Elbert  Sucess!

Great day on a great mountain. Started to rain just as we hit the tree line on the way down. Darryl

Great first 14'er  Sucess!

We had a phenominal day... zero clouds. Took the Southeast trail from the lower trailhead/parking lot. 7 hours total (including some time to hang at the summit). Lots of fun, great views.

Black Cloud Ascent  Sucess!

My last 14er of that summer before I had to move out of CO for a while. Friends and I did the Black Cloud trail which turned out to be the perfect choice. We were the only ones to climb that route that day. Quite a change of scenery to pop out on the summit to 100 people.

Route Climbed: East Ridge II  Sucess!

Took the CEO of the company I work for and his wife up. My second trip up. It was a big day for them. I was able to score a leave of absence to do Everest partly as a result of this.

East Ridge  Sucess!

Climbed from the 4WD Trailhead - only one on the mountain as far as I could tell! The snow in the trees was awful so I ended up following a snow-free gully until I could find a relatively clear way to the ridge. The snow above treeline was fantastic and made me wish I'd brought my skis - brought crampons & ice axe instead. Snowshoes would've been a waste of time. Weather was great, albeit a little cold and windy on top. 3hrs 20min up, 2hrs down.
