East Slopes  Sucess!

My third 14er in CO. The place was like a zoo, shared the summit with at least 50 people. Great views but not my favorite hike, the downhill was killing my knees.

First in Winter  Sucess!

Beautiful day, easy walk up. Should have worn gaiters as the snow was slushy in the afternoon. Slightly windy up top, but perfect day in Winter.

Standard stuff on the standard  Sucess!

Great day, warmer than expected. Only a small snow bank (25 yards or so) near the summit, otherwise I was wishing I had brought trail runners.

Leading the CU Hiking Club  Sucess!

Led my first trip with the hiking club. Great bunch of kids! We had a blast and another gorgeous march day. All but two summited and everyone wanted to hike another 14er! I consider that the biggest success.

east ridge  Sucess!

High winds on upper slopes. Icy crust made skinning difficult without crampons. Good skiing on lower slopes, just before tree line.

East Ridge  Sucess!

Partnered with Axe, Val, Marcus and Rudy for a great day out in the mountains. Sunny in the morning with reasonable weather. A great training climb.

Climbed with Old Guide as our annual father and son 14er climb. Clouds rolled in early which kept the heat down as did the light rain we had during our return.

Climbed with rkymtn. A predawn alpine start saw us as the second vehicle at the trailhead. The route is well established. The wind really picked up above treeline making the final stretch to the summit cold and brief. It was a beautiful day--cold and sunny.

A long day. The false summits were a let down. I'd love to come up in winter and ski down. Due to a late start we didn't reach the top until sunset. We were glad for the flashlights we brought!

Several times  Sucess!

The west ridge was my very first 14er when I was 12. I've been back several times since for that route and the Cristo Couloir. I've never reached the summit via the east ridge route although I have descended that way and snowshoed most of it.
