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.

East Ridge  Sucess!

I really wanted to try the west ridge but decided not to since I was solo. Ran into a small family of mountain goats on the way up. See my Trip Report about doing seven 14ers in eight days.
