TH from beyond the Bank Mine  Sucess!

Started up at 5:10AM, reached an empty summit at 7:56AM. Perfect weather and awesome views. Stayed about 20 mins then back to the car by 10:38AM with several people heading up. My second summit in as many days and my 29th 14'er.....sweet!

Huron via Brown's  Sucess!

After reading HokieJim's trail report we decided to use the same route and had a great hike bagging 2 summits in one day! A few threatening clouds came, went and came again but we had a good 30-45 minutes at the summit and got to our cars just before the rain came! Awesome views.

Tour de Huron  Sucess!

Ascended Brown's Peak first via the Lulu Gulch trail, traversed over to Huron, and descended the standard route. Snow conditions allowed for a nice 1000' glissade down the NW face!

Northwest Slopes  Sucess!

Beautiful views throughout the hike, especially those of The Three Apostles. Great trail, but the snow in the basin was a nightmare on the descent with lots and lots of postholing. Beyond that, Huron was a blast!

An alternate adventure route from Lulu Gulch  Sucess!

On a repeat summit, we took to our adventurous side & loop hiked both Browns & Huron. Using our crampons, we climbed a fun 25-30 degree coulier up to Browns (in pure solitude), traversed the ridge to Huron, caught a couple of glissades down Huron's face with our axes, then donned our snowshoes to prevent a dreadful posthole nightmare accross the valley headed back down the standard route. THIS route is the way to go!!!

Via Northwest Slopes  Sucess!

favorite Sawatch 14er  Sucess!

More scenic than other Sawatch peaks. Maybe the only Sawatch 14er Id consider doing again.

Rain and hail  Sucess!

Beautiful hike...made the summit this morning, presumably the first one on the mountain today (no one else had signed the register). Only one other hiker behind me, then a rainstorm with some hail thrown in for good measure on the descent.

North Ridge traverse from Middle Mt.  Sucess!

The easy traverse made for an awesome loop hike. The trudge out in the hail/rain storm was an exciting finish to an otherwise pleasant day.

S Winfield TH Ascend NW Slopes  Sucess!

This hike is short enough to take your time and enjoy the high mountain tundra. The perfect weather made Huron my favorite 14er so far.

S Winfield TH Ascend NW Slopes  Sucess!

Beautiful hike on a great trail with more switchbacks than I'd ever seen before. The high alpine meadow on the route is one of the nicest places I've encountered on any hike.
