Just N Apostle  Sucess!

Iffy weather with wet rock. Plenty of loose rock. Enjoy this one.

From Ice  Sucess!

North Apostle itself was just an easy snowshoe from the saddle, but the descent off Ice was fairly spicy with the new snow. Trip report.

Nice hike  Sucess!

Standard route + Ice  Sucess!

Lots of boulder hopping. Tricky route finding. Hiked to a higher lake before heading to the saddle. Still a great day. Headed over to Ice afterwards.

Easy summit after doing Ice Mtn.

North only  Sucess!

Went in for both North Apostle and Ice Mtn. Camped two miles in in preparation for another trip. On summit morning, my partner was really sick. I figured the trip was done, but after a long morning, he suggested we hike up and see what happens. So we were able to get North Apostle, but had to leave Ice for another time.

Nice Spring climb  Sucess!

Some nice snow remaining on the north facing slopes in the Apostle Basin...made for great snow climbing to the saddle. Upper ridge was snow free and the summit views were fantastic!

With Ice Attempt  Sucess!

Turned back on Ice about 30 feet from the summit due to slippery conditions, headed up North Apostle as a consolation prize. Great views of Ice from the top.

an unholy winter environment  Sucess!

solved the maze of the basin between north apostle and ice mountain to gain the summit of north apostle in winter(2nd ascent?). long, trying and exhausting day. didn't return to the car until hours after dark.

SW Ridge  Sucess!

Climbed North Apostle via SW Ridge from South Winfield TH before traversing to Ice Mountain. Beautiful weather, great views.

Ice + N Apostle  Sucess!

We did N. Apostle via the standard SW Ridge. Pretty good warmup for Ice Mntn later in the day. Very talusy approach, and ridge. Not horrible but makes for pretty slow goings.
TH 4:30
Summit North: 9:00
Summit Ice: 10:00
Back to TH 3:00
Lots and lots of talus hopping, and some wet rock made for a very slow descent. Long day, but definitely a great time on these peaks, that dont feel like they are in the Sawatch.

Nice Axe!

Apostle Traverse (N to W)  Sucess!

I'd been eying this traverse since 2005 and finally made it up there. The climb to North Apostle & Ice Mtn was really fun with big talus high up just below the saddle. The traverse to West and the descent were slogs!

Ice Cubed pt 1  Sucess!

via SW ridge (trail to Apostle Basin was easy to follow all the way, but it was a bit of a slog getting to the saddle between N. Apostle and Ice Mtn).

Route Climbed: Southwest Ridge  Sucess!

Uuuuhhh? What can I say? Snow conditions weren't that great, I was coming down with a cold and very fatigued. The final hour to the summit involved some poor weather / snow. I'm glad to have earned this one on the solo! When alone, your lows are lower & your highs are higher...

One out of three  Sucess!

Planned on the complete traverse, but the weather thought otherwise.....will be back to finish!
