Baldwin Gulch TH, Ascend W Slopes  Sucess!

Very busy mountain ... there were even 4-wheelers up high. I'd rather hike.

Easy 14er.  Sucess!

What a hike! Knocked it out in 5 hours car to car. Did it with my bud, John Morehead (his first 14er!) and he even had a pulled hamstring! Got down and out of the storms just in time.

Standard route from Baldwin Gulch  Sucess!

Started up at 7:03AM from just below treeline, reached an empty summit at 8:56 via the road and up & across the ridge. Beautiful wildflowers all the way to the ridge. Signed the summit log, took several pix, above the clouds stayed on top about 25mins, back down by 10:56. My 23rd 14'er on this beautiful morning.........sweet!!!

Baldwin Gulch TH, Ascend W Slopes  Sucess!

Driving back from the trailhead proved to be more exciting than the hike. We met a 4-wheel drive caravan coming up the mountain at a place where the "road" was only 1 narrow lane wide. Talk about fun. My wife had to close her eyes while we passed each other!

Up the road  Sucess!

Easy relaxing day just walked up the old 4 wheel drive road without a cloud in the sky.

Climbed with Altitude 14er & Lil. Was a great day out....sun with a little bean bag snowstorm for the summit =)

Where's the Snow?!  Sucess!

Climbed with SPer "asphazell" and Lil. The storms didn't move in until we stood on the summit. Not much snow in the Southern Sawatch this year..

Alone All Day!  Sucess!

Reached the summit at 8:40 in the morning, then went over and tagged Cronin Peak as well. Beautiful day and not another soul within sight!

Easter Basket  Sucess!

As gurlyclimber said, we sort of invented our own way up this mountain using a combination of the road, grassy slopes, snow filled gullies, steep talus, and exposed ridge scrambling. Seeing as it was Easter, I just thought "Easter Basket" was the best way to describe this fun alternate route. Except for the postholing at the end of the day, this was in our opinion the perfect way to climb this peak. Get it before the gullies melt and you can avoid the switchbacks on the road!

Easter Basket  Sucess!

Easter Basket isn't really a route name but chicagotransplant appropriately named it so since our way up was a mixed "basket" of climbing styles, roads and events. We started at the bottom of the road, headed upward on some snow slopes, tried to make the class II more exposed and fun and miserably post-holed our way back down. All in all, a great day. We had the entire peak to ourselves all day long. April is the PERFECT time to summit this peak.

Browns Creek Trailhead  Sucess!

An easy day from Browns Lake. It was a long walk out back to the trail head.

West Slopes  Sucess!

Too bad there's been so much mining activity in the area ... but a nice summit. nonetheless.

W Slopes  Sucess!

Hiked all the way up from the 2WD parking. Quite an early-season workout.

W Slopes  Sucess!

Solo. Full winter conditions. I camped at treeline and read Brave New World that night and freaked myself out. The next day a few inches of new snow and 0 degrees F, but otherwise total beauty.

Route Climbed: West Slopes Date Climbed: August 2000  Sucess!

We drove to probably a little over 11,000ft. (something I'm usually not keen on doing. I prefer to summit mtns. traditionally, alpine style) and started hiking. I had my sisters husband (Kevin) with me so it was unstandable driving that far up. But we had a good time. Pretty easy mtn. with good weather.

Other than 1 major creek crossing, the route is very easy. Pretty much just follow the jeep trail.

Route Climbed: 4wd road from 13,500' Date Climbed: August 11, 2005  Sucess!

I have no qualms with long hikes involving 4000'+ of elevation gain, but why hike if you can drive? My 2005 Xterra made this an easy trip and a more comfortable one since fog and rain visited intermittently all day.

Route Climbed: Standard Date Climbed: Sept. 5, 2005  Sucess!

Kind of a miserable day. Started the hike at the fork in the road at 10,800 feet. Had I known how far the road went, I would have driven up farther. Lots of road hiking. Yuck. Thankfully the rain let up after a few hours.

Uneventful hike except that the crappy road up the mountain bounced my battery terminal off the car battery. Gave me quite a scare when I couldn't start the car after the hike.
