From Seven Bridges TH  Sucess!

Started around 7AM. Little snow to start, but progressively more towards the top. Lots of postholing along the ridge to the summit due to the snow sitting in the sun. Summit was a bit rough to reach due to loose snow with hidden rock underneath. Back at car around 3PM.

From N. Cheyenne CaƱon  Sucess!

Went with a friend for the long approach. Great summit views. A bit short of 5 hrs round trip.

Nice Day, Nice Peak  Sucess!

Can't believe I waited all these years to do this with the peak so close by. Beautiful view. With Deb and Ron.

With France's Finest  Sucess!

Hiked up with USAFA Faculty Hiking Group and 2 dogs. Took a wrong turn or two along the way and route ended up being 15 miles RT. Besides the nasty bugs on the summit, a gorgeous day.

St. Mary's Falls Route  Sucess!

Great hike up to the top. Some snow on the ridge from the saddle to the summit. Amazing views from the summit and the saddle. Loved it.

Mount Rosa Trail Run  Sucess!

Good trail run, a little snow up top, wet in some places on the road.

Memorial Day  Sucess!

This was probably the 8th or 9th time I have climbed Mt Rosa and I have to say I was pretty disappointed at the amount of garbage in Frosty Park. Most of the brand new fencing to keep motorized vehicles out of the meadow has been cut down. Witnessed dirt bikes on trails that prohibit motorized vehicles and lots of fresh tracks almost to the top of the main trail. Every sign is shot to bits. Dozens of trees shot down that were not shot down last year. Lots of garbage in the creek that leads to the reservoir. If this keeps up they will close that road. I've never taken the St Mary's Falls trail but I will next time so I can avoid Frosty Park. And to top it all off the summit marker at the top of Mt Rosa is gone.

Kids Fifth Mountain  Sucess!

Took the short trail from Frosty Park. Climbed w/ Tara (11) and Emma (9). Great time, but I think they liked the "off road" drive down #379 better than the hike.

My baby's first mountain  Sucess!

My wife and I hiked this with my friend and his wife, and my friend and I each had our 9-month-old babies (firsts for both our families) on our backs. Great family hike, and great way for my little girl to get her first mountain top down. :)

Great Mountain!  Sucess!

Another awesome hike to Rosa. Done this one several times and still love it. Always take the long way from St. Marys Falls, it's worth the extra miles.

4-way  Sucess!

Went from the 4-way trailhead, up past St. Mary's Falls. Came down through Frosty Park and Pipeline Trail to 7 Bridges Trail. Nice loop on a beautiful day!

From Frosty Park  Sucess!

My all time favorite for a mountain close by...

From Gold Camp Road  Sucess!

Climbed solo from the Gold Camp Road parking lot. There is still quite a bit of snow on the slope to the summit, but a good trail has been forged through it by previous hikers. Saw two other people and a small dog on my way back down. Round trip (including base of St. Mary's Falls) was about 14 miles and 4500 ft of elevation gain. The view from Mt. Rosa is exceeded only by the view from Pikes Peak!

Some postholing in April...  Sucess!

Nice climb and views of Pikes and the Springs. I'll do it again!

My favorite mountain  Sucess!

Had to do it again, after a too-long hiatus. I "cheated" to shave about 2 miles off the usual route from the Gold Camp Rd. parking lot, and climbed the ridge directly to the tunnel from Helen Hunt Falls. My measurements say this makes about an 11-mile RT, but, amazingly, TOPO! says only 9.2. Take your pick. Of course, snow and some postholing on the last 500 vertical feet. Had the summit all to myself.

Great!  Sucess!

Great hike. A little more snow than I expected.

Re: Great!

A little?? In February?? Holy s**t; what were you expecting!? But, yes, it is great; nice to see you guys' entry on the register.

From Gold Camp Rd  Sucess!

A very cold day this early in the season. I brought a Camelbak and my water was frozen almost immediately. 20s on the summit with 30ish mph wind gusts. Fun hike nonetheless and didn't see another soul all day (if you don't count a few offroaders that is :).
