Windy  Sucess!

Just Hoosier. Windy and long. Use it for training then move on. Good views though.

Snow death march  Sucess!

I agree with Keifer-it was a very long hike. Started out fun, sunny and clear- but ended with crazy cold wind. My fun meter stopped working at the end. ;-)

Long Ridge Run  Sucess!

Won't be back up here. Hated this ridge. It went on FOREVER. Winds were typical. Good views of Quandary.

From Hoosier Pass  Sucess!

Sunny bluebird day, though winds kicked up around noon. It felt like we would never reach this summit, the ridge went on forever! We ate like teenagers afterward at Deb's cabin - ribs, veggies and dip, hot cocoa with peppermint Schnaaps, petite syrah, pumpkin pie, hummus and chips, Jarlsburg, Captain Morgan and apple cider, pears... Yeesh. With Kiefer and Deb!

Three Pointer  Sucess!

Okie and I got all 3 from Hoosier Pass. Left snowshoes near Pt 12,814 for the return. When I got back to my stash, they were gone. (Got 'em back.)

Free Throw?  Sucess!

Well in keeping with the basketball theme on route names, I guess I did the "Free Throw" this morning. Just Hoosier Ridge for me today, got tired of fighting wind and decided it wasn't worth repeating the Reds in it! Also did repeats on 1/6/16 and 3/20/17 with Rachael.

End of March - But Still Winter  Sucess!

Cloudy with on and off graupel and snow flurries. Lower 500' required flotation (snowshoes). Broke trail; didn't look like anyone had been up in a long while. Wind clocked at 48 mph

Grassy ridge  Sucess!

It was not very enjoyable hike, like a rollercoaster but the views of Tenmile/Mosquitos and Front Ranges are amazing.

Hoosier Ridge and Red Mountain  Sucess!

Beautiful December day. Didn't even need a jacket most of the time! Traversed around Hoosier Ridge summit to the west and went up Red Mountain first, over Hoosier Ridge on the way back.

Hoosier Ridge & Red Peak  Sucess!

Hoosier Ridge & Red Peak from Hoosier Pass. Persistent wind and a few inches of fresh snow made this a big day. I’ll have to come back another time to get Red Mountain.

LaBoreas Loop  Sucess!

Had a great trip yesterday linking Bald Mountain with these 3 peaks. We parked down at Indiana Creek and had a perfect 10-hour day. We saw a herd of 40 big horn sheep on Red Mountain, reminding us why we are fighting to preserve these areas via the Hidden Gems Wilderness Campaign. Trip Report

Unplanned Hike  Sucess!

Climbed Red Mtn. and Hoosier ridge summit from the Babels' house in Blue River after work. Split a chocolate chip cookie for food. We only meant to go to treeline, but the mountain had other ideas. Nice views of the Tenmile.

Very accessible off season hike  Sucess!

4/1/06 - Can't beat starting high on Hoosier Pass when there's a bunch of snow below treeline. Climbed all three.

3/14/15 - Went back for winter ascents of all three via Hoosier Pass. Forgot how neverending and undulating this damn ridge is. Blah. Sucks that I just missed calendar winter on my first trip and had to return.

Route Climbed: Hoosier Pass  Sucess!

Went up Hoosier Ridge partway with a group of '14ers.com' members. It was a cold, windy white-out all day. Visibility went in and out and it was a challenge navigating this otherwise straightforward ridge. Ended up being solo most of the day. Windburn leaves a lasting memory, is it spring yet?
