East Ridge Direct  Sucess!

Solo. Not too exciting other than the DC, the reclimb, and one short part afterwards. But went fast.

Up and down quick  Sucess!

Late start, weather approaching, ditched ER route and ascended the normal descent. High winds on summit and dark clouds. 1 hour later summit was not visible and rain statrted. Cold temps, too. ER looks awesome but glad we chose wisely or we would have been in trouble. Will return!

East Ridge  Sucess!

Parked at Fall River Reservoir and climbed the East Ridge, then over to Parry and Eva. The willows coming down off Eva sucked! But the East Ridge was a delight.

Great day but  Sucess!

Don't glissade in shorts. Frowned upon.

Nice Fall Hike  Sucess!

Other than the normal high winds this time of year, perfect weather and a great hike. From Fall River Reservoir.

East Ridge  Sucess!

Very nice climb and scenic views of the Indian Peaks Wilderness!
A 30m rope was long enough to rappel from the lower anchor at the notch. Good scrambling and easy climbing sections - probably more difficult in winter than now in snow-free conditions.

Lovely day  Sucess!

I was at a conference in Winter Park and after that, I woke up very early and hiked Colorado Mines Peak, Flora, Eva, Parry and Bancroft. What a lovely September day!

East Ridge  Sucess!

Very fun day climbing the east ridge with Jeff and John. The early and unconsolidated winter snow made for a few dicey spots but it all worked out. I'd like to go back when the snow is good!

Nice Loop  Sucess!

Did a nice loop from Bancroft, Parry, Eva, and Witter. Once back at the reservoir we were disgusted with the amount of trash that has been left behind. Pick up some but we soon could no longer carry anymore.

East Ridge Direct  Sucess!

What a hoot this route was! Minus the fact that I allowed myself to lose concentration and take a "spinner" on the rappel (THAT will get the blood flowing!) this route was a blast. This route offers all you could want in a Spring mixed route: Narrow snow ridges, hard snow for cramponing, spicy rock steps (which might be easy in boots but pose a bit more challenge with yer spikes on), scrambling... The weather gods looked angry a few times, but ended up smiling on us in the end.

5 Peak Day  Sucess!

Climbed via East ridge along with Parry, Eva, Flora, and Whitter. One of my most memorable days of solo mountaineering.

Bancroft from Perry  Sucess!

Climbed Bancroft from Perry, hard to get to Perry but easy to Bancroft

East Ridge  Sucess!

Really nice climb. I enjoyed this more than Kelso Ridge. We didn't see anyone from the lake all the way to the summit. Scree descent sucks.

from Berthoud  Sucess!

My turn around peak in the trip I did from Berthoud Pass. Along the way to Bancroft I also reached the summits of CO Mines, Flora, Wittier, Eva, and Parry, and I visited Breckenridge Peak on the way back to Berthoud Pass as well for a total of 7 summits.
