended on ridge. Back at car around 11:30AM.

kaylam87First Colorado 14er  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 11, 2017


My final hike during my week in CO, and my first CO 14er. Lots of people, but everyone was friendly. Saw a couple mountain goats and lots of pika. Had nice weather, breezy and cool at the summit. Took just over three hours to summit. Hopefully I can come back to Colorado soon!

Although we were some of the first people on top, the crowds were forming in a major way on our descent. Very crowded and relatively easy 14er. Saw some goats.

Climbed the standard route up the east ridge from Highway 9. There were several mountain goats up there. September is my favorite climbing month in Colorado and Wyoming. Happy Trails.

Date Climbed: Aug 13, 2016


Quick up and down, although my attempt at a speedy descent was hampered by the parade coming up the trail. Worst crowd I have ever encountered on 14er!

From Breck with LeeAnne and Susan. Susan's first 14er. Left trailhead at 0505hrs, summit at 0800hrs. Great weather, beautiful views, and plenty of goats! Broke most of my climbing rules, even held a hand!

Nice up and down. A little snow on top and a cool little summit marker. Breckenridge is the imaginary mountain town fairy tales are made from.

Date Climbed: Jun 25, 2016


Beautiful day and great adventure company from a girlfriend, so I cannot complain too much about the masses of humanity encountered up and down. Look forward to getting back sometime to go up a more challenging route. A couple apparently got married on top just as we arrived.

BLBonnetWas my first 14er  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 17, 2012


This was an awesome first climb! Managed to do it in a couple hours. I remember we didn't bring any proper hiking equipment so my father and I used sticks as trekking poles. Ran into lots of goats - they're pretty friendly. There were at least three or four false peaks on the way up.

Date Climbed: Aug 2, 2010


This was my first fourteener, I did it just a couple months after moving to Colorado. Very nice peak, if I were to do it again, I would try the class 3 route on the opposite side of the mountain.

Fun and straightforward climb, even in snow. Weather was perfect, and summit views were excellent. Solo climb only took four hours round trip. Trip Report

Did my first winter 14er ascent. Also wasn't acclimatized which turned it into an epic adventure. To warm to glissade :(
