A Ski in the North Bowl  Sucess!

One of us skied from the summit, not I. The west flank was pretty windblown so we decided to drop into the deeper and steeper north bowl and it was a sweet descent. A long trek back out but somebody had blazed a trail already.

Sawtooth Traverse  Sucess!

A much nicer day. the ridge traverse across to the Sawtooth is a lot of fun. Some very cool exposure on the north side that you can play around with. You can choose how gnarly you want to make it.

West Slopes Solo  Sucess!

Beautiful day...wore shorts the whole time, just needed a vest for a bit of wind in top.

Like walking in the mall  Sucess!

String of climbers just like mall walkers. Met a gentleman on his 483rd 14er summit.

West Slopes  Sucess!

Yeah. Nice day out despite the grey clouds and wind. Thought we might get some static on top, but conditions remained good enough. Good training day and an opportunity to show a friend their first 14er.

West Slope  Sucess!

Went with my sister, her 10-year-old son, and good friend Adam. Memorial Day. Had a nice climb up the easy west slope trail. Trail was rather muddy with a few snow and ice patches. Trail was pretty busy. Lots of climbers around the summit.

My bloodhound rocks  Sucess!

Took my sister, girlfriend and my two dogs up this one- all first timers. The bloodhound was 5 mnths old, and complained the least!

Busy Mountain  Sucess!

Trail was busy with many other hikers and we had to share the summit with about 20 other people. It still had great vistas and was my sisters first 14er.

Not The Best 14er  Sucess!

But I can't wait to go back and do the Sawtooth Ridge.

Via Abyss Lake basin  Sucess!

Parked off the Mount Evans road and headed down to the basin. I recommend this route very scenic and nice finis to the summit. Part of a 10 day 18 14,000 ft. summit solo climbing trip.

Southwest Slopes  Sucess!

Trying to get over to Evans too via the Sawtooth, but a wicked storm blew in so that my hair was standing straight up and my partner kept shocking me. Terrified me into being more prepared and starting much earlier from that point on.

First 14'er

First summit attempt, a lot harder than anticipated, but very fun. I will try again this summer when the snow isnt up to my butt.

Western slope

Made it to 13,800. It was a very windy day and we added three miles to the day by having to park and walk to the trail head. We spent too much time in the willows and we decided to turn back to make to the truck my nightfall, which we barely did. It was dark by Georgetown. Overall a great day. Again soon.

Route: West Slopes  Sucess!

Pretty easy stroll. Got a very early start to beat the masses. Then headed on to Sawtooth and Evans. Good stuff.

Casual Front Range hike with the masses. Hard to beat now, with the boardwalk in place.
