Reached "Meeker East" via Iron Gate from Longs Peak TH in approx. 5 hours, return was about 4 hours on this beautiful Sunday.......Sweet!
I reached Meeker climbing via the loft before heading toward Longs on a nice day. Great views of Longs and RMNP`s peaks. I descended via the keyhole.
Nice hike up in am, then continued up longs through the notch.
Another great day in the mountains.
my first experience with a couloir and ice tools! Loads of fun!
saw the high park fire smoke plume explode from the summit
via Longs from the loft. Made a quick jaunt over to Meekers summit. Fantastic views, interesting summit.
An immaculate Fall day to go up the Cable Route on Longs, around Clark's arrow, across the loft and along the full length of Meeker Ridge.
fun ice climb with mixed rock climbing.
Mike almost made it, but had the good sense to stop when it got scary.
Climbed the Iron Gates route then over to Longs (my 14er finisher!)
Hiked up the loft and glissaded back down. Pretty mellow route. Maybe a 3rd class move or two on the ledges but overall and nice, fun climb. I made Nathan Meeker proud!
Fun, mellow climb. I was expecting it to be more difficult. We carried a rope and light rack, but they didn't come out of the pack. Very little ice and a lot of snow. Caught delayed descending the slabs and should have came down the loft.
Climbed Meeker on the way down from Longs. Easy to the top, but endless scree and bolder hopping back down.
Great climb with my 60-yr-old dad.
Should have done it with Longs!
Climbed in conjunction with Longs Peak via the Loft Route. Excellent summit ridge. Loved the white cairns in The Loft. HA!
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.
Had the tiny summit to myself on a Saturday. Sweet.
1st time on Meeker, great climb, wish i did it im may as snow climb, maybe next year. Meeker is one fine monuntains, beats half of 14er in Colorado.
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.
