Summit Ridge  Sucess!

I climbed this twice before driving up Evans. I wish I could comment on the view I had, but it was raining, then sleeting, then snowing. I love Colorado weather! :) Even in the rain, it was a fun short hike. Next time, I hope to go on to Gray Wolf.

Part of a Spalding-Evans loop. Not a bad way to tour the area.

Great as part of a combo  Sucess!

Spalding is best when combined with some other peaks, Gray Wolf, Warren, and Rogers was what we did

Unofficial Summit  Sucess!

Too bad Spalding's saddle doesn't rise 300 ft. or more from Evans...than it'd be an official summit. It was still worth visiting!

Hit Spalding on way to Evans. Saw mountain goats and mule deer...made it worth it considering Spalding wasn't in the original plan :)

Route Climbed: East Ridge Date Climbed: July 14, 2005  Sucess!

Climbed Spalding from Summit Lake as part of the Mount Evans Loop route after work last Thursday. I left work at my usual time, and started the hike at 7:00. I made it back to my car at 10:00, but I didn't take the direct ridge descent back to the lake, instead opting to follow the Evans Road's path back to the lake.
