no snow left, distant views hazy with smoke from wildfires. I'm not sure this peak belongs with the Elkhead Mts - it is very different from the other peaks, geologically and otherwise.
With 9588, Little Mountain, Peterson Ridge & 7825.
Nice day in plenty of snow and clear views from the top.
Lovely, cool day with my hubby, finished just a bit before the storm arrived.

Since I didn't get a view in January, I climbed Hahns alone in September with perfect weather. Nice views.

Climbed in a nasty blizzard with SP member coloradoiceclimber, and his dogs Denali and Yukon.
great after-work hike up the trail, along with a fun 4wd approach in my rental car. The lookout is currently being restored by "HistoriCorps".
Love this hill. Love the sound of the rocks shifting underfoot on the upclimb and downclimb. Gorgeous views from the summit.
Started in the morning and found the summit empty of people. A few hours later there were numerous people going up the mountain. The lookout seems to attract a fair share of lightning.
wife and I zipped up in the morning...great views of a very green and wet North Routt.
Climbed with Wesley C.
Great views of the area. I'll be back someday to ski it.
Great hike/climb!! Gives the feel of a higher peak by it's isolation and it's rocky, above timberline summit.
The road was snowed in just off out of Columbine. But managed to find dry ground the majority of the way to the summit. On the way down stuck to the snow patches for a quick exit. Good views. Not a single other human.
climbed sans snowshoes on a few feet of snow by myself... did not prove to be too difficult. wonderful vistas from the top! the descent was very easy with all the snow; i bounced my way down in about an hour.
I climbed the peak with my Dad and brother. I had a tough time on the rocks, but enjoyed the summit tower.
I climbed it with Dad and my little sister Shaylee. It was a great climb.
It was a nice way to spend the summer solstice. And I was getting paid to climb it. Ha!
From summit, watched sheriff arrest camper below
Foggy, overcast weather. Reached summit with wife and 6 mo. old boy on my back by noon within two hours. Descended in 45 min. before storm clouds gathered near peak. Encountered a few menacing dirt bikes on the trail. Arrgghh!!! Rough, rocky road from Columbine store to trailhead. Great view though!
