steep snow on NE Ridge  Sucess!

Pristine snow climb from the amphitheater to the NE Ridge and glacial conditions in the amphitheater. Great couloirs this time of year. What a magnificent summit!

Intimidatingly loose  Sucess!

Got off route a bit on the way up and got into some loose crap. The descent was fine. The view of the Bells from the top is great. Leah was with me which made the climb even better.

Fun day  Sucess!

Fun climbing up on the class 4 below the summit ridge! Took the trail back down.

Northeast Ridge   Sucess!

Loved the scenery, loved the "leap of faith," loved the ledges. Not too fond of the green strip of death or the kitty-litter covered ledge system higher on the mountain. Also, had a bit of a spooky experience with a mother mountain goat and her kid. She was coming at us with a slightly curious, slightly annoyed expression and an aggressive stance. Not fun on loose Class 3/4 terrain.

South Ridge  Sucess!

Second time summtting, this time from the south. Long day starting at UN 13,631 making for a long traverse. Last 4th class chimney topped off a great day. Still one of my favorite 14ers. With Kiefer.

Re: NW and NE Ridge Routes

Hello! I was coming up the talus field as you were heading down. Nice to have met you.

South Ridge  Sucess!

Finished on Pyramid Peak after an impossibly long and mentally taxing ridge climbing from 13,631...2.15 miles south.
South Ridge is complicated, loose as all shit and in my opinion, not recommended.
Thank God we had great weather!!

Standard Route   Sucess!

It first seems that this is a formidable mountain, but the standard route is well cairned and the majority of the route to the summit is easy to follow. Incredible summit view.

Whew  Sucess!

After being shut down on Pyramid a bout 3 weeks before, Tim and I decided to give it another shot. And this time (with no snow) we found success. What a peak! Very challenging!

NE Ridge Fun  Sucess!

Joined Eric for his 51st fourteener. Got an early start to beat the predicted thunderstorms and other hazards. Had the mountain to ourselves all day except for one mountain goat on the summit (8:30am). Ascended a bit climbers right which proved a little more tricky, descended easier route.

unpossible  Sucess!

incredible and scary climb. We took a couloir and two large snowfields up to the 13000' saddle. From there we followed the standard route mostly to the summit. A 5.7 pitch or two was our reward for losing the route above the green rock. We descended the standard route where we could find it. Perfect day, awesome partners...

Challenge  Sucess!

Challenged by route finding but made the summit. Sat on top on a beautiful day and watched a pilot in a glider circle the peak. What it's all about!

I'll do this one again  Sucess!

This is fun - at least once you get up to the saddle.

Up  Sucess!

The route from the Maroon Bells parking lot is straight up. This peak also holds some special secrets for me as well.

Solo Summit  Sucess!

One of my favorite days in summer 2009. My fiance came up to the shoulder with me and then I was alone to the top. http://www.14ers.com/php14ers/tripreport.php?trip=6808&parmuser=JB99&cpgm=tripuser

West slope  Sucess!

Hideous choss maze from Crater Lake. There were ducks once I hit the WNW ridge, and a mountain goat who knew the route.
