KruckGood snow travel  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 14, 2008

The final push after a long battle with lingering drifts on the approach was pleasant, with good travel snow from the foot of the hill at the saddle with the UN to the southwest to a few hundred yards below the summit. My wife caught a glisse down half the hill as I tried to foot-ski, for the most part unsuccessfully. Met an interesting fellow, Josh from 14ers.com, whom we climbed to the summit and back with from the saddle.

It was cold and windy, but not difficult. We snowshoed the whole route, including the rocky saddle. It looked like the skiing was amazing.

It was cold with some snow on the ground and got colder as the day went on. From St. Vrain we went over to Meadow Mountain. I've been back to summit three more times since then.

There was a descent amount of snow and wind on this climb - even for late October. I only saw a few other hikers this day and the solitude was welcome. I'd recommend you bag neighboring Meadow Mountain while in the neighborhood. The summit of St. Vrain offers great views south towards the Indian Peaks :)

A sweeping vista reward at the summit with a great view of the entire northern Indian Peaks wilderness. Plenty of isolation on these not-so-well-travelled summits makes this an ideal hike.

Climbed St Vrain in conjunction with Meadow. Not much visibility but ended up being a great conditioning climb with Jared. Great route with little avy danger.

Great late winter climb with a bunch of new snow!! This climb made a great combo with Meadow Mountain for Chris and I. St. Vrain would make an excellent ski decent with the right conditions.
