pikes  Sucess!

Almost made a one day winter climb, but it got so windy, a thousand feet below the summit, we turned around. Did the 2007 pikes peak ascent, what a run! once in Aug. 08 with the dogs.

Via Crags  Sucess!

Solo climb right after the first big snowfall of the year. There was deeper snow than I was expecting, and ran into a few other solo hikers.

NW Slopes from Glen Cove  Sucess!

Celebrated my dad's 60th birthday by camping at Glen Cove, then ascending the bowl to join the NW Slopes route en route to the summit. He did great despite a few inches of fresh August snow above 13k'

Barr Trail Up and Down  Sucess!

I live in the plains and my knees are a curse so I hike quite a bit slower than most at high altitude. Started at the Barr trailhead with my brother and sister at Midnight. Reached the summit at 11:30. Headed back down at 12:15 only to dodge a thunderstorm and duck into the A-Frame at treeline for about an hour. Continued down the Barr trail back to the trailhead by 7pm for a total hike time of roughly 19 hours. The most brutal yet memorable hike of my life!

Drive up attempt fails  Sucess!

First attempt at drive up was unsuccessful when kid drove off the top trying to kill himself. Road was closed right in front of me! Had to come back the following day to summit. Pics at http://www.willhiteweb.com/colorado_climbing/14ers/driving_pikes_peak_198.htm

Can't say I'm really proud of this one, but at least we did Longs Peak the right way the following day.

Hiked up the Barr Trail with my brother. We started at 4:15 and made it to the summit at 10:15. The hike down the Manitou Incline was extreme.

the long way  Sucess!

Quite a long route, and it doesn't help your tiredness when people jump out of their car to greet you at the top!

From Glen Cove  Sucess!

Ascended right side of the bowl out of Glen Cove and traversed over to the NW Slopes route at Devils Playground. Nabbed Little Pikes on the way up and Devils Playground Peak on the way down. Didn't intend to summit Pikes but was too enticing from the top of Little Pikes. 10.6 miles and 3050' vertical for a fun day.
