One of the easiest 13ers in the state if you do it from Summit Lake, a 20 minute walk. Did Warren on the way down from Evans, then onto Rogers and Goliath.
Went up this to get better photos of the summit lake area en route to Evans.
Climbed with Rogers and saw a group of mountain goats on the ridge. I also saw plenty of bighorn sheep on the sides of the road. I climbed Rosalie, Epaulie, and Epaulet before driving to Summit Lake.
This might be the easiest 13'er in Colorado.
En route to Evans.
Did this after I came down from doing Mt Evans from the lake. It was soooo close I had to hit it. :)
Easy hike while the in-laws milled around the lake. Nice to get away from all the people.
We (Brad,Andy,Neil, Betsy and myself) left the Echo Lake Trailhead at 7am this morning with the goal to reach Mount Evans and camp on the way out. Due to mixed snow/no-snow/ice conditions, our progress was slower than expected and we did not reach the Warren/Spalding saddle until 2:30. Thus we decided to hike to the summit of Warren from where we had great views.
Beautiful day and great camping close to the Chicago Lakes.
Long day from Echo Lake Trailhead. Summitted in group of five (Georg, Betsy, Andy, Neil and myself). Original destination was Mount Evans, but because of snow/ice conditions and time constraints, we decided Mount Warren was a more reasonable goal. Awesome weather and a fun climb.
I was surprised to see an SP page for this mountain! Hordes at the lake, but not a soul on Warren or Rogers. They're not the most exciting summits, to be sure, but they afford a quick and easy wilderness escape. We saw a jackrabbit on Warren, the highlight of our alpine amble!
A TR is available here, though the info. on the mountains is limited because there wasn't a whole lot to say!
Did this one in about 25 minutes from the Summit Lake parking lot. No one else was on it and it was nice to get away from the crowd at the lake for an hour or so. Cool views off the northwest side.
