St. Vrain in the rain  Sucess!

Hiked up under cloudy skies, but still had a nice view of the Wild Basin and a cloud shrouded Longs Peak to the north and views of the Indian Peaks to the south. It started to rain on the way down and rained much of the way back to the Mount St. Vrain trailhead.

Good snow travel  Sucess!

The final push after a long battle with lingering drifts on the approach was pleasant, with good travel snow from the foot of the hill at the saddle with the UN to the southwest to a few hundred yards below the summit. My wife caught a glisse down half the hill as I tried to foot-ski, for the most part unsuccessfully. Met an interesting fellow, Josh from 14ers.com, whom we climbed to the summit and back with from the saddle.

Cruiser Winter Climb  Sucess!

It was cold and windy, but not difficult. We snowshoed the whole route, including the rocky saddle. It looked like the skiing was amazing.

From St. Vrain Trailhead  Sucess!

It was cold with some snow on the ground and got colder as the day went on. From St. Vrain we went over to Meadow Mountain. I've been back to summit three more times since then.

East Slopes  Sucess!

There was a descent amount of snow and wind on this climb - even for late October. I only saw a few other hikers this day and the solitude was welcome. I'd recommend you bag neighboring Meadow Mountain while in the neighborhood. The summit of St. Vrain offers great views south towards the Indian Peaks :)

Route Climbed: St Vrain Trailhead Date Climbed: July 12, 2005  Sucess!

A sweeping vista reward at the summit with a great view of the entire northern Indian Peaks wilderness. Plenty of isolation on these not-so-well-travelled summits makes this an ideal hike.

Route Climbed: East Slopes Date Climbed: May 1, 2005  Sucess!

Great late winter climb with a bunch of new snow!! This climb made a great combo with Meadow Mountain for Chris and I. St. Vrain would make an excellent ski decent with the right conditions.
