W/ Lookout from Meeker Park  Sucess!

hiked up to Lookout Mountain on a gray, cloudy day that promised rain, after Lookout I headed down to the Lookout/Horsetooth saddle and scrambled up the north side of the peak. Instead of heading back to the Meeker/Lookout saddle I headed basically due north through the woods to the trail. My GPS said there was a trail, but if there was it has long disappeared.

Lookout - Horsetooth  Sucess!

Snowshoed the pair from 'Horse Creek TH' near Meeker Park. Climbing to the actual summit felt somewhat dangerous due to ice and snow. Wasn't sure which outcrop was the true summit, so ascended all of them to be safe.

I hiked this with Lookout. lots of scrambling options - stay to the south for fun 4th class and low 5th class (or harder) slabs or stay on the ridge for class 3/4 scrambling.

Via Meeker Ridge  Sucess!

Some decent scrambling to a barren summit/point. Views were no better then Lookout but def. more exciting to reach then Lookout. Surrounding forest was surprisingly dense and lush!
As with Mt. Meeker, broken register.

Windy Day on Horsetooth Peak  Sucess!

It was a very windy day, so didn't get to enjoy the summit views for long, but the trek up through the dense forest was pleasant.

Awesome scramble!  Sucess!

Great summit and incredible scramble. I think there are about 10 lines to gain the summit here. Stay on the ridge proper for a great 4th class scramble or ascend one of many 3rd class spurs to gain the ridge. One will take you directly to the summit by no more than a 3rd class scramble. Summit register was broken and missing in case anyone wants to take another one up ;)

I didn't write the exact date in climbing log. It was a fun day of easy hiking and rock scrambling.

Route Climbed: From Meeker Park Date Climbed: July, 1971  Sucess!

We had a cabin on Horse Creek. Bush whacked up the drainage and then just popped up the ridge to Horsetooth.

Route Climbed: Sandbeach Lake Trail over Lookout Mountain Date Climbed: 8 April, 2004  Sucess!

Great climb up southeast ridge of Lookout mountain. Lots of bush whacking and class 4 climbing but well worth it. Climbed standard route on Horsetooth from saddle. Great climb to a rarely visited summit. No names in summit log for past 4 months.
