Standard Route from Radio Towers  Sucess!

Least favorite 14er so far - carrying a camera was almost a waste, except to get shots of my fellow hikers. Trail (and road) to around 12,700' is good. Lots of talus and scree from that point to the summit. Threatened rain all day (7AM-2PM), but held off till we got in the car!

rocky top  Sucess!

least favorite part was all the rocks at the top- tricky when wet

I like it on top

Soutwest Ridge  Sucess!

Steep climb up through the canyon, but fun popping out at treeline. Friends first 14'er. Weather held off for us to summit.

Standard Route  Sucess!

First 14er for me. Enjoyed the abundant talus.

Another great one  Sucess!

Third 14er, and again, climbed with my brother and his dog. Weather was absolutely perfect at the top.

via Mt. Princeton Road  Sucess!

Camped at about 11,000 at a perfect site, funny thing was all the guide books / online descriptions say the road is fairly rough especially above the radio towers. Well, around the corner after the radio towers we just so heppened to run into a brand spanking new mini-cooper from NewYork coming down the road! Either that car is bad ass or the road isn't as rough as it is made out to be. The climb was fairly easy except for a sore knee from Mt. Antero the day before. Number 21 on the way to 54.

Beautiful  Sucess!

I love the view of this peak after coming over Trout Creek Pass. I have climbed this one twice.

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 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.

number 2  Sucess!
