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.

ENDLESS...do you hear/read me...ENDLESS false summits before reaching Elbert's true peak! Geeeez! I won't be doing Elbert again for a long time.

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.

Nice, HIGH walk up!  Sucess!

Despite some rainy weather, My son Lance, age 10, and my other son Travis, age 8, made it with me to the roof of Colorado via the South Mount Elbert Trail #1481. We had spent the previous night in Leadville which really helped us acclimatize I believe.

Northeast Ridge  Sucess!

There was snow above the first false summit. The weather was great, and there were a TON of people on this trail. It looked like ants on the mountain from the summit.
