Bear-S. Boulder-Bear-Green traverse  Sucess!

"Stuck" out here on a business trip, gosh-darn. First hike in CO, and 'twas a great day. Snow on 98% of the trail, firm enough except the west side of Green, which was a post-holing nightmare. Weather looked like it was going to come in and sock me, but at every potential bail-out point on my loop, it didn't get any closer. Beautiful day bottom to top.

Shadow Canyon  Sucess!

Nice hike, though I am always amazed at how this and Bear peak both take it out of me. I had to take a few breaks along the way, but loved the views from the top. Some dark clouds were moving in making for a great contrast.

Perfect Day For It  Sucess!

Shadow Canyon was free of ice and snow. Snow on S. Boulder Peak itself, but wet enough yet even packed trail could be easily step-kicked. Hardly any wind coming over the saddle. Was looking at ridge run to Shirt Tail Peak. Don't know if it's possible, but looked like OK route from top of S. Boulder Pk.

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!
