East Ridge  Sucess!

Great starter 14er. Get there early because this route gets packed on the weekends. It was a traffic jam as we were coming down. A number of mountain goats in the area.

people, dogs, on the airl  Sucess!

I was successful along with 40 other hikers, lots of dogs, some fighting each other, and an array of ham radio operators talking to other hams on other 14ers. East Ridge Route.

East Ridge  Sucess!

First fourteener. Summited with my son, Colin (age 8). What a great experience. I'm so proud of him. He was a real trooper. We met some really great people on our climb. All of them encouraging Colin and congratulating him on the summit. Our summit celebration was cut short when he began to show signs of altitude sickness. He snapped back once we got to the tree line and I even had to ask him to slow down so I could keep up.

finally!  Sucess!

Finally enjoyed a PBR on the summit, my fifth attempt! Crazy weather on this mountain, though Saturday's weather was near perfect.

Good times with a crew of 8  Sucess!

As my 5th repeater on the summer, I enjoyed a pleasant easy sloping hike up the standard route with 7 others. For 3, it was their first 14er. We carried little flags to the summit for an American celebration. A great day in all!

West Ridge  Sucess!

We tackled most of the towers head on, making this a solid class 4 climb. I would recommend this climb to anyone interested in a nice ridge climb.

This was a great introduction to 14ers for two in our group...short, gentle, and great views from the summit!

Perfect Day  Sucess!

The weather was perfect, clear sky, cool breeze...if only I didn't have to go to work after the hike I would have done another hike in the afternoon!!

1st 14er  Sucess!

Great 1st 14er experience. Totally got me hooked on climbing these things - and climbing in general. Perfect day - saw lots of cute little Pika's! Would suggest this peak to anyone!

East Ridge  Sucess!

Beautiful, sunny day, if a bit on the hot side. Loved all the deep snow still at the summit. I never cease to be amazed by all the people leaving the parking lot to hit the trail at 2:00 pm, hiking into the thunderheads. Whatever puts the wind in your sails, I guess. Climbing partner: Tom
