Total ascents = 3. As long as you've done this one, you might as well do Chiquita & Ypsilon.
Hit this 'hill' on the way to Chaquita. Gray, overcast day. Cool to warm weather with no people traffic. Saw some ptargamin on the way down!
Very easy mountain with nice views.
1st peak of Chapin, Chiquita, Ypsilon.
NIce summit on the way to Ypsilon and an attempt of the Mummy Mania...read more on that ordeal under my summit log of Mt. Ypsilon.
Peak #1 of Mummy Mania with Peter Sanders (pksander). The beginning of a really long, but really fun day...
Part of the Mummy Mania traverse completed with Chris Gerber. A very, very long day. See my trip report for more...
This is the first peak I ever summited in Colorado. I would now like to try the Mummy Mania Traverse.
1st peak of the day as part of the Mummy Mania traverse. There was still quite a bit of snow over the trail, so we basically bushwacked to treeline following the path of least resistance.
This was my first ever hike in Colorado. Having come from KS less than a week before, can you say: "NEED OXYGEN?!" Seriously, it kicked my butt from the get-go... my competitive drive kept me trekkin. We also summited Mount Chiquita and Ypsilon. The group started 20 strong, was 18 after Chapin, and was only 10 by the time we hit Ypilson. Yep, I wasn't the only one from SEA LEVEL in the crew! As I look back at this day, I laugh. I hiked in normal tennis shoes, and CARRIED (no pack) 2 nalgene bottles. Yep, I've come a LONG way baby! Enjoy it!
Climbed Mount Chapin twice. Once during July 2003 in preparing for Longs Peak, and once when climbing Mummy Mania with Ryan, Erin, John, and Andy.
We reached Chapin by dawn to kick off Mummy Mania.
Have climbed Chapin twice - once 3 years ago and just recently on Mummy Mania. I have climbed it from both directions now - and that is probably enough. The last time I climbed it - went from Chiquita over to Chapin - this time was the reverse. Last time we had to get AJ's canteen off the summit of Chiquita before we could continue the hike.
Great short summit hike with great views.
Arrived on the summit before the sun was up. This was the first summit on a long day of Mummy Mania.
