Route Climbed: Barr Trail Date Climbed: 7/22/98  Sucess!

Long, fairly boring day hike timed perfectly so at the summit I could watch obese flatlanders disembark the cog railway direct to eating cheese fries in the cafeteria. All the while I was starving because I didn't pack enough food...came pretty close to dumpster diving...need to ski the couliors on the east side next.

Grew up in C. Springs, climbing the Peak many times in all seasons. Now I use the west side for training.

Route Climbed: From Crags Campground TH Date Climbed: 6-27-93  Sucess!

In order to avoid the Barr Trail crowds, and to make the climb shorter, we backpacked up a couple miles from the Crags Campground TH, camped in a meadow, then started early the next morning for the summit as a day hike. What a weird experience to climb a 14er with a restaurant on top and packed with people who had gotten there by train!
