trail running  Sucess!

I think this was my first mountain run. My second trip, Oct 2, 2011, was also a run from Church Fork, but this time continued from Grandeur along the ridge to Mt Aire and down to Elbow Fork, ~11 miles point to point (used a bike shuttle). It's a fun ridge for the most part, and was a beautiful day of pink bigtooth maples and yellow box elders and aspens, but the bushwhacking was a bit much for what I was (not) wearing: my legs have never been so scratched up from bushwhacking, and I've run a few other ridges in the area with unmaintained trails while dressed similarly.

Route: West Slopes  Sucess!

At least 10 people were on the summit taking in the views before I headed down via West Slopes and several people were still heading up. Had to make it a quick trip and get my taxes filed.

Crazy with the ice on top  Sucess!

This was a fun hike. We started a little late in the day and it was getting dark at the top. It was very icy near the top and was hard without crampons.

Finally!  Sucess!

Been eyeing the peak since I moved here- finally climbed it. Very easy trail with loads of flat bits and switchbacks. The top was covered in ice, which made moving without crampons tricky- prolly busted my rear 5 times coming down, but had a good time.

3 Routes  Sucess!

First time via Church Fork, then West Slopes which I prefer and then I used the Dragontail Ridge to complete the Millcreek Ridge Run recently. There is some bushwacking, but noot for extensive distances as long as you come back on the faint track before the first knob on the ridge. It is probably the most scenic route on the mountain and should clear up with more use.

Church Fork  Sucess!

This was a fun little hike. Good relaxed Day hike. Great introductory hike for those new to climbing.

West Slopes  Sucess!

A good hike for those times when you spontaneously decide in the middle of the day (or night) that you need to get your heart pounding for a few hours. Best enjoyed in sub 80 degree weather. :)

excellent spring hike  Sucess!

Have done this hike twice via churhfork and once from west side. Go in the spring, when the olympus ridge is still buried in snow, the views are awesome. Did the hike from churchfork on a saturday and memorial day and it was crowded. When I took the west ridge route I saw no other hikers. West ridge is very short but very steep.

West Ridge  Sucess!

Hiked it cuz i wanted to do the whole ridge to Mt. Aire. Did beat my own time by 30-60 mins! that was nice!! too many people on top, unexpectedly. lol I thought there was a ridge trail over to Mt. Aire, but I found out differently. Only made it not quite 1/2 way til time made me turn around. Oh yah! if anyone finds a Lake Louise/Canada cap on the rocky part of the ridge...ITS MINE! love to have it back if ever found. :)

Route Climbed: Church Fork  Sucess!

Excellent hike, enough elevation gain to make it a challenge, yet not a long distance to make it epic. It was very beautiful with all the snow and I highly recommend spring as the best time to climb before it all melts.
