Beautiful  Sucess!

From Radio Towers  Sucess!

Parked just above the Radio Towers. Good weather, I was moving slow as it was my first time above 12K in many months.

From 8900 feet!  Sucess!

Both of my dogs (such troopers!) and myself summitted! Over 5000 feet of elevation gain, and just under 7 miles to the summit. (It did take us 6 hours...)

Looking at Mt Princeton from US 285, it sure gives you a feeling of accomplishment!

A fine day  Sucess!

Started from the Radio towers. Hardly a cloud in the sky all day and very warm. Hung out at the summit for 1.5 hours. KirkT posted a TR on 14ers.com. The trail is mostly snow covered still. Would recommend an ice axe and safe travel techniques for avy terrain. Snow is melting FAST.

East Slopes  Sucess!

First one for my wife and it was perfect. Little snow close to summit but beautiful. Camped just past radio towers and hiked from there. Hiking during the week keeps the crowds away..

East Slopes  Sucess!

Another one of Colorado's 14ers in my back yard growing up. I made this summit several times. I've done East Slopes from the 4WD parking and the trailhead @ 8,900'. It's 13 miles from the trailhead, but that's why we are here, right. (GO BVHS class of 1998)

more interesting than average  Sucess!

Not too much effort given the road access. Still found it more interesting than several other Sawatch summits.

Good hike!  Sucess!

Started just under 11,000 feet to abide by the Colorado Rule. Took my friend from Nashville along, he made it a few hundred feet below the summit before altitude got to him. Not bad considering! Great weather with the only challeng being knee deep snow in alot of spots.Makes for a sprained ankle but there was not enough snow to justify snowshoes yet.

2nd time east slopes  Sucess!

I had climbed this peak 29 Jun 2003, and went back this time to help my granddaughter get her 5th 14er. We were slow, as it was her first 14er of the year, and because snow moved in as we approached the summit. But we made it, and enjoyed a sunny afternoon.

Bristlecones touched my life  Sucess!

We skiied in and set up camp under a beautiful tree. I swear I felt a glow from spending time with something so old and strong.
Late climbed in summer with Ross Schnell, Dirk, Jim and Ben McClain.

Standard route  Sucess!

Left Radio towers at about 6am and summitted at 9:30am. Very pleasant climb. Followed the trail right on top of the ridge once we reached the saddle and it was much more solid than the lower trail.

Climb "with brace" On!

Route Climbed: East Slopes  Sucess!

Beautiful weather in the morning, headed up the E slopes. Attain the ridge as soon as possible to avoid slick scree/dirt on the trail if you climb up the E face of Princeton. Storms rolled in around 11:30-12.
