Via the Loft  Sucess!

Lots of fun...though missed the correct turn for Clark's Arrow and spent extra time getting over to the keyhole route to complete my loop.

Dragons Egg up, Meeker Ridge down  Sucess!

A day trip from Denver, with sodapants, starting at the Sandbeach Lake trailhead. A rib above Dragons Egg led us almost directly to the summit. Nice little knife edge on the way down from the summit towards the lower (eastern) peak and Meeker Ridge: you slip, you are gone. Eleven hours from TH to TH. Trip report.

Via Dreamweaver  Sucess!

Second time on Meeker. Always shocks me at how slabby & exposed that summit ridge is. Pristine weather.

Dreamweaver  Sucess!

Drove from Salt Lake the day before and camped near Estes Park. Blasted the route and then drove straight home afterward. The climb took about 8 hours roundtrip with SP user dunsum.

We hit it in perfect conditions--lots of ice, very little snow. I think we got the last good weekend of the year on it, but it allowed us to solo the whole thing quickly and comfortably. Still possibly the best route I've done in the mountains.

Dreamweaver is the only way to fly  Sucess!

Love Meeker, but only because of Dreamweaver ice route.

Up Iron Gates, Down Loft  Sucess!

I really enjoyed this one. I finally made a good decision for my descent- I took the loft route down. There wasn't as much loose scree as I thought there would be along the "Iron Gates". You need to be careful when taking the knife edge, but if you're used to exposure you shouldn't have much trouble with it, that is, as long as it's dry. Summit nap was great. Still a great day despite the wildfire haze.

Used the Loft Route w/Longs  Sucess!

A beautiful start to a long, long day.

Dreamweaver  Sucess!

Found great ice conditions at the multiple cruxes. Awesome climb.

should not be in the shadows..

An awesome hike. Did it back in 2001 and I thought this required more energy than Longs. A tough day out with an exhausting trough. Should not be in the shadows of Longs. Just as great.

Lambs Slide  Sucess!

Back down the Loft route and back to the car with daylight to spare on daylight savings day.

Loft  Sucess!

A fun climb with some army guys I met along the way. Then headed over to Longs, Storm and LW.

The Loft  Sucess!

Climbed from the Loft before continuing over to Longs. The sun rose as I was nearing Meeker's summit.

Dreamweaver Couloir  Sucess!

Climbed with Brenton Peterson (Fowweezer) in an eight hour car-to-car trip. The climb was in great, lean shape, but probably will not be around much longer - at least not until the next season.

via Longs  Sucess!

Solo climb in combination with Longs via Keyhole, then descended via Clark's Arrow to the Loft, over Meeker and Meeker Ridge and down the Iron Gates. Great "loop" climb!

Iron Gates + Meeker Ridge  Sucess!

This mountain really caught me off guard. For some reason, I thought it would be cakewalk. MUCH more challenging than I thought. Good exposure on the ridge and amazing views of Longs!
Iron Gates was cool looking but kind of a let down. Next time, Dreamweaver or Dutchman.

Many times via various routes  Sucess!

My favorite of all routes on this mountain is Dreamweaver.

Dream Weaver  Sucess!

I've climbed Meeker twice, once via the Loft and the other time on Dream Weaver. We hit Dream Weaver in perfect conditions, with the upper section as all ice, but very little rock required in the chimneys. Awesome route.
