Pikes Peak. First and oldest mountain freinnd  Sucess!

first climbed with Mom and Dad and brother, I have since lost track of the times I've climbed this wonderful mountain and the countless days I've spent on its lower slopes. Just out of town and worlds away.

Winter Crags  Sucess!

Harder day than expected, the snowstorm from 2 days prior wrecked havoc on any previous trench from near treeline and beyond. Active construction site on the summit to replace the summit house.

From Devil's Playground  Sucess!

Started half way up at Devil's Playground parking lot. Pretty uneventful. We did see some sheep along the way.
The summit is under construction and takes a lot away from the experience.

With Brit, Journey, Emma, Carson  Sucess!

Took the easy way up and then ran down to one of the shuttle stops. Beautiful day. Excited to come back and run more some time.

Pikes Trail Run  Sucess!

Great run up Pikes, 4.5 hours round trip (but 18 miles because I missed the ONLY fork in the trail & added the entire crag trail to the run. Beautiful peak.

CO Trip  Sucess!

Long climb, distance wise. Not difficult. Beautiful views.

Crags trail  Sucess!

Snowed about a foot or two a few days beforehand and I was apparently the one to break trail. Lost the trail a couple times on the way up. Moderate amount of post-holing to get to the toll road. Never could find the trail after that, so lots of post-holing again. Post-holing while doing the rock scramble was particularly unpleasant. Made the top as the throngs of cars began to arrive for the day. Thankfully, I was able to hitch a ride down to where the trail first intersects the road and eliminate some brutal down-hiking.

Discovered that the original true highpoint of this peak has been removed.  Sucess!

While my wife visited the summit visitor's building/tourist shop with me, she wasn't game to visit the actual highest point with me since that point was in the middle of an active construction zone. In my discussion with one of the vendors who works on that mountain, I was told that when construction is finished in a year or so, everything including the summit benchmark will be put back in it's original condition. Yeah right!!!

Long day  Sucess!

Left Manitou at dawn, summited mid afternoon, hitch-hiked down. A lot of work for a 'hiker's peak.'

Barr Trail  Sucess!

We started hiking at 5:10 a.m. and summited at 11:10 a.m. Beautiful day with few clouds in the sky. Luckily for us, we have some friends in Colorado Springs that wanted to drive to the top. Got a nice ride down. Saw maybe 10 people tops on the Barr Trail and most near the top.

NW Slopes  Sucess!

Climbed up from NW Slopes starting at Crags Campground. Good route, tiring but not extra challenging.

#24  Sucess!

via Barr Trail. One of the nicest graded trails I've had the pleasure of being on. It was quite the culture shock seeing all the fat people on top complaining about the lack of starbucks on the top or whatever the equivalent is.

My first 14er  Sucess!

Took the railway up... extremely windy at the top! Beautiful blue skies around noon (though views were hazy), but even with the cool weather and fall colors, a huge thunderstorm built over the mountain and ended up covering the state all the way to the Kansas border.
