super windy day  Sucess!

parked at the end of plowing on Guanella Pass road and slept there in the car. The hike to the pass along the road was easy, but once above the past it was so windy! I had to crawl up in some section in order not to get blown off my balance.

from Guanella  Sucess!

I was looking for something quick to climb and this fits the bill. Nice enough hike but nothing spectacular. Thank god I was not climbing Bierstadt- there was an incredible number of cars at Guanella Pass on a weekday

Best work meeting ever  Sucess!

Took a work meeting up to Guanella Pass and skinned up Square Top with a colleague. Summited, skied down, and pieced together a number of snowfields for a great ride. Sunny, 60's temps, light breeze.

Wind  Sucess!

This was a great trip. Started at Naylor Lake, hiked up to the ridge to the Squaretop, Argentine, then continued a very loong ridge to Edwards, went back to Argentine and finished on Wilcox. It got dark when I got back to the forest around Naylor Lake and there was mess of fallen trees and deep snow. Lots of postholing!! There was a very strong gusty wind on the summit of Square top that I could not stand, I'd say about 50 - 70 mph. It got better later.

Lakes trail  Sucess!

Did it from Guanella Pass on the Friday before Labor Day. Followed the trail to the lakes and went up from there. There was a crowd on Bierstadt, but we were just about the only ones on Square Top.
