Route Climbed: From Loveland Pass Date Climbed: November 23, 2005  Sucess!

A nice winter day on the divide. No wind and just enough snow to make it scenic. Summited around 3 or 4 in the afternoon.

Set out to do Torreys and Grays, but got butt kicked after the three peaks and finally, this one.

Most of the time the summit was in the clouds - but I had

nice views of the Loveland Pass area during the hike.

Good 1/2 day round trip.

Route Climbed: North west slopes from Sniktau connecting ridge Date Climbed: March 2003  Sucess!

Climed this in winter conditions in March. High wind, drifts and blowing snow. Made the last steep bit to the summit somewhat treacherous. This is a strenuous climb and a good conditioner/acclimatizer due to the up and down nature of the ridge.

Great hike. More wind than I've ever seen. Saw at least fifty avalanches on the surrounding slopes. Fortunately there weren't some on the trail. Spectacular scenery for a spectacular day.

Route Climbed: Northwest Ridge from Loveland Pass Date Climbed: June 23, 1991  Sucess!

This is an excellent stroll above timberline at any time of year, with easy access (provided Loveland Pass isn't closed for avalanche blasting or plowing). It is also a great beginner's hike to expose them to the mountains as well. An added bonus is that you get to climb two ranked 13ers, the other being the unnamed 13,117' Point a mile north of Grizzly. Early in the summer, be careful of cornices that may hang ofver the east facing slopes to the left of the ascent ridge.

Awesome day! Hit Grizzly on the way to Torreys. Weather was near perfect, very little wind. Ice axe and crampons were needed.

The day started with no visibility, light snow and some wind. The further I went the better it got. I summited with no wind, no snow and only a few very high clouds. The views were great.

A great winter hike. Very windy, though, but it was good. Hmm. . . crappy view from the summit, (psyche!!).

Four of us climbed the 4 hour round trip to the summit of Grizzly Peak. It was a windy day up on the ridge.

Good 1/2 day outing to get my strength up for the spring season, not that much snow on the ridge, windy as always.

This is a nice hike for early season acclimatizing. The route keeps you above treeeline for 4 or 5 hours. I had to take two trips to get this summit for the first time I forgot my boots. If you ever hike with me, please remind me to bring some boots for the day.

Route Climbed: Continental Divide from Loveland Pass Date Climbed: May 20th, 2004  Sucess!

Very windy as expected, and a lot of up/down along the Divide. Made the summit in two hours, and contemplated side trip to Torreys, but my legs got rubbery, so I turned around 1/4 way up from the Grizzly/Torrey saddle. Very nice views from this peak - especially Tenmile Range and Holy Cross in the distance.

Route Climbed: Continental Divide from Loveland Pass Date Climbed: April 27, 2003  Sucess!

Got to meet the esteemable Ken Nolan during this hike, which was a treat. An otherwise uneventful but fun day. Don't forget to summit UN 13,117 on the way there or on the way back! It's a ranked 13er. A trip report is available here.

We originally started out to hike Sniktau and Grizzly and luckily someone had the idea to skip Sniktau otherwise it would have taken a lot longer. We had a large and sometimes slow moving group with us. It was probably too early in the hiking season to be up so high given our level of fitness at the time. Enjoyable hike despite the wind to deal with. Of course I think every hike is enjoyable so what do I know?

Route Climbed: Loveland Pass Date Climbed: September 19,2003  Sucess!

It was a beautiful day, with clear skies, but it was very windy and cold at the summit. There was a mountain goat wandering around near the top. I was a little worried that he might try to defend his territory, but he didn't. I didn't see any other hikers headed for Grizzly, which was a pleasant surprise.
