Took the "Aaron Johnson" loop  Sucess!

Left Guanella Pass around 6:15 with only 20 or so cars in the parking lots. By the time I looked back around 7:30 it was more like 300. Descending into the basin just off the parking lot there was a little frost on the ground...Nice. I had the mountain all to myself; encountering people coming up once I was 30 minutes off the summit. Got in a nice glasade too.

Alone on Square Top  Sucess!

By the time I got to Guanella Pass at 7:45 there were already hordes of cars parked, but nobody was on their way to Square Top. I had this beautiful mountain to myself and I didn't miss the extra 200 feet! I ascended the SE ridge and descended the class 2 talus of the NE ridge.

First Climbs  Sucess!

Together with Decatur (12,890 ft) and Argentine Peak (13,738), Square Top Mountain was one of the first peaks in Colorado I climbed. The date is just a guess - it was quite a long time ago. We camped at Shelf Lake, gained the ridge to the west, and then hiked the ridge to each of the high points.

Rkymtn and I enjoyed a windy and cold day on Square Top. Didn't see anyone else till we got close to the parking lot. A good half day training climb.

This climb makes for a great training day. Beautiful weather and only 3 others on the mountain made for a great day.

From Guanella Pass  Sucess!

This makes for a great, relatively easy winter outing (well, at least it did before they stopped plowing Guanella Pass). Terribly windy and cold up high as usual.

Trifecta  Sucess!

Summited Square Top Mountain, Argentine Peak and Mt. Wilcox on a bluebird day from near the Guanella Campground. Saw lots of mountain goats on the west ridge and wild flowers were everywhere. Still a little snow here and there but it can be avoided.

I came back  Sucess!

Square Top was the first mountain I ever attempted back in 1983. We were turned back by lightning. Later that summer I climbed James Peak to make it my first summit. I still wanted to climb Square Top so I came back for it and was successful this time.
