Choose to do the incline today, left my usual heavy training pack at home and just brought the camelback. Made it to the top of the incline in 40min and thought I'd just summit Rocky mt. while i was at it. Made it to the summit from the bottom of the incline in one hour! Beautiful views of Cameron Cone, that my next one! incline down halfway to Barr trail. All in all a two hour trip

Up the incline, summitted the eastern false summit (fun class 4!), then the true summit, bushwhacked over and up to Mt. Manitou, then looped back around and back down the incline. A great day! Stellar views of the peak today- very clear! :-)

What a blast! After bushwacking up to the saddle we tagged the official highpoint, added some layers and had some lunch. Then we headed over to "Mount Rebar". We had to leave the poor whimpering dog down below, but scampered up this outcrop in a roaring wind! We sat on this outcrop for a while taking in the views. This is definitely one of my favorite local summits! Don't even think about visiting this mountain without a trip to the "rebar" highpoint. The beauty of the sandy, boulder-studded summit area combined with the excitement of the "Mount Rebar" scramble totally make this a wonderful day. Strange weather day, though, with an inversion pattern making it cold, foggy * snowy down below and warmish and sunny at the summit. Hiking partner: Deb. Dog: Stimpy.

Did Barr Trail to the Experimental Forest turnoff, then summited Mount Manitou. Relaxed and took a little nap (that was wonderful!) after which my dog Keisha and I took the trail over to Rocky Mountain. Another beautiful view, and I took the time to mark the trail at the top a little better.

BeginnerClimber6th climb (1st with the dog)  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 16, 2008

BeginnerClimber

This is my 6th climb of Rocky, but set a couple of firsts. This was my first summit of Rocky with my dog Keisha, and the first time I'd done both Manitou (5th summit) and Rocky Mountain at the same time. To top it off, we did the Incline in about 54 minutes. Still getting in shape for the year!

Great time, just little bit of wind, lots of sun! Should be back a few more times this year.

My wife and I headed out for a jaunt up Barr Trail, turned right at No Name Creek and made our way to the top.

Hit Rocky Mountain by accident while aiming for Manitou Peak from the saddle between the two. Realized my error at the summit and corrected the situation. Thats about it for Rocky Mountain.

I'd wanted to do this for some time, but didn't know how long it would take. Gorgeous weather in the morning made the Incline a breeze (39 min.) Another 28 minutes sufficed to get me to the summit, via Eagle's Nest--which provided the days best (Class 3?) scrambling. Should have taken my camera.

BeginnerClimberSnow climb  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 25, 2007

BeginnerClimber

This is my 5th ascent of Rocky Mountain since June 05.

Did the Incline this afternoon under gorgeous blue skies. Though the Incline was icy at the bottom and snowy at the top, I found myself greeting 15-20 people along the way. Strangely, I found the route up Rocky Mountain easy to follow. Not 100% sure if it was an animal trail (there were several criss crossing along the way and couldn't tell if the LARGE prints were human -- snow was melted a bit) but what was certain was that no one had been to the top in at least a month since the trail didn't go to the top. Didn't have snowshoes so I postholed quite a bit but the going wasn't too difficult. Ran down to the Barr Trail (via the top of the Incline) after a break, then walked/jogged down to the car. Had a great time!

Great workout climbing those switchbacks up Rocky Mountain. Always love the view from up there. Next time, I'll do the incline.

I sometimes go up to the top of the incline using Longs Ranch Road. It puts you almost at the summit of Rocky Mountain. The only time i got all the way up, there was fog below, but I could see Pikes Peak above me. Truly lovely summit. On the way down i bushwacked towards Mt. Manitou and hit Longs that way and then back.

Great route if you don't want to see anyone. Longs is very steep.

Summited from Mt. Manitou. The farthest southeast summit was really fun with a difficult finish to actually stand on the summit boulder. A Class 4 move with 15' or so of exposure. Great fun!

My 9-year old and 12-year old have been bugging me to take them hiking, so I took them to Rocky. We had originally planned on doing the Barr Trail route, but after they saw the Incline, they wanted to do that. Took them an hour and 20 minutes, but after a break at the top of the Incline, they were ready to make the summit. Great climb and it was my kids' first summit!

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.
