When do People Climb Mount Elbert?

When do people climb Mount Elbert? This has been discussed on many forums. Anyway, I went through the summit logs from this website (any that had dates climbed mentioned) and created a spreadsheet. This chart will be used in several forums to point out when people are climbing the 14ers. Mount Elbert was used as an example because it is so well known. It would be interesting to chart all the 14ers. Note that for Elbert 83.3% of the summit logs were from climbs June through September. The percentage will be higher at the end of the summer, because I created this on the night of the last day in June.

Anyway, as of June 30, 2007:
