One warm day  Sucess!

This was an unseasonably warm t-shirt day. Shadow Canyon is a great low altitude challenge.

Shadow Canyon  Sucess!

Cold! The high in Boulder this day was 6 degrees! From Shadow Canyon on up it was actually warmer than it was further down due to the temperature inversion which was going on. It was still cold, but I was hiking in my base layers. Once I got back down, I was shocked at how frigid the lower part of the hike was. I was spoiled with a broken trail most of the way through the snow.

S. Boulder and Bear  Sucess!

Made it from NCAR to the summit in about 2 hr 5 mins via Fern Canyon trail. Only stayed on the summit for a minute, for my buddy was waiting for me on Bear. Bear's summit is cooler.

Sunday Half-Day  Sucess!

Started from North Shanahan around 10am, took the Mesa Trail, then Shadow Canyon to the top of South Boulder. Didn't seem as steep as Fern Canyon but felt a lot longer in all. Great views from the top. Went back down the same way.

From Mesa Trailhead  Sucess!

I visited this summit fresh off the climb up the lovely Shadow Canyon. I loved the views from the rocky summit. I also enjoyed fewer people on this summit than on Bear. From the summit of S. Boulder, the Bear summit looks like a shopping mall, people lounging and milling about everywhere. Hiking partner: shannarae2k. Dog: Stimpy.

shadow canyon  Sucess!

2 of 2 this trip. The trail from the saddle to the summit was often buried but I managed somehow to stay on it.

My First!  Sucess!

I am that friend. Yay first summit!

Thank you Roam Around! That was a gorgeous day.

Next? I think the aches I earned on the slide down are almost better. ;)

#2  Sucess!

Took a friend up on her last day in town for her first summit ever! VERY icy trail in shadow canyon - crampons would have been nice.

Great day out!

First time  Sucess!

This was my first climb of South Boulder Peak. Most of the climbs were via Shadow Canyon. Several of the climbs included Bear Peak. After Bear it was common to descend via Fern Canyon.

Shadow Canyon  Sucess!

Good hike, easier than Bear.

Flat Iron Triple Play  Sucess!

Started at the South Mesa Trailhead, hiked up the Shadow Canyon Trail and then summited South Boulder Peak, then backtracked and hiked up Bear Peak. From there headed down the West Ridge trail and hiked up Green Mountain. Finished the hike by hiking down to Chautauqua Meadows. About 9 miles with snow on the ground. Nice hike on a nice post Thanksgiving day.
