Boring  Sucess!

Ugly pile of rocks. This is my least favorite climb to date.

from Mt. Princeton road  Sucess!

Still very deep snow. Had to rope my son to me (he kept sliding off the face). Duchess did great.

Lucky Day on Princeton  Sucess!

Hitched a ride both up and down the jeep road, which saved our group from a long and boring hike on this road. Started near the radio tower around 6:45 and summitted around 9:45. Spent thirty minutes on top and returned to the road (and jeep ride) by 12:45. Overall, Princeton was a boring walk-up with minimal views on yucky talus...not the prettiest mountain in the Sawatch range, but I'm glad to have done it and ticked it off the list. Princeton was my 27th 14er, halfway done!

Radio Towers  Sucess!

I hiked Princeton with a group. This was my 2nd time on Princeton. The weather was great, despite some clouds encroaching as we reached the summit. We spent nearly an hour on top, then headed down to the saddle and on to Tigger Peak.

Solitude on Standard Route  Sucess!

Hiked with Max and Brangwen (my hounds) from the CT crossing on a Monday. Saw one jeep full of people on a tour, and that was it for the day. Very peaceful.

Standard Route  Sucess!

Climbed Princeton via standard route from ~9500 ft (Colorado Trail crossing). Nice views of Antero and Yale.

(07/05/2011): Climbed from towers with Michael and Eli. Returned over Tigger. Beautiful weather, nice views.

Lots of Talus  Sucess!

The date is a guess, but it was sometime before graduation. I can't remember the route we climbed, but there was a lot of talus and jumping from boulder to boulder. Fun climb, though.

Princeton Standard  Sucess!

It's a long trek from the TH up to the summit but worth the views!

Next time...

This was the climb that brought me back from a 3-year hiking hiatus. Unfortunately, I wasn't in very good shape then and we stupidly decided to hike from the Young Life Camp instead of driving up the road to the actual trailhead. Next time, however, I will get to the summit.

Summer & Winter x2  Sucess!

8/21/05 - Hiked from around 11,000 ft on the Mt. Princeton Road. Went up the standard route (never-ending talus) and over "Tigger" on the way down.

3/15/09 - Winter summit from 9,000 ft (start of Mt. Princeton Road). Went over "Tigger" on the way up and then down the standard route.

12/31/2015 - Variation of the standard route up and over Tigger both ways. Very cold but pretty New Years Eve Day.

Princeton  Sucess!

Only 14er of 2008. Climbed with my buddy Tim, camped just above the radio towers the night before. Great day out in the mtns.

Dusting of Snow  Sucess!

The road up was no match for my rental Kia Rio, and the climb had just enough snow to get the shoes wet. Nice views especially of Antero!

Long ago  Sucess!

Long ago, with a dog. Take care of the poor dog's feet...

pretty boring  Sucess!

Hiked with Sarp, Paul and Manou. Pretty boring walk-up. Had to stop and turn around a couple of feet below the summit due to oncoming thunder storm. Not sure I will climb it ever again.

From towers  Sucess!

Late start almost cost me the summit. I stood at the memorial for the lightning victum and pondered whether I had time to summit or not. It did make me think twice.
