Route Climbed: Both Incline Suffering and Barr Trail with Rocky Mt Bushwack Date Climbed: Sometime in the early 90's and on
The first time I did Rocky Mountain was with a Denver CMC group. We did a combination of this one and Mt Manitou together one Spring as a conditioner hike at that time. Since then I've climbed to the summit of Rocky Mountain innumerable times both as a conditioner and sometimes just for the fun of it. Great view from the top, especially of Pikes Peak. I'll have to dig in my photo archives to add more.
Route Climbed: Via Incline Date Climbed: 10 June 05
Started incline 0530, completed in approx 45 minutes. Took break at top then continued to Rocky Mountain Summit in approx 20 more minutes. Very narrow trails, seem to be rarely used. Last few feet scrambling up rocks, amazing views although it was very cloudy and cool. Saw a mule deer on way to summit.
Route Climbed: Barr Trail Date Climbed: Feb 14, 2004
Climbed this via Barr Trail to No Name Creek (8.5 miles and 3500' gain), then up the road to the experimental forest area. I ended up missing this turnoff and going up Barr about a mile too far. Did Manitou first, then postholed across the broad ridge to Rocky's summit. I will have to come back and do the more exciting sub-summits. Nice views up there.
