bonus peak  Sucess!

Started 6 am, hit the summit of Longs at 10 am (Keyhole route), stayed for an hour, bagged Storms Peak and Battle Mtn on the way down. Back at the car after 9.5 hours. This trip surely makes it into my favorite top 10 hikes!

Meh.  Sucess!

Tagged this nondescript 'bump' alongside 5 other peaks for a tremendously long day. Continued down to Pine Ridge and back to Jim's Grove.
Though in true fashion, it was pretty windy.

From Granite Pass  Sucess!

I had enough time and energy after coming down from Storm Peak to walk the ridgeline to the "peak" and then head down Jim's Grove.

Late start  Sucess!

Late start, afternoon storm kept me from summiting Storm Pk.
No snowshoes, only microspikes used.

Loop from and to E. Longs trail  Sucess!

A quick add-on to Longs when the skies finally quit spitting rain and snow. Left the Longs descent route at Granite Pass, climbed the summit from the north, then descended S and E to connect with the Battle Mtn. CG trail, which if followed back to the main trail. As elsewhere reported, amazing views!

East Longs Peak Trail to Jim's Grove Loops  Sucess!

Nice, sunny day. Wanted to visit Storm and Lady Wash, but the team was not up to it. Enjoyed the views of Longs & Meeker, and great views of Twin Sisters.

Lady Washington - Storm - Battle  Sucess!

Hiked all three from the Longs Peak Trailhead. Many marmots were sunning themselves near Granite Pass. A gentle mountain with nice views in all directions.

Longs Peak Trail  Sucess!

Took the Longs Peak trail to Granite Pass, then wandered around to the three highest crags near the pass. It was pretty windy above treeline. The weather cooperated: every time clouds rolled in, they would break up. I decided to go to Chasm Lake on the way back. I had attempted Chasm Lake with the CMC in November, 2003, I believe, but we had to turn back. This time I made it to the lake. Lots of people on the trails this day.

I'm tired, but so close to Battle Mtn ... let's do it!  Sucess!

Cool, overcast, socked in day, but nice hike up Lady Washington, Storm Peak and Battle Mtn nonetheless.

East Face - Snow Route  Sucess!

Made a great spring snow ascent straight up the steep eastern aspect. A little scrambling once on the ridge led to summit. Perfect day + summit. (nice glissade on way down!)

beautiful Day  Sucess!

I did Battle Mountain on the way down from Storm Peak. It was a great alternative to the more popular trail to Longs.

From East Longs Peak Trail  Sucess!

Nice summit, with a good view. Total ascents = 6.
My favorite way to climb Battle is from the Storm Pass Trailhead on the Bear Lake Road. Take the trail up Boulder Brook to the North Longs Peak Trail, then take that trail to timberline. Leave the trail and hike up Battle on the west slopes, then descend down the east side to Storm Pass and hike back to the Storm Pass Trailhead.

Battle Mountain on a cold windy day  Sucess!

Hike up East Longs Peak trail, summited Mount Lady Washington, and then hit Battle Mountain, with a descent down the southern slopes to the Jims Grove trail.
