SW ridge  Sucess!

Climbed with my wife. Great weather, not much wind until we turned around. We had the summit to ourselves- won't happen unless you get an early start. Nice hike.

SW Ridge  Sucess!

less snow than I expected, timing was good because storm with high winds and blowing snow came in as I returned to Loveland Pass-- definitely a reminder to go prepared even on short, easy treks

This was a quick outing for Haliku and me. The route was windswept and straight forward. Overall, this was a leisurely ascent with great views.

Southwest Ridge  Sucess!

Got an early 7:00am start to beat the crowds at Loveland Pass. Great views from the ridge. Sat alone on the summit for about a half hour soaking it all in!

Route Climbed: Southwest Ridge  Sucess!

Hiked this with my wife and brother. It was super windy with gusts easily over 40 mph. Other than the wind it was a good hike for a saturday morning.

This was my most recent climb of this convenient peak. I often drive to Denver for business and the last few years I have made it a point to stretch my legs here. Beautiful views.

Route Climbed: Southwest Ridge Date Climbed: April 24, 2005  Sucess!

Very windy and visibility was limited due to a storm that blew in. Two others were hiking up to the ridge to ski a chute back to their card on US6.



The round trip was under 3 hours, and the snow cover was very limited. There were alot of cornices on the final pitch, but I stayed on the trail and to the west side to avoid them.

This is a great beginner's hike into the mountains. For experienced hikers, they may want to continue on to Unnamed Point 13,118' and Grizzly Peak on the same high tundra stroll.
