Via Fern Canyon  Sucess!

Have climbed this route several times and always enjoy it. I too often use it as a training route. The first time I wondered if the steepness would ever end! Still, might try it this winter as I've only done it in the summer.

Attempted Murder  Sucess!

Took a sea-level buddy after a hard night of drinking. Came up from Bear Canyon and at the final push, with stormclouds racing in, forced him to almost run up those big boulders to the summit so we could get the heck off before getting zapped. Beachy was winded and I thought for a moment he was going to pitch me over the edge. Ahh, what are friends for?

Bear Peak and South Boulder Peak: A day to remember  Sucess!

Note sure if the date is correct, but this was when the marine was "missing" in eldo canyon. Plenty of search and rescue people on the trail. Partially tore two ligaments on top of Bear Peak but went over to South Boulder and back to the car. One of the longest days of hiking (limping mostly).

Fern Canyon fun  Sucess!

Sure was steep, but a great hike with great views. I also attempted it in the winter (maybe March?), and made it within 30 feet of the top before I chickened out since the rocks were iced over.

Up Shadow Canyon Down Bear Canyon  Sucess!

Rainy and fogy all day, no views on top. First hiked up South Boulder Peak then up Bear Peak. Then went down Bear Canyon and across Mesa Trail back to the trailhead. Comming down the rocks on top of Bear Peak I slipped on the wet rocks and cut my shin and got a massive bruise on my rear.

Groovy  Sucess!

A cool and grueling climb up Fern Canyon. More of a "summit" than Green Mountain, albeit with some bugs as well.

Training/Suffering on Bear Peak  Sucess!

Another training hike on Bear Peak. This time from Shanahan TH via North Fork Shanahan Trail, up Fern Canyon and then to summit. Tried to move fast for training, 2 hrs 30 mins round trip. Suffered because not in best shape and saw others running where I could only fast hike. Boulder is a humbling environment in which to train.

Routes Climbed: Bear, Fern, Shadow Canyons  Sucess!

I love this hike - Fern and Shadow canyons are great training hikes, and Bear Canyon is a great wildflower hike.

Fern Canyon  Sucess!

Great hike, beautiful weather, some snow on the trails. Scrambling at the end is great to get up to the pointy summit.

Route Climbed: Fern Canyon Date Climbed: July 1979  Sucess!

I was 5 at the time. The exposure at the top scared me quite a bit. Been hooked on climbing ever since. Have repeated Bear from Fern, Shawdow and Green Bear many time since. This is the second summit in the Boulder 5-peak traverse.

Route Climbed: Fern Canyon Date Climbed: November 27, 2005  Sucess!

Great hike to train, burn off steam, or enjoy with friends / children. Strenuous enough to get tired but short enough to do in a few hours. On this day the temps were cool and there were stiff winds on the ridge. My hydration pack hose kept trying to freeze. The trail was icy in patches and treking poles were a big help.

Route Climbed: Bear Canyon Date Climbed: August 29, 2005  Sucess!

Today was a beautiful day for a hike. I took the Bear Canyon / West Ridge both up and down. This route was slightly longer (in miles) than I expected for an afternoon hike. It took me an hour and thirty-two minutes to summit from NCAR.

Route Climbed: MesaTrail to Fern Canyon and NE ridge Date Climbed: January 2005  Sucess!

Great summit and a steep hike close to town. Used this as a training hike, so the cool summit was a bonus.
