Too much scree  Sucess!

Very hard day, west up east ridge and couldn't get out of scree. Started down southwest slopes and got into another scree slope. The views were amazing though.

East Ridge  Sucess!

Beautiful climb up the east ridge. If you don't mind sacrificing a slightly longer day for no crowds and some decent exposure with fun scrambling, you have to take this route.

Silver Creek  Sucess!

That ridge must hold the world record for false summits. Crappy conditions below timberline (mud bog with slush-drifts), but nice day otherwise. Trip report

Standard route from Denny Creek  Sucess!

Beautiful Day. 1st 14er of the season. Some snow on the route which make for some tough going in a few spots. Fun glissade on the way down. 25th Official Colorado 14er. Matt was my climbing partner.

Snow and Ice  Sucess!

Approached on west face, via snow slope right below the summit. Snow storm and 40-50 mph winds hit us on the summit, so we didn't stick around long.

from Denny Creek  Sucess!

Plenty of snow and wind up high, combined Mascot for a nice early spring outing with Jordan W. It was my second ascent of Yale.

Fun Hike  Sucess!

Fun trip to take while on the Colorado Trail, nice to go all the way to the top instead of just over a saddle.

Early start  Sucess!

Started really early (woke up at the campsite around 3:45 am) but it was well worth it. Saw the sunrise at 14,000!

Colorado Trail Side Trip  Sucess!

Scrambled up the ridge from where the Colorado Trail passes by. A nice side trip, although my stashed thru-hike pack was chewed on by a marmot while we were heading up.

Denny Creek  Sucess!

Nice climb on a cool September morning. Bluebird day with a chilly breeze at the top. Left TH at 6:40 and reached summit 10:05, lots of nice fellow hikers on the trail.

Denny Creek  Sucess!

I made the mistake of going trail running two days before this hike. Ouch. The whole way down was torture. Nice peak, though.

Can't even remember  Sucess!

Can't even remember the hike up there, only the summit.

Denny Creek  Sucess!

A relatively easy Sawatch 14er with a pleasant few first miles through the trees followed by a steep grind up to the summit ridge. The ridge required more talus-hopping and scrambling than I had expected, which made it a ton of fun. Easily the best part of the hike.

Yale  Sucess!

Wife, dog and I via the East Ridge. Great climb and we saw no one else all day. Headed over to Mascot and then preceeded to have a miserable descent. Shoulda followed the east ridge of Mascot back to the trail rather than heading south!
