From Jennings TH  Sucess!

Carbonate, Cyclone, Low Carb, Grizzly, Mamma, Boulder, then exited to Baldwin Gulch trailhead. With Marshall. Hardest section was the extremely loose Class 3 descent from Low Carb to Grizzly. It may be one of the most loose sections of scrambling I’ve done. Time consuming if care is taken.

Cyclone Creek 4 pack  Sucess!

Looped Carbonate, Cyclone, "Lo Carb," and Cronin. Thought about adding Grizzly Mtn, but fatigue and weather got the better of us (well, not John). Good thing we didn't go up Grizzly cuz the trip back was accompanied by graupel, rain, and thunder practically the whole way. With Bob, Kate, and John.

via Baldwin Gulch  Sucess!

Just a mere walk. Though most of the Sawatch is like that. Lots of snow squalls moving through all day long. Weird weather.

Great ridge walk  Sucess!

Climbed Grizzly Mountain from Cyclone Creek then traversed the mini-knife edge on the east ridge over to Cronin Peak then on to Cyclone Mountain and Carbonate Mountain. Dropped 3,000' in two miles down the south ridge of Carbonate back to my vehicle. The beginning and end of this loop in the trees/willows was unpleasant but the ridge portion was great!

6 in one day - good times  Sucess!

Nice area - you can really hit a lot of peaks in one day if you plan it out right. Pretty cool. Here's the trip report.

4 peak linkup  Sucess!

From the Cyclone Creek trailhead, I Climbed the South face of Grizzly Mountain, traversed to Cronin Peak, back to Cyclone Mountain, and then finished on Carbonate Mountain. Car to car was around 6 hours 40 minutes.

Ridge run from Pomeroy  Sucess!

Did a cool loop hike from Pomeroy to Carbonate, which collects 5 ranked 13ers! Also added 12er Calico, which is a worthy one to add if you have time.

South Ridge  Sucess!

Climbed in Sept 2005 - we were contemplating going over to Tab but impending weather prevented us. Fun climb. Steep at first through the tundra and some bushwacking. Once on the ridge - very fun!

Great Outing  Sucess!

The trail was easy to follow and the climb up the talus gully not too bad. Absolute solitude. I climbed via the west slopes from Cyclone Creek. Continued on to Cronin and returned the same way.

Combo from Cyclone Creek  Sucess!

Climbed both of these from Cyclone Creek. The summits were covered in a light August snow! The register on Cyclone was placed in 1989 and I was the first to sign in 24 days, gotta love those lesser climbed bi-centennials!

Very little snow from Cyclone Creek  Sucess!

A great day out on two seldom climbed peaks. Great views and very little snow. The trail is ridiculously easy to lose, practically overgrown in areas.

Route Climbed: from North Carb, descended by west slopes route Date Climbed: May 28, 2004  Sucess!

Climbed these two mountains at the end of a long, exhausting day of punching through the snow on high mountain ridges and snow covered "trails" through the trees. The north ridge of Cyclone was particularly bad. Climbed these after Grizzly Mtn, and North Carbonate. I can't remember being so tired before, after a single day of climbing.
