Hiked it, then ran it  Sucess!

Hiked up the Barr Trail over 2 days with my family to get a lay of the land before I ran the Pikes Peak Ascent on 8/16. Success both times though weather on the summit was bad in both instances so we saw no views.

Ran the Ascent in 3:45 in a snowstorm in August. Go figure!

Via the Crags  Sucess!

Done this route numerous times. It's so much better than hiking through the crowds on the Barr Trail. Favorite time is Spring on tele skis; coming down the bowl from Devil's Playground is a blast!

Barr Trail, One Day  Sucess!

Made it to the summit in 5 hours 34 minutes. Timed it perfectly AGAIN so I made it to the summit just as the Cog was pulling up and 40,000 people poured out! Left right away and headed down. Did round trip in 9 hours 32 minutes. Will be back to beat time soon. Great hike, great mountain, Cog Railway is run by the Devil!

Crag's  Sucess!

Nice trip with a lot of snow, about a foot close to the summit. It was great that the restaurant was open and I could have a coffee. During another attempt in December 29th 2009, I fell on Barr Trail near 13000 feet and dislocated both shluders and was rescued. I repeated Barr trail approach March 5th 2012 and found the piece with this beautiful mountain.

My first 14er  Sucess!

I made it up the easy, but relatively long Barr Trail for the first time as an 8 year old. We began just before dawn and made it to the summit for doughnuts by noon. I have hiked it again numerous times.

fun walk  Sucess!

pleasant walk from Crags campground. Got to watch the bikers race up the highway. I was up there 35 years ago also but took the cog railway on that trip

Deceptively challenging

Lots of tourists arrive in Colorado Springs and think "Let's climb Pikes Peak!" Only to be pummeled for 13+ miles straight up. Friends don't let flatlander friends climb 14ers!

Doughnuts at the top! Yay!  Sucess!

So what if it's easy, I like hitting the majors! Funny thing was, other than a guy trying to mountain bike up (painfully slowly) I was only one on the trail that day and it's supposed to be a busy mountain. The parking lot at the top was hoppin' though!

First CO 14er  Sucess!

Little did I know the bug that it would plant in me for climbing mountains. Reclimbed every year since.

Barr Trail  Sucess!

Climbed this one solo. This was an enjoyable hike spent the night in Barr Camp. Weather hit on day 2. Long hike, but there was not as many people as I expected...except on the top.
