Great little hike! Maybe needs a little trail work in places so you don't miss the trail.

Great little hike with a striking summit! I loved the scramble up the fixed rope.

Pretty cool mountain, great views, cool terrain, but I do wish the trail was a little longer. Took longer to drive to trailhead than to hike round trip.

After a detour due to a missed switchback we turned around and spotted the fixed rope on our way back. Climbed up the rope and scrambled/hiked to the only summit we could find a route up to. I'm not sure which summit is the highest but the hike and view were great. I guess we'll go back and look for a trail up to the other summit. We built a cairn to try and point people toward the rope and I'll add a few pictures of the trail we took. The hike took us about an hour round trip, my hiking partner was an 11 year old and he did great other than having to be pushed over the rope ledge. A fun short hike but the rope ledge is probably around 8 feet high so be ready to brush up against some rock.

Took the "shortcut", which starts with the fixed-rope-assisted overhang at the bottom of the steep gully which leads to the saddle between the true high point and the more dramatic east point. It didn't really save any time, but it was more dramatic.

Having been up the more interesting but lower east summit (the one with the fixed rope), I came back to hit the true summit via the Class 2 ramps to the top. Good views of UN 10100 and surrounding peaks!

walk and summit scramble. Route finding can be a little tricky, but sticking to class 2 terrain will get you there.

After hiking Mt. Rosa we stopped off for this short hike/scramble. Took 45 minutes round trip- not bad!

This was a very cool little hike. We were looking for a short but fun outing for the day. (It is, afterall, football season, that hallowed time of year when I become The Football Widow). We loved the route-finding and scrambling on this peak. It's fun to sit on this summit and identify (or try to identify/guess) surrounding mountains. Hiking companion: Husband.

I forgot to send him a card, so this will have to do... I was planning to climb Mt Rosa, but the road was so snow packed that my Element couldn't make it up the grade. So after 5 miles or so, I turned around and headed back to the Broadmore - looking for any sign of a hiking trail along the way. I found one at the Forest Service kiosk/pullout and decided to follow it though I didn't know where it went. The forest was perfectly silent, the way it gets after lots of new snow.

I hiked or about 45 minutes until I spied the summit of St. Peter's through the trees. Not being familiar with the area, I had no idea what it was, but decided I was close enough to go fo it. I left the trail and over-landed straight for the top. That almost killed me. It was 20 degrees out, and the dry air just didn't seem to carry any oxygen for me. I was in no hurry though and eventually crawled onto the rocky summit section.

The fixed roped section was fun, especially with snow on the ledges. I cleared off the snow as best I could on the way up and, to help my descent. The summit was lovely. Great views, and though it was cold, there was no wind. I descended the way I came up and headed out, still not knowing what I'd climbed. In my rear-view mirror, I caught a glimpse of St. Peter's and noted how symmetrically lovely it looked. I made a mental note to look it up and try to climb it sometime... of course that was the mountain I did climb... by a new route I guess. It was 2,000 vertical feet from the car and about 2 miles.

Nice peak. The rocky summit section made it all worthwhile.

Took advantage of gorgeous sunny weather to bag this little summit, as well as the rock outcropping just east of the top. Saw one other couple on the trail, who couldn't find their way to the top. Neat scrambling on good rock!

This is a great little hike near CO Springs. The final scramble looks worse than it really is. I used to live a few miles from this area. It's beautiful.

Very interesting little peak indeed. There is a cool ladder leading up the rock to the lower, more dramatic rock outcropping. We wrapped around the north side to gain the highpoint amidst deep snow. Very cliffy on the north side!

Great views of the entire area. It was nice to see this side of Mt. Rosa and Rosa Cascade which is labeled on the Pikes Peak Atlas. I will be back to attempt to scramble up the rock outcropping below the summit in better weather.
