Starting early is the key to climbing this one. Started at 3:30 AM. Interesting and fun route.

Start early to avoid the crowds, or climb it during shoulder season.

After several attempts called off due to weather and starting too late, it was nice to finally summit! Fun route, but crowded.

Training hike for Mount Elbrus. It was a good day with good weather. Everyone reached the summit and made it back safely. I didn't have the altitudinal nausea I had in 2009, but my feet are a little pissed off.

Left the TH at 3am and didn't see anyone until the way back down after 8am summit. Trough filled with snow, Narrows and Homestretch snowy and icy, making an axe and crampons pretty useful now, though I got by without the crampons. Great views and exposure in spots.

Hiked up to Jim's grove & camped with Elspeth. Summited the next day and had a foot of new snow before we got back to the car.

Paul Strykowski and I took a bus from Milwaukee to Denver, stayed in Gobblins Forest, then the Boulder Field and climbed via the keyhole route. First time on the top of a mountain. Nothing's ever like the first time. I was barely 16 years old.

Rocky AlpsFirst scramble  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 23, 2005

Rocky Alps

It was pretty easy-going until the Keyhole. After that it was fun scrambling and amazing views all the way up to the summit, especially looking down into Glacier Gorge. Despite efforts to start early enough, the group I was with wasn't acclimatized to the elevation and had to go quite slow, which caused us to get caught in the middle of a lightning storm on the way back down. See "En'lightning' Experience" trip report for details.
