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.

North Half Moon  Sucess!

I lugged snowshoes all the way up, but amazingly never had to use them. Nice morning. Trip report

Big Day  Sucess!

Last big climb on a 30 day Colorado Outward Bound school course. Woke up at 4, climbed Massive, came down and broke camp, and then hiked out to COB base camp in Leadville.

via SW slopes  Sucess!

A ton of snow, but a ton of fun. No clouds, minimal wind, awesome views.

from the main trail  Sucess!

Started just before dawn. My second 14er.

Some snow from a couple hundred feet from the saddle. Wind and slushy snow up to the summit. Was socked in a cloud up top, which cleared as I was descending. Back to the parking lot just before 3pm. Great climb.
