Quick hike  Sucess!

Princeton was a great, short trip on the way home from Colorado Springs. It was a fun heap of mostly consolidated boulders and scree typical of Colorado 14ers in the Collegiate Peaks range.

Got a lift up the road - yay!  Sucess!

And, for about half it, down the road... With Megan Berry. A dull hike on the main drag somewhat enlivened by coming off down the ridge and over "Tigger Pk".

A beauty from a distance.  Sucess!

What a great mountain from a distance but once on that non-stop boulder/talus pile it's not that impressive. Good day, nice weather and redemtion because we were weathered out in May. Not a peak I need to go up again though.

Hell hath no fury...  Sucess!

...Like a 14er in a summer storm. Summited at 11am under mostly clear skies. One hour later it was black skies, thunder, lightening, and then marble hail for at least 30 minutes. Felt bad for the people standing on the summit in it, two of which appeared to be rocking Nike minimalist gym shoes and no jackets. To each their own. It was 41 degrees when we got back to the car, 4k feet below the summit. I should mention that I took a 2wd 4runner to the radio towers at 10.5k feet. They say the road is 4wd, but all that is required is decent clearance. It was not a terrible drive as long as it was dry. Descending on two inches of hail was less enjoyable, but still made it fine.

No more postholing!  Sucess!

Pleased to say no need for spikes and no more postholing! Road was quite accessible in my Outback. Car-camped just past the communication towers. Very windy when you get over that first ridge, but then the wind dissipated. Windy again when I descended, at the same place, makes me wonder if it's one of those wind tunnel phenomena there - so hang in there if it happens to you! Great day otherwise, and the summer hikers are coming out now - busiest summit I've had all year so far (except for Pikes).

E Ridge  Sucess!

solo in September, an easy hike with the pretty Aspen leaves changed in full yellow and a few inches of snow towards the summit.

Towers  Sucess!

Climbed from the towers with Brian. Nice day till the thunderstorms came. Nice calf cramp on the descent and the flickering of electricity in the trekking poles was scary...but otherwise fun trip.

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!
