Edwards and McClellan  Sucess!

After a failed attempt on Edwards several years ago, it was time to try again. This time I was successful. Started at the old Waldorf Mill. While I was on the summit of Edwards by myself, I could look down on the Grays Peak trail and see a multitude of people hiking up Grays. Good to be by myself. On the way down I hit McClellan Mountain.

Horseshoe Basin  Sucess!

Got up pretty late this morning so didn't think I'd climb today. But the forecast was so good, I thought I'd try. Roach mentions Montezuma Road. Coming over Loveland Pass, I missed it, but found Gondola Road - which essentially turns into Montezuma, but I didn't know that at the time. Also, had to take the road slowly in my very low clearance Honda Fit. So I didn't start hiking until 10:30am. But it was great; saw practically no one (no one above the pass). A goat who wanted to summit, too, got my dog pretty worked up. Decided to get home and leave Argentine Peak et al for another day.

last person up this decade?  Sucess!

climbed edwards on a fine winter day, much better than predicted! used a gully with minimal snow to reach the ridge just before the first false summit. wind on the ridge wasn't that bad, yet the ridge was tedious under the cover of snow!(#31)

Bumble Bees! Date Climbed: June 21 1987  Sucess!

This is an easy climb. I recall flying straight up the side of the mountain at a fast pace and I remember a lot of bees here.

One other notable memory: There was a group camped near us that alerted us that one of their camp members was "assaulted and raped" by a man driving a Yellow Chevy Luv truck. That was pretty memorable as a 9 year old ;)

Waldorf Mine & SE Ridge  Sucess!

Fun little tour from the Waldorf Mine. Up the East slopes and down the SE Ridge. Awesome views of Evans/Bierdstat to the East and Grey's/Torrey's to the west. Probably one of the best 1/2-day outings close to Denver.

Nice Scramble  Sucess!

Did this peak from the Grays peak trail - nice scrambling near the end as I recall

Waldorf  Sucess!

Straight up from the Waldorf mine with a not-so-alpine start of 1:30pm. Fantastic weather with the rare lack of afternoon thunderstorms!

I did a quick ridge run from Edwards to Pt 12??? around Stevens Gulch. It was a great day until trying to get down!

Waldorf  Sucess!

This was my first time climbing Edwards. I then went over to McClellan and returned to Waldorf Mine trailhead. I also did Edwards 10-3-92 from Horseshoe Basin trailhead in a circle including Ruby, Grays & Argentine Pass. On 6-15-02 I did Grays and Edwards from Stevens Gulch to complete getting Edwards from each side and being on each ridge.

east slopes, north ridge  Sucess!

Squeaked in a last climb before serious snow flew. Climbed from the Waldorf Mine. A cloudy day, but relative mild. Felt good to get another Divide thirteener.

from Waldorf Mine  Sucess!

Last centennial of the year for me as we combined Edwards with McClellan, Argentine, Wilcox, and Otter. Last day w/o signicant snow as a big front was coming in.

Ascended the Argentine Pass Trail from Horseshoe Basin, and followed the ridge to Grays, over Mt Edwards. (Mt Edwards was the primary destination.) Saw many goats!

Waldorf mine  Sucess!

Cool weather and lots of low hanging clouds made for an interesting hike. Felt bad about taking the summit away from the family of resting goats!

Climbed Edwards via the Goatfinger Coulouir with Ben on a nice day. We went over to McClellan and ended our day with a nap on the summit of Kelso.
