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.

Cheated  Sucess!

Can't say I technically climbed the mountain. Rode the cog rail with all 15 of my family members. They are not climbers, so it was fun to share in the moment with them.

X-mas Eve, just me and the mountain  Sucess!

Hiked the Crags route, started in darkness. First one on the summit that day, so I won all the accolades of the train riders.

Crags  Sucess!

Pikes Peak was my last Front Range 14er. I climbed with my CMC BMS instructor, Robert. We had planned to climb the Eolus group this weekend, but the weather was not looking good out there. We camped the night before, started at 6AM, summited at 10, nabbed Devils Playground summit and Teller County Highpoint, and arrived back at the parking lot arount 2:45PM. The weather was OK: pretty cloudy but it did not rain or snow on us. Lots and lots of tourists at the summit.

Angry Mountain Gods  Sucess!

Went total cheeseball and drove to the summit. Stepped out of the car and promptly sprained my ankle on a rock--first painful hiking injury I've ever had. Next time I'm hiking; it's gotta be safer!

Made it to the top w/o a car!

First 14er, first backpacking trip.  Sucess!

The trip that finally made me a true Coloradan! :) It was both my first 14er and first backpacking trip (well, second, techincally - I backpacked up to Barr Camp a couple weeks prior, woke up the next morning to find it was the wknd of the PPA/PPM, so didn't summit that time around). Have been up several times since, including a PPA finish in 2005.

Ole' Pikes  Sucess!

Grew up next to this mountain, and it took having a friend fly in from New York to finally get up. We climbed on north side via the crags route. Had lots of fun!

Long walk...  Sucess!

Went via the Craggs, long walk, honestly not the most impressive hike I have ever been on.
