tour of the mountain  Sucess!

went up with Mike, Cary, and Craig to do the Y Coulior. snow was too deep past Barr Camp, so we opted to go above treeline before dropping down and traversing to the N side of the mountain. Short on time, we got suckered into doing what we thought was the most eastern coulior of the N face, which actually dumped us out back on the NE ridge, which we dropped off of to continue climbing the E face over moderate mixed and icy terrain. still didn't get to do the route we wanted, but it made for a unique tour of the mountain. took the train up the following weekend when my buddy was in town only to find a herd of fat tourists who wouldn't leave the concessions.

South ridge  Sucess!

Continued my quest to climb Pikes in every month via as many routes as possible. The south ridge is a very scenic hike with amazing views of The Cirque. The cog and road were closed, so I had the summit to myself for the first time ever!

Via Crags  Sucess!

Went up Crags in a 2 day trip with my dad and older brother. A little culture shock up top. Beautiful otherwise. Cool rock formations.

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.

Day-hiked the Barr Trail. Great hike but what an ugly summit!

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

Whoopee...  Sucess!

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

Long day hike  Sucess!

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.
