East Face  Sucess!

A discouraging forecast scrubbed the original plan to climb Pikes with the whole family, so I took advantage of the a.m. sunshine to climb the rocky east face again, plus a little running in the canyon.

Mt. Cutler Trail  Sucess!

I climbed Mount Cutler with my Cub Scout Den. Quite windy. Nice hike, though. The boys thoroughly enjoyed it.

Mt. Cutler Trail  Sucess!

Easy hike up a well traveled path. Definiely worth checking out the spur as well as the peak.

before the snow  Sucess!

Caught the last sunshine before some snow showers rolled into the region. Climb number five up the east face. Made the top of the rocks in 35 minutes. Windy--which was new--but still nice.

Route Climbed: Mount Cutler Trail Date Climbed: November 10th 2005  Sucess!

Short and sweet! It only took me 2 hours to drive to the trailhead, climb to the spur, spend 30 minutes or so on the top, walk down and drive home. Awesome views of Rosa, Stove, Cheyenne, Seven Falls, the shrine, the Broadmoor, CS, GOG, etc... Just about anyone could climb this!

Route Climbed: East Face Date Climbed: 6 November, 2005  Sucess!

With just a little time available, I couldn't resist another climb. I varied my route just a little, staying even closer to the ridge between the east and north faces. It's more exposed, but actually easier than staying to the left. This, plus familiarity, gave me my best ascent time to date: just 37 minutes. Got one nice photo of the young crescent moon over the spur.

Tagged this summit again on the way to the top of Muscoco Mtn. to the west. A glorious, sunny fall day with hardly a cloud in the sky. The steep rock gets easier each time.

Route Climbed: East Face Date Climbed: 19 September, 2005  Sucess!

Warm, clear weather holding, so I decided to tackle the East Face again. I followed basically the same route as last time, although I think I took one or two slightly different turns near the top. Went with my little alter-ego climbing buddy, and took a couple of pictures of him at the top, but his picture of me cut off my head. Oh, well. Still thrilling, with some real exposure near the top of the rocks.

I've gone up the trail many times, but this time I finally did it the hard way--free climbing the rocky east face. See my trip report for details.

Always a nice evening hike. Got to the summit and watched the rain clouds roll in from the west. Got wet on the return trip.

Route Climbed: From North Cheyenne Mountain Park Date Climbed: Various  Sucess!

My wife Julie and I have hiked this foothill west of Colorado Springs many times for the great views of the city including the famous Broadmoor Hotel. With binoculars we can make out our neighborhood in the Briargate area of the city. Great after work hike!

Route Climbed: Main Trail Date Climbed: Numerous Times  Sucess!

This is an easy Class I walk-up, but well worth it. Great views of Colorado Springs and surrounding mountains. Very good family hike and dog friendly.
