Clearing Skies  Sucess!

Made the trek up this one with Sarah after climbing Quarter to Five Peak in the foggy/snowy morning. Glad the skies opened up for Old Baldy as the views of the Arapahoes from its summit are great!

From 4th of July with Quarter to 5

The weather cleared nicely for this peak and we enjoyed jaw-dropping views! Chilly on top, though. With Mike.

A nice hill.  Sucess!

After a year of physical therapy, I started easy mountains again, so on this trip I only hiked South Arapaho and Old Baldy. It was awesome to be again in the mountains moreover, everything was flowering in the Indian Peak Wilderness. Almost nobody climbs this hill but its a ranked (unlike South Arapaho) 13er!

Hey! That's MY nickname!  Sucess!

When I got off the plane from Indiana and picked up the dog, the weather was still really nice, so I figured I'd try for an easy, orphaned, ranked 13er. "Old Baldy" fit the bill. Car-to-car from 4th of July TH was 11:30am to 4:20pm. Not bad after coming from a few days at sea level and not getting much sleep the night before. The GPS said 8.9 miles and just over 3k gain; not sure I believe it.

Headed up after the Arapaho traverse. Very quite spot so close to a crowded trail. Loved it!

Tundra  Sucess!

That's about all I saw on this peak...and maybe a few Ptarmigans. Hit it after coming down off the traverse in full sun only to have the clouds move in during the 45 mins it took me to get over. Fled after thunder rolled past.
