Summit  Sucess!

Great hike with lovely views. Started from Brainard Lake and followed the trailhead signs to get there. The first half of the hike was a bit windy and chilly, but as soon as the summit was reached, puffy clouds came in and the wind calmed down. Path was easy to follow and cairns above tree line during rock scramble were helpful in staying on track. Made use of the wind shelters above tree line to escape the cold wind. There were still a few wildflowers on the trail and saw many pika. Indian Peaks Wilderness area is a gem and so close to home! Well worth the trip f you live on the Front Range.

First Thirteener  Sucess!

This was my first climb above 13,000 feet. I was 15 years old and didn't have a clue what I was doing, but I made it to top. I started from Brainard Lake using dead reckoning navigation. Hiked through the pine forest and straight toward the peak. I eventually found the trail, but just kept on my straight course. I wore blue jeans and tennis shoes. After climbing Audubon, I was hooked and yearned to climb as much as possible.

Super Windy Day  Sucess!

Nice summit hike from the Brainard Lake area. This particular day was extremely windy, so it wasn't exactly ideal conditions. Still a beautiful trek tho.

:)  Sucess!

w/ G. Neely, E. Neely, C. Treiber, and L. Novais; Blitzed up and down the last section with Gabe to beat the storms. Fun day in the sun with great friends.

Via SE ridge  Sucess!

The 3rd class is easy and short. The ridge is long and fun. Gaining the ridge was a talus scramble. I went around Mitchell Lake to the left, wandered through the forest to gain the white rubble field, then angled right to reach the lower/mid shoulder of the ridge. Loose, but doable.

Windy  Sucess!

Hiked up from Brainard Lake. Started around 6:00am and summited about 9:00am and after being knocked down twice by wind on the descent to the saddle with Paiute I decided to bail on any further peaks for the day and was back home around 1:30pm. First Indian Peak summit since moving to Westminster from Colorado Springs back in October. Amazing place - I will be back for more!

Warm-up Hike  Sucess!

Had just arrived in Colorado the day before, so proud to make it over 13,000 feet on the first day. A good conditioner. Beautiful area.

Nice hike  Sucess!

Made it up pretty fast. Awesome views. My emergency decent from Paiute was when it got really interesting

Brainard Lake  Sucess!

A great day to spend with my wife on our 9th wedding anniversary. The road to Mitchell Lake TH was closed, so we hiked from the Brainard Lake parking area and added around two miles to the trip. It was fairly windy, but tolerable at the summit. It would have been rough in colder conditions. Being that it was in the mid 90's in town, we weren't anywhere near freezing up top. It was really clear and the views were fantastic. Awesome day!
