Hiked the road  Sucess!

This was my first climb of Princeton. I hiked the road from Young Life Youth Camp parking lot.

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!

Perfect Weather.

My 3rd 14er  Sucess!

Climbed this with Mike Mills in August 2000. We were staying nearby and had a few hours to kill. We drove up to 11,000 ft. and hoofed to the top and back in no time at all. The weather was perfect!

Late day hike  Sucess!

Got out to Mt Princeton kind of late, had to go back to the little town store to grab some sunblock. Went up alone, ran back down when I saw on the summit that some dark clouds were coming in. Probably the fastest 5300ft I've ever lost while on foot! Started raining once I started up the car, talk about luck.

#25  Sucess!

We drove up to the radio towers and hiked from there. There were gliders all over the place and one flew so close that those of us on the summit could see the pilot sitting in the cockpit. Frightening but amazing. Great views.

Princeton  Sucess!

The first time I tried this mountain I followed a group of people up the wrong trail and ended up having a "learning experience." The second time I tried, found the right trail and succeeded!

via the Radio Towers  Sucess!

Not a bad hike. If you're going, might as well follow the dirt road to the end and summit Tigger Peak on the way.

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.
