From Loveland Pass  Sucess!

Ran up to do this after getting shut down by bottomless slush down lower. Took longer than I thought. So many ups and downs. Quite windy. Started out in marginal conditions, but the skies cleared ten minutes before the summit. Nice!

Loveland Pass  Sucess!

Very enjoyable, safe winter climb. The wind was pretty unrelenting. Just me mindfull of the cornices to the west. Many false summits on this one with about 750 ft. (seems like more) elevation gain on the descent.

it beat me up  Sucess!

I climbed this mountain from Loveland Pass.

The up and down of trying to summit Grizzly can get you, but the view at the top is awesome.

Date climbed is approximate, but I was accompanying my "usual suspects"

Long Day  Sucess!

Sorry this is so old but was updating my profile and thought I would add this. Long day, started from Loveland pass in the dark at 5:30 AM. Made good time to the ridge to watch the sunrise. Made the summit around 10:00 AM. Descended to the saddle between Torreys and Grizzly and ascended halfway to Torreys. Had to be back in Denver by 5 so we turned around at 11:30 and made our way back. This is the only time I have gotten AMS bad. Threw up twice on the way back to the pass. Not a fun time, beautiful day though.

Grizzly Indeed  Sucess!

Grizzly Peak was a bit more of an endeavor than expected; however, I probably wouldn't have thought so if it weren't for the fact that it was my son's first peak...he's 17 months old and was carried on my back the entire time. After much debate at the class 3 rock outcrop, we did move on and it turned out to be a little less arduous than it looked...but don't be fooled: it is definitely not for the inexperienced hiker. One false move on the final push and you're going for a ride that may land you in the hospital, or worse. Awesome views and no one else on the summit, although we had to hustle down due to clouds building rapidly over the divide. Gotta love Colorado!

Great Cold Day  Sucess!

We topped out after a few hours of blasting cold winds. Perfect weather training for Denali!

Via Loveland Pass  Sucess!

Astrobassman and I loaded up our packs and used this climb for some Denali prep training. It was cold and windy but with blue sky and sun. A great morning workout.
Climbed during a rainy weekend--didn't want to spend the whole weekend indoors. A nice hike in the rain and clouds.

uncharacteristic good weather  Sucess!

little to no wind most of the time. the summit was dead calm and not a cloud to be seen. kind of a PITA with all those humps on the ridge!

2x  Sucess!

3/20/05 - Snow was falling heavily and it was dark on the way down: "Man, those lights down there that we're walking toward seem so much further away than they really are...oh crap that's I-70, not Loveland Pass." Kind of an epic in the "early days".

1/26/13 - Loveland Pass-> "Cupid" -> Grizzly -> Torreys -> Grays -> Stevens Gulch

Loveland Pass  Sucess!

I've gotta say, today Grizzly Peak lived up to its name in full force: GRIZZLY. Insane winds sandblasted us with ice crystals from start to finish. Fortunately, we reached the summit during merely high winds. Suddenly, the wind kicked up a notch and we donned our backs and descended. The scenery was drop-dead gorgeous. The return trip over endless humps in cold horizontal winds quite honestly crapped me out. I was admittedly happy to reach my warm truck for the drive home. Hiking partners: John K's CMC trip.
