Icy Shadow Canyon  Sucess!

trail was ice packed from the recent traffic and warming/freezing conditions which made for treachous passage. almost slipped and killed myself 1,2,3,4.....many times, don't remember. the devil's thumb looks awesome from this side.

Route Climbed: Fern Canyon to Bear Peak, then traverse over Date Climbed: November 27, 2005  Sucess!

Climbed this as an extension of a hike up Bear Peak. Cold and windy, with some icy sections on the trail. This hike (NCAR - Bear Peak - South Boulder Peak) is great --- easily accessible, great views, and difficult enough for a nice training piece or a day hike with a mixed-ability group.

Route Climbed: west ridge of bear pk. Date Climbed: late march /or early april 2005  Sucess!

this is my favorite mtn. in close proximity to boulder. the top has great views, all the way south to pikes. last time i climbed it the entire mtn. from the saddle up was covered w/about 3 ft. of solid snow pack. this was fun w/o an axe.

Very nice hike with the typically amazing views of Boulder and the high mountains that the peaks of the Flatirons afford.

Have used this as a training jaunt several times. Great steepness, perfect elevation for cardio gains and great views of the Indian Peaks. Expect ice on the trail during winter and early spring.

After my friend ditched me and I could not do my planned climb of Dreamweaver today, I decided to go for a workout on South Boulder Peak. Up in 1h10m, down in 48m. approx. 2800ft. I am sure I will be sore tomorrow!

Did this on a cold windy day. Could not stay on the peak long, it was just too cold.

One hell of a steep hike! We did it with snow on the bottom and the top of the mountain. Don't think we would of made it without our instep crampons. The top was very slippery.

This is the first of the Boulder Mountains me and my wife have done.

Route Climbed: Shadow, Fern, BP West Ridge... Date Climbed: 2002-2004  Sucess!

I like to do this climb along with Bear and Green in the winter, especially when it is snowing. The area is gorgeous, and the snow keeps away the summer crowds.
