X-mas Eve, just me and the mountain  Sucess!

Hiked the Crags route, started in darkness. First one on the summit that day, so I won all the accolades of the train riders.

Crags  Sucess!

Pikes Peak was my last Front Range 14er. I climbed with my CMC BMS instructor, Robert. We had planned to climb the Eolus group this weekend, but the weather was not looking good out there. We camped the night before, started at 6AM, summited at 10, nabbed Devils Playground summit and Teller County Highpoint, and arrived back at the parking lot arount 2:45PM. The weather was OK: pretty cloudy but it did not rain or snow on us. Lots and lots of tourists at the summit.

Angry Mountain Gods  Sucess!

Went total cheeseball and drove to the summit. Stepped out of the car and promptly sprained my ankle on a rock--first painful hiking injury I've ever had. Next time I'm hiking; it's gotta be safer!

First 14er, first backpacking trip.  Sucess!

The trip that finally made me a true Coloradan! :) It was both my first 14er and first backpacking trip (well, second, techincally - I backpacked up to Barr Camp a couple weeks prior, woke up the next morning to find it was the wknd of the PPA/PPM, so didn't summit that time around). Have been up several times since, including a PPA finish in 2005.

Ole' Pikes  Sucess!

Grew up next to this mountain, and it took having a friend fly in from New York to finally get up. We climbed on north side via the crags route. Had lots of fun!

Barr Trail  Sucess!

We hiked the Barr trail after we got out of class at about 1200 and got started about 1300. It was hotter than hot that afternoon. Stayed about 1/2 mile past Barr Camp and made it to the top the next day and walked back down.

Respect  Sucess!

I didn't hike the entire route from the bottom but I did make it to the summit. I was 13. Got lost on the way up. Panicked. Great experience for instilling respect for the mountains on a young kid.

Same as Wawa.  Sucess!

Same as Wawa below me. Magnificent, challenging northeastern-ish approach. Perhaps as high as 50 degrees (temperature, not slope) at the summit.
