RMdaytripsgrlNot too Tough!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 6, 2016


Some minor route-finding trouble on the summit ridge, but not too bad. This is a fun and beautiful mountain! Hubz did the tough moves at the top, not me, I was happy to tag the Geological Survey stamp at the almost-top. :)

mgriffin015First 14er!  Sucess!


Overcame altitude sickness to do my first 14er! Amazing area! We took the train, which was pretty cool but I could do without it next time...

Date Climbed: Jul 22, 2012


Thought I was rained out, but made a late start after the rain broke and was able to get this one in. The move off the summit block is the one that makes you pucker, I didn't really think about when I stepped over to get on top.

Early morning summit of Sunlight Peak from Chicago Basin camp (11,000') - a fun scramble with a lot of exposure on the final few moves!

first peak of an awesome weminuche trip! climb to the sunlight-sunlight spire saddle from sunlight basin is the home of nightmares. from there the climb was sweet, and the summit block is pretty simple, just a bit airy. good stuff! onto windom....

DigglerFun climb!   Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 9, 2012


west ridge, solo. After getting in to Chicago Basin the afternoon/eve before, Dad worn out, so did this one alone- wanted to do this after guy on Wilson Peak recommended it, & recon’ed that Dad wouldn’t be enjoying the 4th class too much. Left campsite (~10,750’-10,900’) @ 6.53. Made good time- just below notch & start of route @ 9.00. Beginning above notch was definitely crux of route. Rest was easier. Summit blocks not too bad either. Summited @ 10.08. Heard voices shortly after, but when couldn’t see them below, looked up & realized climbers on the spire! When saw leader top out, I was initially envious, but then just enjoyed watching. In racing to repeat summit moves so camera timer could get me, ended up breaking CO Native bottle :( Luckily still had Avery 15.8% ale in bag- more careful next attempt yielded good summit shot w/ beer. Enjoyed phenomenal views from just below summit block. Up 1 last time, then left @ 11.40. Mellow descent down standard route. Back @ camp @ 14.14. I'd recommend the W ridge over the standard route to anyone seeking a more sustained, aesthetic, & fun 4th-class route.

Climbed Eolus, waited out a storm at Twin Lakes for 4 hours, ran up Sunlight and had to wait out 3 more storms and finally summitted at 6pm. Took my shoes off for summit block due to wet rock. Not that exposed. Then did Windom at 7:30pm
