BeginnerClimberRoute Climbed: Different than posted Date Climbed: 29 July 2005  Sucess!


Funny that I had done Rocky Mountain a couple of times before in June and July, but on the 29th, I was looking to summit Mount Manitou to the north. I had printed out a map from the InclineClub website which described some J-pipes sticking out of the ground. Guess they missed a J-pipe (it was missing from the map) and I got turned around. I ended up bushwacking Rocky Mountain from the north. Even though I had been up to the summit twice before, I didn't recognize it! Must have been too early in the morning, and besides, I had just sucked wind for 48 minutes on the Incline just before. Took pictures, and it wasn't until that night that I realized that I summitted Rocky Mountain again! Jeez. It's a great little mountain, though, and one I'll do again. Thanks for putting up a great web page!

I've done the incline many times. It's a great training spot. I've only been to the top of Rocky once, though.

thepluggerRoute Climbed: Both Incline Suffering and Barr Trail with Rocky Mt Bushwack Date Climbed: Sometime in the early 90's and on  Sucess!


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.

davebobk47Route Climbed: Via Incline Date Climbed: 10 June 05  Sucess!


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.

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.

Great day finding my to the top with my sister Carrie. For a 48 year old nun, she did a pretty good job.
