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.

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, 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.

Grouse Gulch/NE Ridge  Sucess!

Ascended Grouse Gulch to the SW ridge, then dropped off the NE ridge into Maxwell Gulch, my 4th and final 14er of Nolans 2008.

Radio Towers  Sucess!

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.

Southwest Ridge  Sucess!

Hiked the Southwest Ridge from Grouse Canyon Trailhead. It was very cold and windy - the batteries in my camera died. I couldn't see clearly for several hours after this hike due to the wind. This was my second time on Princeton's summit. The first was via the Mount Princeton Road from the radio towers a year earlier with my sister-in-law Kristy and father-in-law Steve.

Young Life Chalet

Spent the night in the chalet that Young Life runs at the end of the 4WD road. Awesome amenity.

Drove up there just to spend the night on a cross country drive. We had to hit the road early the next morning and didn't have time to summit, but on a morning walk I came face to face with a mountain goat in the fog. Awesome experience, but I gotta get back there to actually summit it!
