Long day  Sucess!

This one sucked, only because the 4 mile long hike back after re-entering the trees on the standard trail.

Southwest Slopes  Sucess!

Nice day for a quick hike, took 2:10 to summit. Nasty weather moved in after I got back into town.

Earns Its Name  Sucess!

I didn't see a soul all day. The route is better than the guide implied. Weather came in fast. I descended through hail, snow and rain.

Standard route on freakishly hot day  Sucess!

Some nuisance snowfields along the way but otherwise a great day. Shaved a mile off the descent by glissading a long section just before the saddle with S. Massive. Luckily the weather was freakishly hot so my ass dried off quickly!

Great Day  Sucess!

Beautiful sunny skies and enjoyed the summit by myself.

Massive Slog  Sucess!

Snow in many forms - hardpack, corn, slush - made for quite a slog, making the summit that much sweeter! Gorgeous spring day with the usual 40 mph breeze up high.

Re: Stormy

That was a nice trip, minus almost getting struck by lightning. :)

Stormy  Sucess!

As soon as we reached the summit, clouds blew in and we jetted to the bottom. We spent the night off-trail above treeline at around 12,000 ft.

Lots of Marmots!  Sucess!

This was my first fourteener and one of my first hikes in Colorado. My first experience with this level of altitude was a trip! It was really quite busy at the summit and there seemed to be a rotating crowd. While I was up there a very large lightning storm blew in suddenly and it became a difficult situation finding a safe spot to go so go early! There were many marmots near the summit which was wonderful also. :)

NE Ridge  Sucess!

Gruellingly long day from the fish hatchery. 5-6" of freshies al through treeline. Great bluebird day. Absolutely dead-calm at night on the way down.

Windy  Sucess!

The hiking was great, the summit was miserable due to wind.

2nd Colorado 14er  Sucess!

Up the Southwest Slopes and down the Main Ridge Trail. Great views on Elbert, which I had gone up the day before.

Not Quite

We got to about 13,250 and had to turn back because of weather. We had started at 5:30 and ended up turning around at 8:30 am! Rain, snow, thunder and LOTS of dark clouds made that an easy decision. Also, after my experience on Mt. Lindsey I opted to go back. Bummer especially after driving 5 hours from Philmont.

Southwest Slopes  Sucess!

Only got to spend about a minute enjoying the summit at about 10am, as the weather deteriorated quickly. I've never descended so fast.
