Northeast Ridge  Sucess!

Some snow crossing boulder field, other than than than route was obvious most of time. Nice and easy climb.

Very nice fall day  Sucess!

We did this route after a week of not so nice weather. This tricky ridge was icy, and had snow cover amounting about 6 inches in spots. The clarity was great and the mountains were beautiful.
I was a little sketched as I didn't bring my crampons though.

NE Ridge  Sucess!

First fourteener with my girlfriend. Nice climb and mostly easy with some moderate exposure coming down the NW ridge toward Conundrum. Glisade was a great time. Rock is definitely super loose. Great way to spend a day. Thanks to Amos Mace for his hospitality at the Mace hut ~10,800.

Great Time

A fun climb on the North East Ridge. It snowed a little bit. It was horrible rock as usual in the Elks. The glissading was a kick. But a rope would be a waste of space to bring really.

In good Spring condition  Sucess!

Traversed over from Conundrum. Saw two ski decents down the North Face chutes. High wind conditions on and off all day.

Beautiful Hike  Sucess!

Awesome intro the Elks. Super loose rock on the way to the ridge, but managed to come away unscathed, despite a couple of close calls. Highly recommended, but be careful!

Northeast Ridge  Sucess!

Be very careful not to get sucked up into the NE ridge early. There are some cairns that people have marked in a very steep, unstable and dangerous boulderfield. A friend was almost crushed by a boulder twice his size when it rolled over him. He manged to come away with bumps and scratches. Be careful!!! This almost became a nightmare but actually ended up being a great day. The hike is easy but in adverse conditions could become tricky. Besides a few light showers and some nearby storms, we had good weather for the most part.
