West Slopes  Sucess!

Not much to say about this one. You could land a plane on this summit.

Quite an easy 14er. Perfect for a first timer too. I only met a few people. Went and checked out the ruins of the Climax mine and Hilltop mine. Good weather, very dry. A good day.

Not a long hike but cold weekend with high winds on the ridge. You could alwost lean 45 degrees into the wind without falling. Beautiful dark blue skies that day. 14er #10

This mountain is completely destroyed by old mining activity. If you're going for all of them, you just gotta muscle through this one. The only fun part is the summit ridge - had a nice cornice to deal with which made an otherwise boring 14er a fun one. From the top, you can see there's a nice drainage on the east side of the valley that is really fun to go down in the snow vs. the way up. You can get some glissading in and you skip all the tailings piles on the west side that you hated climbing up and around.. Follow it and it comes out right back on the 4wd road just below the final gate on the road. Just don't go in it when avalanche conditions are bad...death trap if something triggered.

Great climb with Bill of Dearborn, IL. New views, save a great snowy ridge. Easy climb, even in winter white out conditions, save for a bit of routefinding.

The most uneventful 14er I've done. This is a very good beginning 14er. This will let you begin to interpret weather issues at altitude without overtaxing yourself.

Excellent day, perfect weather. Climbed Sheridan, Peerless, Horseshoe, Sherman, and Gemini. Got tired right below the summit of Dyer and headed down.

Very easy, short and enjoyable climb despite some incredibly strong winds. Great day in the sun and early snow with climbing partner, Alan Arnette.

Easy by 14er standards, though there was quite a bit of scree and loose rock. No one else was coming from the Leadville side today, so I was surprised to find myself alone at the trailhead.



If you park at the road closure sign, make sure you walk up the road for 3/4 mile before diving into the basin at a cairned turnoff. I bushwhacked quite a bit before finding the trail. After that it was a slog up rocky slopes all the way to the summit.



A few false peaks, and a long ridge on top.

My first 14er, hope it's not my last. Think I did pretty well for an overweight and old flatlander from Indiana. Thanks to my new son-in-law, DJ, for showing me the way. I love you son.

Climbed with my ten year old son. His first fourteener. There were probably 100 people on the mountain this Saturday of Labor Day weekend. I was surprised at how late many of them were starting given the clouds forming.
