Barr Trail  Sucess!

Hiked in Sat. morning from Manitou Ave because the main parking lot was full, adding another mile at least. Hiked with a full pack to Barr Camp and camped across the way. Met some nice hikers and woke up the next day, hit the trail at 6:30 AM. Made the summit around 10:40AM, back to Barr Camp for the night by 2:30PM. Hiked back out to the car. 28 miles RT with 7,800' of elevation gain.

Up the Barr trail  Sucess!

Started at 410 AM, summit at 1030 AM. Fifty minute break on top eating food in the mob scene cafeteria and then a five hour descent to get back to my car in the power plant parking lot at 425 PM. The summit parking area had three cars with antifreeze spraying out of them but with the views, I can see why people make the climb/drive. It was well worth it, especially on such a nice day.

Pikes  Sucess!

Made it to the summit from the Barr trailhead in 5.5hrs. Summit was cold and cloudy so no view. Got up there at 8:15 so no doughnuts either :( my knee bothered me my whole descent and made it take a lot longer

Devil's Playground  Sucess!

Took this route due to the Barr trail being to long for my time constraints

Crags Approach

A strong wind-chill (-20F) turned us around 1,000' below Pikes Peak summit. Light fresh snow true to forecast gave us good winter climbing in April! Our buffs froze solid, with stinging ice chips in the incessant >45mph winds, contributed to a turn around or face frost-bite. Broke trail the entire way.

crowded on the summit

Climbed Barr trail once and the y-couloir once. Want to go back up via the hero traverse in the winter to avoid the crowds at the summit.

Sad summit.  Sucess!

Through the night  Sucess!

Hiked the whole Barr trail through the night and into the morning - a long day without sleep, but it was a great hike anyway!

Birthday hike  Sucess!

Great day to hike. Ran out of water about treeline and drank from the springs at the staircase, reupped at the summit with fat tourists gawking at this "mountaineer." Had a nice jog back down in the rain. saw some Mountain goats near treeline.

Feast on a 14er  Sucess!

Auto race occurring on ascent, then joined by crowds from cog railway on top. This was the most food I've ever consumed on a 14er but made it back to Crags CG despite that.

Bagging Pikes from Crags  Sucess!

Went with the girlfriend from the Crags Campground through Devil's Playground. Great hike and awesome weather. This was my 4th 14er behind Sneffels, Wetterhorn, and San Luis. This hike is much longer than I expected, although it is not technical in the slightest besides some snow patches towards the top which are probably gone now...I have a lot more respect for Pikes after climbing it. Be sure to get the doughnuts from the top whichever way you go.

2 Geodetic Survey Markers  Sucess!

Up from the Crags with wife and youngest son. My third time up Pikes Peak. My son found two geodetic survey markers within a dozen or so feet of each other. I believe both said 1953. I didn't know there were two. One for state, one for federal?

Redemption on NW Slopes  Sucess!

2nd try after first attempt 4 weeks ago. Much less snow this time and trail was already broken above treeline! Posthole-city on descent but can't complain because weather was PERFECT. Sunny and blue sky most of time! Wind at the right time to cool down!
