Standard route  Sucess!

Climbed this peak with Dustin Kelley. Weather good, long drive in on dirt road. Straight forward relatively easy as far as 14ers go. #46 Colorado 14er with 12 to go! First 14er of this season...slow start.

Via West Creek  Sucess!

Hiked up from the West Creek Trailhead, via the Colorado Trail and the south ridge. This was my 30th 14er. Was joined by Rich Woessner, his 22nd 14er and my 6 month old Golden Retriever, Loki - his 3rd 14er.

Via the South Ridge  Sucess!

The end of a long week in Colorado. My tenth peak, over 27,000' of vertical at the peak and over 70 miles on return to the trailhead. I can't wait for next year..

Cebolla TH with Stewart  Sucess!

This was a great day despite the wind. The beginning of the traverse from Baldy Alto is a little grungy, but otherwise ok. The traverse looks longer than it is. Didn't see anyone else the entire day. I headed to Stewart afterwards.

from Stewart Creek  Sucess!

Got a late noon start after the long drive to the TH. Made it to the summit just before 4, which was an island of clear sky surrounded by T-storms. Made it back to the TH by dusk and drove home in the dark, watching out for the many elk. First time I saw a beaver, which made it worth it. Challenging for being such a long hike. Gravel pile of a summit isn't seen till almost the end. Feels very remote.

A long way for a hump over 14,000  Sucess!

I only hiked this one because it was on a damn list. Up Yawner gullies in an OK cirque of early season snow. The butresses on the neighboring 13ers, though, look much cooler.

Secluded is an Understatement  Sucess!

30 miles of dirt road just to get to the trailhead. The hike is fairly long as well, 12 miles round trip. The valley is full of stepped beaver ponds, and is beautiful. Didn't see another person all day.

First 14er  Sucess!

First 14er and the first time using Summit Post as a trip planning resource. Trail head status and the numerous Trip Reports really made this an enjoyable experience. No surprizes / walked right up to the summit. Trip highlight - Love those Cochetopa Hills!

From Stewart Creek  Sucess!

Quick hike up to the summit of San Luis from Stewart Creek TH. After summiting San Luis, traversed to the summit of Organ Mountain. Nice hike, beautiful weather, gorgeous views.

Stewart Creek  Sucess!

We found some delightful, un-ruined camping off of the FS road for a great night's sleep. In the AM, shortly after leaving camp for the Stewart Creek TH a mountain lion crossed the road right in front of my Jeep! The scenery along this route was better than anticipated. I loved the creek and the beaver ponds. There was still a lot of snow in the gully above timber line prior to hitting the steep uphill to the saddle. Higher on the peak, the snow was minimal. Beautiful day. I was dragging a$$ a bit, but enjoyed this plenty. After a quick lunch on the summit we descended, had a celebratory beer at the Jeep, cleaned up, and headed back to the Front Range.

winter hike  Sucess!

The trip started out rough for me due to very cold toes despite the air temperature being comfortable for winter. Had some route-finding issues and dense fog move in after dark. Couldn't see squat so we dug a snow cave assuming we'd have to bivy for the night. Fortunately clouds finally let up and we could make our way back to camp. Beautiful area in the winter. With Kiefer and my dog Zion.

South Ridge via San Luis Pass  Sucess!

Climbed this bugger with Stephanie Lynn from San Luis Pass. Exceptionally bad snow, some route-finding errors and white-out conditions (at night) made for an epic climb that fortunately, turned out alright.
Castricone7 was with us for most of the trip.

NOT an easy mountain in winter.
