nannerbotsCar climb  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 4, 2016
Well worth taking the time to park and hike (about a mile round trip). Saw a large herd of deer to the east and there were great views all around.

damgaardFirst CO summit for me  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 18, 2015


30 min roundtrip from the road. Cold and windy but great views. Felt a bit dizzy since I flew in from Copenhagen (=sea level) the day before.

JLuthanenFirst CO summit  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 27, 2014


Easiest work for the second tallest peak I've bagged this year. Views off the non road side were fantastic - drastic cliffs drops. Fun quick hike!

Nice views of Mummy Range and Never Summer Range. Those approaching dark clouds above the peaks looked surreal!

Got a late start today due to mechanical issues, and squeezed in this summit just before the storms hit. Hung out on the summit 'til approaching storm clouds chased me off. Dynamite views from this peak, plus saw two mighty huge bull elk near the mountain on the drive out. Was good to get back on Trail Ridge Road, it had been a few years.

Easy, fun, and great views. Not a cloud in the sky, chilled on top for like a half hour, peaceful.

I went to Sundance with my CMC BMS instructor, Matt, to practice some snow climbing in the couloirs north and east of the mountain. We went up and over the summit, then east and down into the cirque. We were gonna go up the northernmost of the east facing couloirs, but the snow conditions were not copacetic, so we climbed right back up the north facing slope, then back over the summit again on the way to the car. The park service just opened the road about a week ago, so there's still a fair amount of snow up on Trail Ridge.

After being turned away from Snowdrift by a ranger due to a fire on the west side I decided to make the annual fall pilgramage up Fall River Road and also added a few ranked bumps along the way.

Date Climbed: Aug 15, 2010


Hiked up the tundra from the Forest Canyon overlook parking area. Saw a nice herd of a dozen or so elk on the slopes on the way up. Part of a day touring the peaks along Trail Ridge Road.

Date Climbed: Jun 12, 2010


Fantastic couloir climb on the north side. Easy approach from Trail Ridge Rd, downclimbed mixed snow and rock and back up one of the narrower couloirs. Fun day despite poor visibility and new snow in June.

Fun mini alpine experience with route finding. The last part was pretty steep but the views were tremendous.

I took my son with me on this one. Saw my first Brown-capped Rosy Finches. There was still lots of snow in the area.

Arthur DigbeeGood kid mountain  Sucess!

Arthur Digbee

This is good accomplishment for kids, only about a quarter mile with 500 feet elevation gain; the first picture on this page tells it like it is. Views are great, but not that much better than driving the road. We had 20-25 mph wind, my understanding is that the wind gets a *lot* stronger.

YetiTrail?  Sucess!


Anyone know if we can be fined for going off the trail? :)

Arthur DigbeeRe: Trail?

Arthur Digbee

There's no trail. There are several high-use areas nearby with paved paths, where rangers might talk to you if you left the pavement, but Sundance is (relatively) lower use.
