A nice walk with great views at the top.
Ascended the East ridge and then cut over ~12,600 feet to the small lake and decided to take the steepest and furthest north coulior. It was pretty fun and felt like over 50 degrees in steepness towards the top. Then continued to slog in by then softening snow to the top. Clear day with an excellent glissade back to the lake on one of the shallower couliors.
Views were great but snow slog and subzero wind chill made the hike less enjoyable than it should have been.
It was nice.
climbed for the second time on a beautiful summer day with my 10 year old son and three friends, first climbed in back in September of 1996
little tedious but nice
Climbed this on a quick trip home to Colorado after being marooned in Greenland's snow and ice for 6 months. This left me way out of shape and the trek to the top was exhausting. My friends Dave and EJ kept berating me to keep up. Made it to the crowded summit and came down in record time.
It was a little fun (nervous!) driving the river crossing at night, but glad we did given the altitude and hike it took off the climb.
standard route no problems the climbing gets better up on the summit cone
Backside trip was a wash. Met Vince on that one. Good guy.
Solo with hundreds of other people :/
Near white-out conditions at the summit, 70mph wind gusts, blowing snow, and the forecast just said 50% chance of rain, lol. Everybody basically turned around because they couldn't find the trail as it was covered by the snow. But, I just followed this one guy who kept going all the way to the summit. Did Wheeler Peak a couple of days before. HP #15
Pretty Hike, good views from the top.
Fun and easy hike. Placed on my list for future ski descents.
With Katie and Megan, both 11. Down via Bull Hill. A fine route.
