Worst 14er  Sucess!

A miserable hump over large loose talus. Will only return at deepest snowpack towards the end of winter, with skiis.

Eh.  Sucess!

Was planning for Ellingwood Ridge on La Plata, so it's not surprising when the late June snow forced me south to Princeton that it was less than epic. Nothing special, but still happy to reach the top!

Lots of rock  Sucess!

Climbed Princeton with my family. My sister got altitude sickness, but she made it, what a trooper. Lots of rock, but great views.

lots of rock hoppers  Sucess!

Summited Princeton on a sunny day starting from about 10,500` on the road below the radio towers the day after summiting Mt. Harvard. Crowded trails and summit, I didn`t like this route very much but I had to scratch it off of my list.

Long Day  Sucess!

Parked at lower trailhead. Accidentally summitted Tigger Pk. Great day, but exhausted afterwards.

Talus anyone?  Sucess!

Picked a nice day with a breeze cool enough for me to keep the jacket on.

Talus Dogs  Sucess!

The trail is great until you hit the talus on top. It didn't stop 6 dogs from making the summit today.

Memorable  Sucess!

Note to self: Next time, take the right keys up the mountain so you don't have to throw a rock through the truck's rear side window when getting back to the trailhead.

East Ridge  Sucess!

A little elevation training with rkymtn and his wife before our Rainier climb in a couple of weeks! It was good to be able to get up above 14k again after all the 13ers I have been working on lately, of course I haven't seen that many people on a mountain since, well the last 14er I did in summer :)

Great Views, Boring Slog  Sucess!

A poor substitute for the snowbound Ellingwood Ridge on La Plata. Fantastic views on a clear day; however, one of the most boring climbs I've ever done. A typical Sawatch rock slog better done in winter. A visit to the chalk cliffs and the drive up to 12,000' were definitely worth it though...

Most memorable part of the climb: CRAZY SWIFTS (birds) cruising at 60 mph around the summit. WOWzer...

No sleep & 60mph winds. Almost fun.  Sucess!

Climbed with Matt Payne. Camped at the towers. Huge winds. Got no sleep. Left camp at 2am, summited early morning. Crazy winds all the way up. Slush on the way down. Mean day on Princeton, but got some incredible views of sunrise at 13,000ft. Totally worth it!

post-holing despite snowshoes

Too much snow to get through and it took several hours just to walk the switchbacks on the way up to the radio towers. The 4WD road was closed so I had to start at the Jesus camp parking lot. Stopped hiking 400 ft. below 11,000. Going back in better weather.

Cloudy Day  Sucess!

I took the very steep south Grouse Creek route and camped above treeline. I followed the south ridge and hit snow at about 13,500' but never needed any snow/ice gear. The ridge was slightly sketchy when it turned eastwards but overall it was very enjoyable and I saw no one.
