Lost Rat  Sucess!

Elbrus preparation hike, 3rd time on Grays. I tagged along with some CMCers who are climbing Rainier in early July. We climbed up the Lost Rat, then over to the summit. There was a mountain goat hanging around the top of the couloir. The group split up at the summit. I did not go for Torreys. Lots and lots of hikers on a beautiful day.

not that easy with snow  Sucess!

Climbed in March 17th with not that big snow like other years, but from I-70, not from trailhead, and with snow on that road all the time.

2nd try is the charm  Sucess!

This was to be my first CO 14er when I tried it in Sept. 2011 in running clothes (gear hadn't arrived with me yet). Surprised for snow, drifts above my knees (not good for breathable tennis shoes), and white out. This time around, PERFECTest weather - light wind, cool temps, plenty of sunshine. Bagged Torreys also. Totally worth the 2nd attempt :)

First COL 14er!  Sucess!

Amazing day, made my first 14er. Thought about heading to Torreys, but I wanted to be able to walk in the evening.

Long slog up the road

started early, tons of snow, the approach road was a hike in itself. Made some great friends on my way down!

No big deal  Sucess!

Avoid via Stevens Gulch unless skiiable or looping over from Torreys.

Plenty of snow  Sucess!

Cloud level hung around 12.5k - 13k all day with temps in the mid 20's higher up and plenty of snow. Micro spikes would have been perfect for the conditions that day. It's always amazing to see peoples clothing choice on an easy 14er on a Saturday. Saw many shorts, sweatshirts and even a crocs, shorts, no gloves and light coat combo. He was surprisingly high when I passed so I assume he made it but he had to have been miserable, he looked it. The weather was windy, snowy and cold. I get that you could easily run up the trail in tennies, shorts and a t-shirt on a nice day but wow. It was all snow from at least 13k which could be knee deep off the trail in places.
