Yep  Sucess!

I thought I summated this one already. Turns out I was on the wrong mountain. I ended up on Squaretop this time. Ran into some cute guys with lolly pops on the way down. That made my day.

Honda Civic meets SUV  Sucess!

My Honda and I got to the Guanella Pass parking lot and saw 12 SUVs. Who needs 'em?!? They all did Bierstadt and Evans; I hiked Squaretop and met only ptarmigan. Napped in the chilly sunshine and had an excellent day all around.

Guanella Pass Loop  Sucess!

I intended to cross over Square Top to summit Argentine Peak but only made it this far. The clouds were too dark, big and patchy. Maybe should try the west ridge (Argentine).

Square Top/Argentine  Sucess!

Climbed Square Top & Argentine from Guanella Pass on a stellar early spring day. This was the most snow I have seen up here in 3 visits to the area. I climbed the east ridge to avoid any avy danger. The traverse across the willows wasn't bad.

The morning stared out beautiful and sunny with plenty of fresh powder from the previous nights storm. It clouded up in the afternoon and got cold. I went from a t-shirt and no hat or gloves in the morning to a full Burton ski jacket, gloves, fleece hat AND hoodie & ski goggles by 2:00pm.
It was a good, long, strenous day though.

Total ascents = 5. Good early season 13'er, as long as avalanche condtions are minimal.

Short and sweet. My buddy even went swimming in one of those alpine tarns you pass on the way.

Climbed with fellow SP member, Woodie. There were two other climbing parties on the mountain besides us. Nice views of Grays and Torreys. It was an unusually warm day, with record high temps in Denver, and about 25F on the summit at 10:45 a.m.

Climbed with Larry V during winter Colorado SP outing. Great hike- we couldn't have had better luck with the weather. Snowshoes would have been helpful but not necessary.

Want to avoid the crowds on the 4th? Climb Square Top, I didn't see anyone else the entire route.

NIce hike, but at 13k a system moved in and the visibility dropped to about 20 yards. I went on to the summit but will have to save Argentine/Wilcox for another day. I wish I could have seen the great views!

Another easy day in the mountains. Really surprised to see a trail so much of the way, but that was great. My first bicentennial.

Had a short day at work, got off at 12:00 so I headed up to Guanella Pass. Started the hike at 2:19 and made it to the top at 4:38. Great views, wonderful hike.

Route Climbed: Guanella Pass Date Climbed: June 2, 2005

I hiked this with the Colorado Mountain Club. The weather looked pretty bad from Denver, but it cleared up a little when we got to the trailhead. It was pretty windy and cold above Square Top Lakes, and there were some ominous clouds over Evans and Bierstadt. We were only on the summit for a few minutes when the leader ordered us back down: he had seen lightning around Bierstadt, so we boogied back down as fast as we could.
