Quick climb of Humboldt Peak before breakfast at Lower South Colony Lake, after climbing the Crestones the day before. Cold and windy but there was a great sunrise at the top!
Beautiful fall hike. Nice dusting of snow on the Crestones.
Hiked to the top from camp at the lower lake in the dark. Watched the sunrise. Unfortunately, clouds ruined my hopes of catching the Crestones ablaze in alpenglow. I spent an hour and a half on the summit, and was completely alone.
Hiked up to catch the sunrise on the summit. Beautiful view of the Crestones all lit up in orange and red.
Did Humboldt before sunset after climbing Crestone peak in the morning and later waiting out a few afternoon rain showers. It was peak #2 of 20 of my trip. Nice views of neighboring peaks.
Warm dry day. Spent an hour on the summit, with Dave, Kat and Jermiah.
It was really windy.
Standard Route. Great climb. Snowed 2' in 24 hours. Summitted in a whiteout & dug a cave at the lower lake to dry out. The log shows two guys coming up the SE ridge the day before. Met a few spring breakers on their way in, otherwise secluded. I love winter...
Bagged and tagged
Some sleet and lightening in mid-summer, 3 hours from South Colony Lake with Dirk Summers and Faith Powell.
than the day before...
With my daughter.
Backpacked in to South Colony Lakes. Climbed to the Humbolt saddle, bagged Kitty Kat Carson, Obstrution Peak and finished the day with Humbolt. Awesome 14 hour day!
A super trip with my friends Rich and Juno.
Great weather. 81/2 hours RT from trail head.
Humboldt wasn't the goal but since I was up there anyway, figured, might as well. 4th time.
Climbed with partner Dustin. Long hike from th. nice weather.. Had pesky marmot follow me downhill. #48 14er 10 to go!
The wife, pup and I where able to enjoy a bit of solitude on these beast. Surprisingly nice summit I thought. Killer views.
6/22/12 Weather was incremental so plans to do The Prow on Kit Carson were scratched from South Colony Lake to summit took 1hr 40 mins and 3 hrs RT.
Beautiful day with awesome views of the crestones.
