Perfect Weather  Sucess!

Climbed the east ridge, and you could not ask for better weather to hike in. Hiked with some friends, and it was their first 14er. It was great.

13th State Highpoint  Sucess!

Awesome hike and great trail! Camped close to Elbert Creek Campground and got an early start. My quads were killing me from Mt Sherman yesterday but thankfully was able to make it!

Took my 9 year old up the South Ridge. We made the summit at 9:15 am after a 6:20 start. He was a real trooper. On the way down we watched the thunder clouds build and we were driving out by 12pm. Saw lots of people heading up.

HP #13 on 13 July, 2010  Sucess!

Intended to do South Elbert Trail. Found the old mining road, that dead ends and some tailings. Route found my way up the ridge, hit the 14er on the southwest slope of Elbert along the Black Cloud Trail and continued up to Elbert. Fantastic climb. Took 5 hours to go 11 miles roundtrip. Returned on the South Elbert trail.

No clouds on Black Cloud  Sucess!

Hit the Black Cloud trail at 2:50 am and summited around 8:20 under a beautiful clear sky in strong winds, with two partners close behind. We stayed on the summit for over an hour and left when it got crowded. What a view! We descended the scree slopes beneath the South Elbert / Elbert saddle and followed the creeks down the valley until they converged near the old cabin ruins and we rejoined the trail.

Final Fourteener  Sucess!

This was ranked 14er #53 for me, I have completed the list!! It was a great day to summit with a lot of great friends. I carried a grill to the top so we could have hot dogs along with our beer, shots and cigars! Thanks to everyone that I've climbed with over the years - it's been an amazing ride! And thanks to everyone behind the scene for your support!!

First 14'er  Sucess!

Drove nonstop from Texas with my brother and father to climb Mt. Elbert. Great trip! Got an early start and all three of us made the summit by 11am despite the heavy snow and wind at the top. Going back June 2010 to climb Mt. Elbert again along with Mt. Massive.
