Spalding from Summit Lake  Sucess!

Quick hike up Spalding from Summit Lake. Meant to go to Gray Wolf and take lots of pictures but my camera malfunctioned before I got to Spalding's summit, so I summited and then headed back to the lake. Will have to head up again for the pictures from both Spalding and Gray Wolf.

Nice Views  Sucess!

This was my 10th time climbing Spalding. The first time was on an unrecorded date in 1983. Many of the climbs were done as an Evans - Spalding loop. One time was in combination with Gray Wolf. A few times were just Spalding. There are many nice views from this mountain.

End of long day  Sucess!

Started at summit lake parking lot, went up Evans, across the sawtooth, up Bierstadt, back across the sawtooth and finally up Spalding to get get back to the parking lot.
The top of Spalding is nice and you get much of the same view as from Evans. Tons of people on trail from parking lot to summit, but still an enjoyable hike.

From Summit Lake  Sucess!

Steep hike up to the summit. A few people walked by and didn't even know that there was another named summit. Nice view of Evans.

Numerous cars and many people at the Guanella Pass TH when I arrived. Thankfully they were all going up Mt. Bierstadt. Once I turned left after crossing the creek I had the route to myself. The numerous paths through the willows and peat bogs all headed in the same general direction. The west slope is a workout with a lot of minor rock outcrops. I had a close encounter (>20 ft) with a mountain goat along the way to the top. Summit register was missing.

Long day  Sucess!

Started from West Chicago Creek trailhead, aiming for Mt Evans and Gray Wolf Mountain. Was delayed due to "map" issues, so settled for Mt Spalding and Gray Wolf Mountain instead. It was still a 16.2 mile trek, although through beautiful country.

Tag  Sucess!

Tagged en-route to Evans. This was a nicer-looking mountain with better views than Evans, itself, I believe.
