During a road trip in the United States in august 2008 I climbed Mount Chapin. Continued to Mount Chiquita and Mount Ypsilon. Mount Chapin is the warming-up for what is still to come and although is bypassed by a lot of hikers, it is very rewarding to climb the trilogy in one day...
Took the use trail to the top of this peak with surprisingly expansive views of the park.
First car at Chapin pass on a Sunday morning at 6am. Summited promptly before going on to Chiquita and Ypsilon.
The CCY trek is a terrific intro to Alpine hiking!
Went straight up talus slope of point 12,XXX that sits behind Chapin, then walked small saddle to summit. Good warm-up for the day.
Hiked up Chapin, Chiquita and Ypsilon. We had perfect weather with fantastic views all around.
Hiked up Chapin, Chiquita and Ypsilon. Beautiful day. Still some snow on the ground, but not enough to be much of a problem.
This was my first-ever Colorado summit, and they just keep getting better every time I go back!
Very nice 360 views except for what Chiquita blocks to your east, and a good acclimation-day objective for us flatlanders.
From Fall River road, my son and I went up Chapin, partly in the midst of a large herd of elk. Truly spectacular. We also saw elk in Estses Park when leaving before sunrise to get to trailhead.
First in line, and yes Tim, MAD PROPS FOR THE EARLY MORNING DROP-OFF!
With Eric Holle. From Chapin Pass. Watched the sun come up about 6am with nice colors. Good hike feeling good. MUCH LOVE TO MICHELLE AND SARAH FOR THE 5AM DROP-OFF AT THE PASS! KISSES!
Nice climb. Cold despite major-league heat wave in Denver.
Two days after Longs Peak we did the "easy triple" of Chapin, Chiquita, Ypsilon. Perfect weather all the way and we made friends with a Marmot who let me get within 3' to take his picture.
Started a little late, first Summit of Mummy Mania. We only got 5 done as a nasty storm chased us off Hagues at the last minute.
First one at the trailhead at 6:15 AM. Only saw about a dozen people all day! Hiked to the false summit first, point 12392, followed by Mounts Chapin and Chiquita. Wonderful hike above treeline with awesome views.
First peak on our Mummy Mania tour. The last peak, Mummy Mtn, looks so far away from there!
From Chapin Pass...have climbed it 4 times. All great! Saw my first sunrise from a summit here...
