Barr Trail, One Day  Sucess!

Made it to the summit in 5 hours 34 minutes. Timed it perfectly AGAIN so I made it to the summit just as the Cog was pulling up and 40,000 people poured out! Left right away and headed down. Did round trip in 9 hours 32 minutes. Will be back to beat time soon. Great hike, great mountain, Cog Railway is run by the Devil!

Crag's  Sucess!

Nice trip with a lot of snow, about a foot close to the summit. It was great that the restaurant was open and I could have a coffee. During another attempt in December 29th 2009, I fell on Barr Trail near 13000 feet and dislocated both shluders and was rescued. I repeated Barr trail approach March 5th 2012 and found the piece with this beautiful mountain.

My first 14er  Sucess!

I made it up the easy, but relatively long Barr Trail for the first time as an 8 year old. We began just before dawn and made it to the summit for doughnuts by noon. I have hiked it again numerous times.

fun walk  Sucess!

pleasant walk from Crags campground. Got to watch the bikers race up the highway. I was up there 35 years ago also but took the cog railway on that trip

Deceptively challenging

Lots of tourists arrive in Colorado Springs and think "Let's climb Pikes Peak!" Only to be pummeled for 13+ miles straight up. Friends don't let flatlander friends climb 14ers!

Doughnuts at the top! Yay!  Sucess!

So what if it's easy, I like hitting the majors! Funny thing was, other than a guy trying to mountain bike up (painfully slowly) I was only one on the trail that day and it's supposed to be a busy mountain. The parking lot at the top was hoppin' though!

First CO 14er  Sucess!

Little did I know the bug that it would plant in me for climbing mountains. Reclimbed every year since.

Barr Trail  Sucess!

Climbed this one solo. This was an enjoyable hike spent the night in Barr Camp. Weather hit on day 2. Long hike, but there was not as many people as I expected...except on the top.

Barr trail in the dead of winter  Sucess!

Zero degrees most of the day. Sunset around 4 pm. Minor frostbite on the toes. Overnight coming and going at Barr Camp.

Cheated  Sucess!

Can't say I technically climbed the mountain. Rode the cog rail with all 15 of my family members. They are not climbers, so it was fun to share in the moment with them.

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.
