Audubon Trail  Sucess!

Walked up the trail to the Audubon summit with the intention of traversing over to Paiute, but the weather was no good and I headed down. I enjoyed the views of the surrounding peaks, though.

Audubon  Sucess!

Hiked up the eastern slope on a sunny day. Sure a good way to escape the near 100 degrees in Denver. Headed over to the saddle to do Paiute as well but the weather turned so we dropped down to Blue Lake.

1st 13er of the year  Sucess!

Beautiful Blue sky, perfect day to summit a mountain. Highly enjoyed this peak. My second Indian Peak.

My 1st alpine summit!  Sucess!

Used this as a test piece before attempting to climb one of the mighty 14ers. For me, its where the obsession began.

Wind Wind Wind  Sucess!

Peaceful hike until the scramble. Winds were amazing. I had to stay on all fours to keep from blowing away!

Lightning  Sucess!

We summitted Audubon and then scurried back down the trail in heavy rain with hail mixed in, along with really loud thunder.

Great hike! Plenty of fun talus towards the top and excellent views of Long Peak and the surrounding Indian peaks.

Several  Sucess!

Don't ask the exact date because I don't remember but July '05 was the last time attempt, I ran into a nasty thunderstorm this time around but there was several other times that I did make it. I just can't keep track any more

Southeast Ridge  Sucess!

Nice solo hike, fun little class 3 section. It clouded up pretty quickly and prevented a traverse over to Paiute Pk.

Southeast Ridge  Sucess!

Fun climb up the Southeast Ridge route. Then we went over to Pauite afterwards. The 3rd class ridge was some fun climbing.

Beat the heat  Sucess!

100 degrees on the plains, but long-sleeve weather on the top at 8 a.m. Short-cutting the snow bowl on the E didn't save much time, was too tame for a glissade, but was refreshing to try anyhow. My fiancee was wearing slicker pants than I and could slide all the way to the bottom drainage.

Via West Ridge  Sucess!

Traversed the ridge from Paiute to Audubon. Lamentably, only the Crooked Couloir was still in otherwise we would've climbed Audubon first. Pretty sad that all the snow if basically gone in mid June.

Route Climbed: Brainard Lake Winter TH, Mt. Audubon Trail  Sucess!

I made it from the entrance gate to Brainard Lake without snowshoes. I used snowshoes to get several hundred feet above treeline. Once above treeline the snow was consolidated. Departed Winter TH at 7:30am, Summited at 12:17pm, Back at TH 2:59pm.

Standard Route  Sucess!

A great first mountain. Took my daughter and nephew. Started them on what I hope to be a lifelong hobby.

SE Ridge... nice.  Sucess!

A good ridge climb. Completed solo which is not recommended I guess. The "notch" area is definitely beyond class 3 in April. Prob class 4 in summer too. But all went well. Had some clouds over the divide blocking most views. Snowshoes used below treeline in afternoon. Wanted Paiute Pk. too but had no visibility to do so... finished with "Not-ubon", descended E slopes.

Class 4 SE ridge  Sucess!

Went for standard route and diverted to SE ridge last minute because it looked a lot more interesting! "it almost feels like we should have a rope for this..." Consulting Roach's guide it is 4th class, however briefly. Recommended.
