The dog liked it:))
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!
I hiked Princeton with a meetup.com 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.
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.
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.
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.
It's a long trek from the TH up to the summit but worth the views!
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.
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.
The whole family, mom, dad, brother, and sister did it together, great day
Only 14er of 2008. Climbed with my buddy Tim, camped just above the radio towers the night before. Great day out in the mtns.
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, with a dog. Take care of the poor dog's feet...
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.
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.
Ascended Grouse Gulch to the SW ridge, then dropped off the NE ridge into Maxwell Gulch, my 4th and final 14er of Nolans 2008.
Great hike. Not crazy about the last 1,000 feet.
You get great cell phone reception at the radio towers. Great place to park in case you have car trouble or get stuck after the climb.
Solo with a full moon. Arrived on the summit just at sunrise.
hiked this thing alone from Frontier at age 14! whew! i was tired but proud as ever!
